maybe this will keep Greg Fox from trying to make music alone?

actually the definition of douchebag hipster has to do with leaving comments no one gives a fuck about on brooklynvegan. making art is a little different. nice contribution tho

In a way, aren't we all douchebag hipsters?

"Olympics" gets the gold! ammiright??

Greg Fox is not a hipster. He's more of a hippy, which is much better IMO.

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2012 4:28 PM

"brooklyn" "vegan" does it get more hipster than that? jeez...

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2012 4:45 PM

To me "hipster" is a useless word because you can apply it to anyone in Williamsburg and Bushwick. Literally look at ANYONE and say "look at that hipster" and it works!

I prefer "cool kids"

You don't get to chose your nickname or label, trendy scarf.

THIS IS GREAT NEWS

ah, a reminder of when Zs were actually good, before they turned into a hippy jam band and started pandering to and using everybody they could to get ahead in the scene. those were the days . . .

Greg Fox is a nice guy & a pretty solid drummer.

Who cares what they are wearing if its not completely obnoxious.

Theres plenty of carbon copy sleeve tattoo metal heads who are clones of each other & that goes for their music too.

ZS: totally pandering to everyone

some real good, smart stuff on here..

you dis ZS you dis yourself

Greg Fox is a total beast

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2012 7:09 PM

I think Zs has a few more good records in them, especially with greg in there. I just saw Guardian Alien and he wailed. Fucking brilliant. Rhinestone Laughingstock: I don't tink you can blame them for trying to get ahead. There is no livelihood for artists that don't push there way through. Got to pay the rent......and it's not like they sold out or something.

They are one pussy hair away from being assclowns, and the trend doesn't bode well for them

Best band photo of all time! What's a 'hipster'?!

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2012 8:34 PM

101 hipsters are going to buy this. 30 of them will be buying double copies, sending them home to Iowa, where they will be safely stored until the Zs "revival" in 2030.

Works in advertising & thinks Radiohead is cutting edge.

If you think these guys care about the "big time" or playing large venues your wrong.

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2012 1:31 AM

let's hope they bother to write some new material instead of playing "new slaves" for five more years.

Gee. I wonder why Ben Greenberg and Ian Antonio quit? They probably got tired of getting 100 email spams about Sam Hillmer's solo project every week.
