(New Music Monday is adapted from Music Monday, hosted by Lauren at Always Me)

With the news that Zoax are releasing their self-titled debut album in May, I had to feature them on New Music Monday. I've been a huge supporter of Zoax since I saw them supporting Tonight Alive two years ago, and it's great seeing them taking such huge leaps forward.

Zoax are Adam Carroll (vocals), Doug Wotherspoon (guitar, vocals), Joe Copcutt (bass), Sean Weir (guitar) and Jonathan Rogers (drums). With Adam's huge beard and dominating stage persona, he's unquestionably recognisable, but it's actually Joe that you're more likely to have encountered before: he was the bassist for Rise To Remain prior to their split, and he's a member of supergroup AxeWound, working alongside members of Cancer Bats and Bullet For My Valentine.
Zoax formed in 2013, and the fact that they've achieved so much in three years is very impressive. As well as the aforementioned slot supporting Tonight Alive, they've toured with The Qemists, We Are The Ocean and HECK, and have an upcoming opening slot on Funeral For A Friend's final tour. Last year, they played an amazing array of festivals (including Takedown, Y Not?, Havoc, Butserfest and Breakout Festival) and this year they're making their debut at Download Festival, a setting in which I'm sure they will thrive.
With two EPs under their belts (namely 2014's 'XIII' and last year's 'Is Everybody Listening?') it's about time that Zoax finally announced an album, and I can't wait for May 13th to hurry up and arrive so that it can be unleashed on the world.

Zoax released their most recent song, 'The Bad Blood', last week - check that out below.

The likelihood is that Zoax will be announcing some headline shows near the release of the album, and if you can get along to one of those I'd highly recommend it. You'll never have more fun that you do at a Zoax show, and you can never anticipate what Adam will do.

I hope you enjoyed this New Music Monday! If you have a band and you'd like to be featured next week, you can contact me on Twitter or through my contact page
