The Zombies’ Sixth Studio Album

The Zombies’ Sixth Studio Album

The Zombies return with a brainy new release — only their sixth studio album in 50 years! Colin Blunstone remains one of the most richly vibrant pop-rock vocalists of all time, and chief songwriter/co-vocalist/organist Rod Argent brings the trademark Zombies sound — aided considerably by Kinks and Argent bassist Jim Rodford, Jim’s son Steve Rodford on drums, and guitarist Tom Toomey. Among the best tunes are the soulful “Moving On,” the radiant remake of the band’s ’60s hit “I Want You Back Again,” the Steely Dan–esque “And We Were Young Again,” and the Beatles-referencing “Lady Madonna” sound-a-like “Maybe Tomorrow.” Also cool, the album cover was painted by Terry Quirk, who likewise did the trippy art for the classic Odessey and Oracle record. The Zombies play Ojai’s Libbey Bowl on Sunday, September 4. For The Indy’s interview with Blunstone, see
