Some of Zao's early material is getting a fresh treatment in the form of a new 12" compilation called Steadfast Records: The First Two Seven Inches. Due out on vinyl and CD formats on July 12th, this release brings together tracks from the band's early offerings. Pre-orders are now live.

The band shared the following:

Available now for Pre-Order "Steadfast Records: The First Two Seven Inches". A 12-inch compilation.

Bringing together tracks from "The Tie That Binds," a split 7" with Outcast from Dayton, OH, released in 1995, and "Treadwater…," a split 7" with Through and Through from BC, Canada, released shortly after in 1996. The audio has been meticulously remastered by Adam Boose at Cauliflower Audio. The first half of the album includes the Zao track, "Security," intended for the original 7" but omitted due to time constraints. (This track later appeared on a CD reissue).
