'THE DEVIL IN YOUR HEART' is a high five to the inconsolable in all of us, a celebration of triumph and relief, born through the eyes and ears of three musicians who had to go there to come back. THE DEVIL IN YOUR HEART is the fist pumping new album from London alt-rockers, Zico Chain.
THE DEVIL IN YOUR HEART is a self produced labor of love. Having given up everything to pursue the unknown, the band bedded down in various derelict buildings around the UK and began recording.
"We never went near a studio. We were sat in an empty house in winter, with ants everywhere and no heating, but our amps were still buzzing and we were talking about how we could find a way to record an orchestra" adds Chris.
The band realized every seemingly impossible ambition and went on to work with award winning string arranger Audrey Riley, who's impressive resume includes collaborations with rock giants such as Muse and Foo Fighters. The result is a self-made and self-funded lap of honor, an achievement of truly epic proportions. Armed with their hard earned formidable live reputation and their relentless DIY ethics, it's almost impossible to imagine ZICO CHAIN not climbing to the greatest heights and beyond in 2012.
