With the closing of the voter polls this evening, America will learn if nothing is going to happen or if worse things will happen. The best part? No more campaigning, no more spending millions on ads right in our faces while we eat cold beans from a can while surrounded by a murky moat of Sandy aftermath. But some of you love the idea of the campaign: touring around the country, spreading one’s gospel, selling anthology box sets. Well, good news for those dudes, as ZS are embarking on the campaign trail, starting November 25.
Left-wing saxophonist Sam Hilmer is running for re-election as BOSS with new running mates drummer Greg Fox (ex-Liturgy, Guardian Alien) and guitarist Patrick Higgins (ex-Animal, Bachanalia). In the process, they’ll promote their most recent economy-stimulator of all things ZS on one voluptuous boxset, Score - The Complete Sextet Works: 2002-2007, which was released on September 11, a patriotic day, mind you.
You can see an inspirational outtake from a ZS campaign on Noisey, if you’d like. Have a star-spangled tissue handy to wipe the tears that will potentially fall from your God-fearing eyes. Also check out a free track from the boxset here:
