Zorch premiere outtake from the Flaming Lips' Beatles tribute album via SPIN, announce new North American tour dates

"A sonic tornado of joyous electro-madness." -- Austin Chronicle 

Austin, TX hyper-kinetic duo Zorch premiere their B-side/outtake of The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)" recorded for the Flaming Lips' upcoming tribute to that album, titled With A Little Help From My Fwends. Zorch's original contribution of the album track "Good Morning, Good Morning" will be on the final release, but Lips frontman Wayne Coyne also asked the band to record 2 additional songs. By the time the duo submitted this song, several other artists had also covered it. Some form of those recordings will make the final cut. With Coyne's blessing, Zorch's rendition of "Sgt. Pepper's" is available to hear and share via SPIN HERE. (Direct Soundcloud HERE)

 This track features guest vocals in which every syllable of the lyrics has a different combination of voices, which never repeats. Vocalists are: Holland Andrews (AU, Like A Villian), Emma Ruth Rundle (Marriages, Red Sparowes), Karla Manzur (Dana Falconberry, Alejandro Escovedo), Ben Aqua, Rich Aucoin and Zorch drummer/singer Sam Chown.

 Zorch once again hit the road later this month for a set of North American tour dates, which includes a run with Fujiya & Miyagi. The duo also plays Fun Fun Fun Fest in their hometown in November. Please see complete dates below.

Zorch recently premiered a live in-studio performance video via Earmilk. The dual perspective clip for album track "Zut Alors" is available to watch/share HERE. (Direct YouTube HERE.) And, a high quality multi-camera live video from SXSW 2014 of the band's "We All Die Young" is available to watch/share HERE.

The band's full length debut Zzoorrcchh was released on CD, LP and download via Sargent House on July 23rd, 2013.
