Zao is currently wrapping up work on their new album, which will hit streets this spring via Ferret Music. The effort has been titled "Awake?" and is currently being mixed in San Marco, CA by Daniel Castleman. According to the group, "It features 11 tracks. 10 of them are brand new while 'Romance of the Southern Spirit' has finally been given the sonic quality it deserves with a brand new recording that smashes the basement b-side version you've heard." Song titles include "1,000,000 Outstretched Arms Of Nothing", "The Eyes Behind The Throne", "Human Cattle Masses Marching Forward", "Quiet Passenger Pt. 2." The group comments: "We can't wait for you guys to hear this album! We are very proud of it and in our humble opinions it is very reminiscent of what you have come to know and love about Zao over the years. Every band likes to say 'this new album is our best yet' so we won't say that to you. We know that albums like 'Blood & Fire' and 'Liberate' will always be fan favorites and they are special to us as well. But with that being said believe us when we say that we strongly feel 'Awake?' is a more than worthy addition to our catalog."
