“In their self-declared third era, zebrahead have the shininess of a brand-new band, and it’s thrilling to see” — Kerrang

zebrahead is vocalist/rapper Ali Tabatabaee, vocalist/guitarist Adrian Estrella, bassist Ben Osmundson, drummer Ed Udhus, and guitarist Dan Palmer.
When asked about the meaning of the song frontman Estrella says, “Surround yourself with quality, not quantity, not everyone around you has your best interests in mind, “Middle Seat Blues” is about just that!” Bassist Osmundson adds, “Imagine a song that combines a bit of metal, a bit of laid-back groove, and splashes a bit of punk on top. Hard to imagine right? Well, give “Middle Seat Blues” a listen.”
From one long studio session came songs for the III, II, I series of EPs. The II EP will be out on February 3, II is the follow-up to the III EP, which was released in 2021. On the horizon, I EP is expected to be released late fall 2023 with single song and video releases in-between. “Middle Seat Blues” follows the December 2022 song and video release of “Envy Anonymous.” See the video here: https://youtu.be/wk2dkfhjIoY
