is a boundary-pushing, unapologetic alternative rock 5 piece based in Atlanta, GA. Ethereal melody meets massive carnal beats and catchy rude riffs to deliver alternative music with moxie. This young indie group has sold out venues like Eddie’s Attic, The Georgia Theatre, and The 40 Watt Club, touring the southeast supporting debut release Fortress. ZALE is currently recording their second LP at Madison Records to be released fall 2017. ZALE opened for The Revivalists and Bright Light Social Hour, played Bragg Jam and Dogwood Festival and looks forward to a full fall tour schedule.
Fans have described their sound and live performance as fun, energetic, badass, fearless, edgy, tight, sensual, and dynamic. ZALE is comprised of distinguishable best friends: lead singer and eccentric powerhouse Hannah Zale, assertive guitarist Christian Gerner-Smidt, heavy-hitting drummer Alex Morrison, explosive bassist Jackson Reed Hodges, and elysian electric violist Melissa Loga. This band is a collaboration of contrasting influences coming together to create fresh rock music celebrating both nostalgia and indifference.
