2014 will start with the second installment in the Zampler series (it's a "series" now, apparently) wittingly titled "The Bug's In Your Brain" 21-track cd sampler. About half of the songs are previously unreleased physically AND digitally - so this is the first place you can hear them. ALL bands on the sampler have or will be releasing material with ZBR in the near future, barring any unforeseen Klendathu spore attacks. Check the website and the OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain blog for updates and other material designed to do the exact opposite of the brain bug - inject knowledge into your skull! Don't be a Xander.
SO, starting right now and continuing daily for 21 days, Zegema Beach Records will release a snippet of each song. This'll give anyone interested a chance to hear the bands before the zampler is posted on January 1st, 2014 for stream, download and cd purchase. The artwork is being done by Serjio of La Parade and will kick serious ass. The packaging template will be the same as the first sampler 'A Trip To The Outer Rings' but the art will be 100% different.
