German quartet confirms appearance at Wacken Open Air Festival, unveils 'Holding On' performance video
Today, the German psychedelic rock n' roll outfit ZODIAC releases "Road Tapes Vol. 1," a digital live album recorded during their fall European headlining tour. "Equal parts guitar-drench, Sabbatherian romp and mournful '70s rock" (Metal Blast), the album was tracked by engineer Florian Steppke and mixed and mastered by long-time collaborator Martin Meinschaffer (Long Distance Calling). A live video for the song "Holding On" can be seen at this location or below: 
Featuring tracks taken from the band's three acclaimed studio albums – "Sonic Child" (2014), "A Hiding Place" (2013) and "A Bit of Devil" (2012) – "Road Tapes Vol. 1" aptly showcases ZODIAC's unique blues-driven, classic rock-inspired sound, which Revolver describes as a "nod to '70s riff-lords from Deep Purple to Zeppelin." The complete track listing is as follows: 

1. Swinging On The Run 
2. Free 
3. Holding On (video)
4. Cortez The Killer (Neil Young cover)
5. A Bit Of Devil 
6. Rock Bottom Blues
7. Diamond Shoes 
8. A Penny And A Dead Horse 
9. Moonshine 
10. Coming Home 

Digital downloads of "Road Tapes Vol. 1" are now available via iTunes or Amazon:

The album can also be streamed in full at Spotify. A limited number of physical copies are available at 

Formed in 2010 when Long Distance Calling drummer Janosch Rathmer and guitar wizard Nick Van Delft teamed with Rocketchief member Stephen Gall (guitars), ZODIAC have brought their passion for handmade, pure and inspiring music to audiences across Europe with acts including Spriitual Beggars, The Sword and Graveyard in addition to appearing at several of the continent's largest festivals.
