Ed Zealous Debut Album Plans with Eliot James

The Belfast quartet return with plans for a debut album with producer Eliot James

For a band who has opened for some of the most exciting acts on the planet and who have graced some of the most prestigious festival stages that young bands can only dream of, Ed Zealous have been very quiet as of late.

The band have been getting down to business and masterminding their long overdue debut album, taking the decision seven months ago to stop gigging and concentrate on the most important asset a band require - songs.

This August, the band will be working with the Winner of this year's MPG Breakthrough Producer of The Year award - Eliot James. You will know him from his work on Two Door Cinema Club’s debut album Tourist History along with the likes of Bloc Party, Does it Offend You Yeah?, Noah and the Whale and Kaiser Chiefs. Early demos are promising 'complex but utterly danceable tracks' say the band.

There are no dates as of yet for an album release but Ed Zealous expect to host a single release in early Autumn followed by an extensive U.K tour.

Lead singer Stephen McAvoy commented on developments:

'We worked with a lot of great producers across the U.K but in the back of our minds we knew Eliot was really the only guy for the job. We've been fanatical about these songs and now that Eliot is on board it feels like the final piece of the puzzle is in place.'
