After self-releasing a single every month for the last half of 2008, zerobridge is back with a new EP entitled There We Were, Now Here We Are available Nov. 17th. The EP includes six tracks reflecting the musical journey the band has been on for the last 4 years careening between the fury of a politically motivated track like TWA, a Replacements-esque rocker like There We Were, Now Here We Are, and a moving ballad like Venus In Arms (a fan favorite included on the EP almost completely because of the fans insistence). The first single 2mins5 (pronounced two-minutes-five) is a punchy pop-rock gem, rounding up the likes of U2, New Order, The Clash and others and making them all comfortably sit together within the constraints of two minutes and thirty-nine seconds. Completing the song cycle of the EP are How Long, with its sing-along chorus fans join in on at every show, and It Is What It Is, the perfect down tempo compliment to wrap up the EP and make you want to start the journey all over again from the beginning.

Din explains his feeling behind zerobridges independent release of the There We Were, Now Here We Are EP: We’ve been STRICTLY independent for as long as we’ve been together and maybe even more than we would like to be. We’ve accumulated a catalog of songs that no one’s heard outside our regional fan base and have not recorded until now. It seems that in this digital age for music, what better way for a band like us to establish ourselves and get our music heard the way we want to make it sound than to use the internet as our distribution company. It’s still a challenge. Creating music still takes time and money, but it’s on our terms and while I still think they are necessary, we don’t have to deal with labels – just directly with music fans.
