Swiss band Zeal & Ardor have unveiled the lead single, “Bow,” from their just-announced new record. The 14-track Self-Titled studio recording is due out via MVKA on February 11th, 2022.

Multi-lingual frontman Gagneux, states, “With the self-titled record, we have arrived at where I imagined this project should sound like. It’s the longest we’ve worked on a single record and I believe it shows. The most important thing for an album of ours to do, is transport you instantly into our mood, our world. Even though this might not be the one you might expect from us, this record certainly delivers on that front. We had time to hone into what we think makes us interesting and what sounds we would like to explore through this we have found our home. Home is burning. Welcome home.”

As for the lead single, he notes, “‘Bow’ takes out established musical themes and places them into a completely different background. It’s an amalgam of things bestowing bad luck demanding you to join it.”
