New Brunswick’s ECMA and Music NB award winning mantra doom duo ZAUM are sharing with fans their new music video for “The Enlightenment” premiered via InvisibleOranges.com. The track is off ZAUM‘s second full length “Eidolon” released in 2016 via I HATE Records with distribution via Plastic Head/Sony Music throughout Europe and Century Media in North America to follow their 2014 debut album “Oracles”.

ZAUM‘s Kyle Alexander McDonald (Bass/Vocals/Synth/Textures) comments:
“Being that I’m a giant fan of the work of Seth Smith and Nancy Urich (of CUT/OFF/TAIL) due to their unique and unconventional approach to filmmaking – I felt Seth’s David Lynch-esque perspective could be a bizarre yet intriguing take on “The Enlightenment” for people to consider. Their work (like our music) inspires and encourages thought rather than providing literal answers. I’m thrilled with the result and hope people open their minds to the layers of potential reality.”
In their three years as an active touring band ZAUM have amassed 200+ shows (mainly international) under their belts including support stints for Voivod, Pentagram, and Cauldron. The duo recently announced they will be embarking on Canadian dates in Ontario and Quebec (dates listed below) with support from Sweden’s FIREBREATHERwhom the band toured Europe with last year (watch their music video “Release The Lava” here.)
ZAUM‘s Kyle Alexander McDonald comments:
“We’re floored to have FIREBREATHER join us for this Canadian tour, much of which was a makeup for the cities we missed last summer. We toured three weeks across Europe with the 3-piece Swedish stoner doom band and are very close with them both personally and also intertwined with them lore wise within ZAUM. Their lead vocalist Mattias sang a part on our last album and will be performing that live with us here in Canada for the first time. Our intentions are to head directly into the studio afterwards and finish album #3 with a 2019 release in mind.”

ZAUM is a passage toward the dark realizations of the old world; a monolithic doomy mantra based meditative experience forged by bass and drums interwoven with sitar, woodwind, string and synth textures. Based in Moncton, NB – observers experience a tranquil resonance whereby the astral and physical planes can co-exist and be understood from a natural perspective.
