Los Angeles-based Zero Theorem are continuing their momentum from 2020 with the release of new EPThe Killing II’, now available worldwide.  The band combines existential lyrics about the human experience with blistering instrumentation. The group follows the lead of bands such as Tool and Primus by creating an entire universe of sound and light for fans to explore. The band teamed with renowned producer Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, Ozzy Osbourne, Papa Roach) on the EP and new focus track ‘Joke”.

“Joke” expands on the band’s exploration of what it means to be authentically human, especially at a time in which the lines between organic and artificial reality continue to blur.  In the accompanying video directed by Daniel Prothero, Zero Theorem expands its sci-fi universe with the depiction of another mysterious alien world.  Here, a childlike being emerges from the ground to wreak havoc on the planet and its unsuspecting inhabitants as Prothero’s psychedelic 2D animation takes him on a whimsical journey of destruction and transformation.

Rock At Night says: Zero Theorem’s video features brightly colored animation as a back drop to aggressive guitar riffs and soaring choruses as the lyrics ask “open your mind” or the “joke is on you.”
