The Zealots live on “Local Color” WNCW
The Zealots doing "Poppycock" at Fleetwoods, Asheville, NC, May 18, 2018
Interweaving exuberant melodies with piercing insight, The Zealots' 2018 release “Jawbone” is the most recent evidence of the range of George Terry McDonald's songcraft. The 14 songs on this, their 4th album, delivers a cohesive body of work which expands and intensifies their vision. From folk-rock to reggae, to ska, punk and jangle-pop, the diverse styles of “Jawbone” are unified by its determination to explore our fraught relationships with our culture and each other. Themes of greed, inhumanity, self-deception and abuse are the evils on which “Jawbone” sets its sights.
