Zen Mantra Join Muzai
Having released a number singles independently, Perry's psych-chillwave (please, make up your own mind what genre it fits) project Zen Mantra will release their debut album digitally October 2012 through MUZAI Records in New Zealand, with a UK release having already been negotiated also and a number of international label also interested in working with Perry. 'Soothsayer' will commence the working relationship between Zen Mantra and MUZAI Records from August.
It's not strictly a new working relationship though - you maybe familiar that Perry was originally part of the label with another band, Psych Tigers. Having had to choose between which project to concentrate on the most, it's with deep regret that Psych Tigers has taken a permanent back seat. There is some bright news, however - an EP of material that was to be form an album will be released through new MUZAI imprint, S.Base, later in the year as a download-only release.
