Nov. 24, 2014 – Davenport, Iowa – Quad Cities-based quartet The Zealots have dropped a music video and free download for their aggressive and poignant new track, “Chips the Fish.” The song is an explosion of emotion and passion from one of the fastest growing bands in the music scene. The Zealots, which only formed six month ago, tapped Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, The Devil Wears Prada) for the production of the track. The track was also mixed by Joey Sturgis and MixingBros.com
A “Zealot” (pronounced Zell-ut) is someone who is fanatical and uncompromising in the pursuit of their ideals or goals. The Zealots apply this idea to their music and life — harnessing all their time and energy into a band that is coming to maturity just six months after forming. Hailing from the Quad Cities, the band met through failed previous musical endeavors and mutual friends. In their short time together, they have bonded over the common goal of spreading their music as far and wide as possible.
