ZIMMERS HOLE, the project featuring guitarist Jed Simon and bassist Byron Stroud of STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, will play its first show in six years on January 23, 2016 at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Also scheduled to appear are DAYGLO ABORTIONS, PROCESS, GOLERS and AGGRESSION.
ZIMMERS HOLE is best known for its crazy, theatrical live show full of props, humor and blistering old-school metal influence.
ZIMMERS HOLE’s current lineup is:
* Chris “The Heathen” Valagao (WEST OF HELL) – Vocals
* Jed Simon (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, FRONTLINE ASSMBLY, TENET, SCAR THE MARTYR) – Guitar
* Gene Hoglan (TESTAMENT, DARK ANGEL, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD – Drums
* Byron Stroud (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, FEAR FACTORY, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, CITY OF FIRE) – Bass
ZIMMERS HOLE’s most recent album, “When You Were Shouting At The Devil…We Were In League With Satan”, was released in March 2008 via Century Media Records.
Born in 1991, ZIMMERS HOLE has been Byron and Jed’s significant other band when not busy with STRAPPING YOUNG LAD or FEAR FACTORY. In the beginning, it was always just a way of spending the weekend drinking far too much and writing absurd songs. As time went on, the group “matured” somewhat, although maturity is highly overrated as far as these guys go, but two remarkable albums (“Bound By Fire” and “Legion of Flames”), a series of successful tours and a string of absolutely unforgettable shows soon followed, putting the mighty ZIMMERS HOLE on the lips of many.
