Seattle punk legends ZEKE return with their first new album in over 14 years entitled Hellbender! Short, fast, loud, and to the fuckin’ point, ZEKE’s signature mix of hyperspeed thrash-punk and Motörhead possessed, hard as nails, rock n’ roll is making it's way to Richmond for the first time in a long one to celebrate the new record! 25 years into their career and still as powerful and aggressive as ever, we couldn't be more excited to host this top tier act here at Strange Matter. We've paired them up with two of RVA's finest in the like-minded heavy brethren of U.S. BASTARDS and LOUD NIGHT!

United States West Coast thrashers Zeke establishes a nasty disposition while cutting teeth on their own brash hardcore punk. A foursome since 1993, Zeke has released a handful of EPs and full-lengths through Wrecking Ball Records and IFA Records, but inked a deal with Epitaph in 1998 and Relapse Records in 2003. Zeke has had a broad career playing with many bands such as Pearl Jam, Iron Maiden, Korn, Slipknot, Suicidal Tendencies, The Misfits, The Damned and The Supersuckers to name a few. Zeke has also played everything from stadiums with 50.000 people, to bars with 10 people, but the spirit has remained the same, rock like this might be the last show ever. Zeke as a band plans on delivering what one might expect, a very fast, live, prolific, punk rock show that leaves you salivating for more. The band has been recording a new album in 2016 and announced an European tour for summer 2017. New album 'Hellbender' released on March 2018 and the band is currently touring Europe again spring 2018.
