ZILLION, the Joliet, Illinois-based band featuring two former members of FIVE POINTE O, has posted two new songs on its MySpace page. The group will play two shows in the next couple of weeks (this Saturday in Davenport, IA and July 11 in Lake Station, IN) before focusing on the songwriting process for the band's full-length debut.ZILLION supported KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, LACUNA COIL and CHIMAIRA on two dates in early May. ZILLION was born in late 2007 when founding members Sharon Struble (guitar), Daniel Struble (vocals), and Kyle Blum (bass) had the unremitting urge to return to what they'd known and impassioned most. The idea was to perfect the fusion of heavy rock and metal. While taking very deliberative steps toward bringing this vision to life, they recruited Bruce Midlock (drums), and Matt Moore (guitar). While ZILLION is very much in its infancy, each member brings a wide range of experience to the band. Some of this experience includes signing to a major label, national and international touring, many recording sessions in the most
professional settings, countless local shows, and the dedication to make all of these things possible.
