Ruins from Tokyo, Japan and Zu from Rome Italy have known each other, been around each other, and toured together since the late ’90s.
Both bands are devoted to creating idiosyncratic forms that push music to its limits and break any genre and style boundary, ( you can call it prog-metal but it’s just scratching the surface). It was long overdue that they would conspire and collaborate at some point in history.
So Ruins founder and permanent member, legendary drummer & vocalist Yoshida Tatsuya, and both Zu founders and permanent members Luca T Mai and Massimo Pupillo (respectively sax and electric bass) have formed the new creature RuinsZU and will tour Europe together for the first time in Spring 2024.
They will play live both Ruins and Zu material and also new music that they started to write.
No shows booked at the moment.
