It's a new year... so here's a new feature for PFH. Starting from now, on the last day of every month (assuming I remember) PFH will bring you our new feature 'Cover Of The Month'. Essentially we'll search the high and lows of YouTube for a Zebrahead cover that we feel earns the title (one way or another) of 'Cover Of The Month'.
January's 'winner' comes from Italian band Nice Price who did an acoustic cover of Mental Health. You can check it out below!
Bravo! Think you (or your band) can do a better Zebrahead cover? Link us and maybe you'll be featured next month!
Since completing their gigantic UK/European/Japanese tour things have quietened down considerably in the land of Zebrahead, however fear not! Everyone will be pleased to know that the guys are currently hard finishing up a Cover Song album!
As posted by Ben recently in a ReverbNation e-mail, he states that the guys "have been really busy.............tat tat ta da............working on a covers record...yes a covers record.....I will unfold more details soon...but it is almost done!!!.......we are excited...."
PFH can let you know the covers album has a particular theme but we'll leave that for an official announcement, as it really is worth the wait! We are possibly looking at a March/April release for this one but we'll bring you all the details as soon as they are confirmed!
Chris DiCarlo, the former singer for late 90s La Habra based band 3-Ply has set up a MySpace music profile for the band, which I'm pretty sure some people may want to check out! 'Why?' I hear you ask. Well, before becoming the Zebrahead bassist we all know and love, our very own Ben Osmundson played bass in the aforementioned band (as well as occassionally singing!).
Head on over the 3-Ply MySpace Profile and you can listen to some of the old songs (check out LMD in particular) as well as see a few pictures of album/vinyl covers and so forth. Well who'd have thought it eh? Keep an eye on the profile as it's sure to grow once Chris digs out more stuff, and if you're still needing a pre-Zebrahead fix, then head on over to listen to Matty's old band Jank 1000.
Well I look forward to Ben sending me a threatening e-mail. Enjoy!
If you've been wondering the reason why Ben has been taking numerous pictures around the world with a Snoopy stuffed toy (and haven't we all?), then you should thank Zebrahead German Support who decided to get to the bottom of the matter once and for all...

While this is by no means an official additional of Zebrahead to the Guitar Hero franchise (though we all know it's long overdue), thanks to one of the awesome new features in Guitar Hero: World Tour, known as GH Tunes, you can now play along to a Zebrahead song! GH Tunes essentially lets users create their own songs for others to also download for free, and a very clever guy who goes by the name of "The Startled" has created Zebrahead's "Wake Me Up" which you can download for free.
If you have a copy of the game for the Nintendo Wii platform, then head on over to GH Tunes and you'll find the tune slowly clibming it's way up the Top 20 All Time Rated tunes!
Or if you simply want to hear what it's like then head on over to the GH Tunes website where you can stream it in your browser! Good job indeed! Can anyone else do better? Let us know!
Taking a leaf out of New Found Glory's book, Zebrahead have set up a UK based merch site, allowing you to buy previous shirts and other merch from past tours at reduced prices! Click here to check it out.
You can read the following statement from the band below:
instead of having the shirts from the last tour of Europe and the UK sit and wait tell the next tour...we decided to put it up for people to buy at reduced cheap prices....After tours we will start putting things up there for you...it is shipped from the UK so should be cheap for our friends over the pond.......but when it runs out .....it runs out....this is only what remains!!!!!
Hope this makes you happy in pants!!!!go check it out
