Unsigned Trio ZO2 To Tour U.S. With KISS And POISON

According to a posting on their web site, Brooklyn-based trio ZO2 have secured the prestigious opening slot for this summer's KISS/POISON tour. "This would be an outstanding achievement for any band but the truly remarkable fact is that ZO2 is as yet unsigned," the group write. "The thrill of a relative unknown opening for such a legendary act as KISS is outweighed only by the promise of platinum success that position often seems to fulfill. The slot has been held by such musical heavyweights as AC/DC, JUDAS PRIEST, BON JOVI, JOHN MELLENCAMP.

"ZO2's self-financed debut album, 'Tuesdays and Thursdays', produced by industry veteran Bob Held, is an amazing collection of instant classics. The band's appeal is broad as they find fans with the audiences of STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, AUDIOSLAVE and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS and also tap into the rich, organic history of the '70s legends such as GRAND FUNK RAILROAD and HUMBLE PIE. With bands like THE DARKNESS and JET leading the current undeniable rock revival, ZO2 is closing in fast. The band is enjoying early support from radio throughout the Northeast and as far west as Ohio."

The KISS/POISON tour runs from June 10 through August 4.
