I Have Made My Bed In Darkness
Exotic Animal Petting Zoo Post Tracks Online
August 6, 2008
EXOTIC ANIMAL PETTING ZOO have made the tracks “Hairdresser” and “Ira Lore” available on their MySpace page located here http://www.myspace.com/exoticanimalpettingzoo . The two tracks come from the band’s album ‘I Have Made My Bed In Darkness’, which hits stores August 19th through Mediaskare.

Working with producer Stephen Hawkes (The Messenger), the band’s album is a 60-minute behemoth that can’t be pegged into one genre. A blending of personal styles and varied musical tastes, Exotic Animal Petting Zoo’s sound is nothing if not unique. Drawing from such diverse influences as The Smashing Pumpkins, Mike Patton, The Mars Volta, Radiohead, and The Dillinger Escape Plan, they manage to meld jazz fusion, post-rock, progressive metal, hardcore and experimental elements into a whirling sonic maelstrom of uninhibited yet cohesive aural confusion.
