Zillion has released new single “Potluck Lunch For The Cannibals” along with a music video. The track follows up Zillion’s debut single, “Pocket Boy,” which came out earlier this year. The project is a “dark, genre-less musical journey” of exploration.
Speaking on the song & music video Zillion shares:
Those of us who are naive to what truly fuels our perception of reality, unaware of our own damage and how it distorts our relationships are trapped in a purgatory like dream state. When we’re unable to handle and manage our shit, emotions, and baggage, we continually hurt those around us. There’s a golden door in this room. On the other side of that door is self actualization, self awareness, those who have become intimate with their own self enough to transcend to a healthier higher frequency/existence.
Zillion will be supporting Pop Evil this summer on The Vortex Tour along with Oxymorrons, set to kick off June 24th and making stops in Grand Rapids, Houston, Tulsa, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Seattle, and more.
This is how Zillion introduces their work to audiences:
Not much grows north of the Arctic Circle, except dreams and psychosis. Born to an Alaskan drug house protected by a pet wolf, Zillion nurtured both. It’s the classic call to all who destroy or create. Tell your story or your story tells you. Zillion learned to surf his avalanche, to climb out of the belly of the whale, and turned his dirt into fertilizer to grow something that only blooms in the face of darkness.
Trauma frames existence.
This awakening birthed a dark genre-less musical journey that explores the pliability of the human mind, the ringmasters we espouse as gods, the fragility of innocence and beauty, and the polarity of our emotions and the distortions they illuminate. It spawned a show, as if Cirque Du Soleil hired Andre Leon Talley and David Lynch as co-artistic directors. Zillion redefines live theater as Alive Theater. Sight, sound, smell, touch, and a story that pollutes your soul, dropkicks your gut, and highjacks your imagination, altering you forever.
Chaos chases nothingness.
Zillion is a puzzle to solve, a magic trick to be revealed, a doorway into a mad world that defiantly makes more sense than the one we live in. It’s a preying canid on stage, stalking us like our DNA, haunting us in our hometowns, possessing us through the people we love. If all the world’s broken toys made a community, Zillion would be their playground.
Walls become doors.
