Love Zombies

Love Zombies are a band from London England formed by songwriters Hollis Mahady and Davey Fitzsimon in late 2014.Their distinctive brand of power/pop/punk/new wave music has a strong 60’s/70’s influence combining punk attitude and messages with instantly memorable melodies and catchy chorus’s.

Their energy, realness and rawness on stage, backed up by their strong songwriting abilities, dedication and determination to their craft, has earned them a dedicated group of followers known as the “Love Zombies Army”. Hollis’s intensity and performance on stage has been compared to a young Iggy Pop while her vocal range, in one phrase, can go from Courtney Love to Gwen Stefani.

The band has performed throughout Europe at many festivals including Reading and Leeds, Download, Sonisphere, Groezrock, Live at Leeds, Dot to Dot,
Camden Rocks, The Great Escape and The Warped Tour. They have opened for acts such as L7, The WildHearts, The Primitives, One OK Rock, Alkaline Trio, Bleachers, Rock Goddess, H.E.A.T, Crazytown, Me first and the Gimme Gimme’s among other’s and toured the UK with the legendary punk band Stiff Little Fingers.

They released their 3 track EP ‘Be Honest’ in September of 2015 through Strange World Management which included two tracks ‘International Bug’ and ‘Teleportation’ produced by Ginger WildHeart and the title track Be Honest produced by Jason Perry. They also worked with renowned singer songwriter and producer Ian Broudie (Lightning Seeds, Echo and the Bunny Men, The Coral) on the track ‘Sixteen Razors’, which has a planned future release.

After recording their EP Hollis shortly thereafter joined UK Rock band Hey! Hello, along side Ginger Wildheart, gaining recognition as one of Rock’s most fierce up and coming front women. Their video for Be Honest off of the Be Honest EP was voted by fans as the BEST VIDEO OF THE YEAR at the 2016 Pure Rawk music awards. The band also took home the award for BEST NEW BAND OF 2016.

In December of 2016, Love Zombies launched a Pledge Music campaign, a UK fan funded platform, which raised them enough money to record their debut album. Hollis and Davey’s songs caught the attention of legendary producer Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Jimmy Eat World, Arctic Monkeys, Them Crooked Vultures, Chris Cornell, Eleven), after management had sent some early demos to him, and he agreed to produce their debut album. Hollis and Davey flew to Los Angeles where they recorded ‘PASSIONFRUIT’, bringing in the help of Joey Castillo (Queens of the Stone Age , Zakk Wylde, Eagles Of Death Metal) on drums. Lead singer Hollis calls Love Zombies music high vibrational rock and roll and goes on to say that: “Love Zombies is more then a band to me. It is a life style choice. Choosing to live as a Love Zombie is waking up and choosing to try to live consciously on a daily basis from a place of love, empathy, compassion and respect for yourself and others. I try to incorporate these kind of important messages into our music in a fun, lighthearted and meaningful way.” Messages such as ‘Lighten Up’ , ‘Awaken’ and ‘Depression Won’t Win’ are just some examples of slogans written across various types of clothing and items from their hand made DIY merchandise line Hollis developed. ‘Passionfruit’ plans to be released to fans and pledgers in September of 2016 and will coincide with their Co-headline tour with Scottish rockers The Amorettes.
