2007 saw the release of the second Zen Motel album ‘Stations of the Dead’, another triumph of independent spirit, yet again recorded, produced and released by the band themselves. The album forges its own unique sound and character from the Grunge-a-Billy of ‘Head’, through the introspective ‘Drugstar’ to the sleaze techno of ’Trackside Pussy’, it’s a album without a dull moment. ‘Stations of the Dead’ also features guest appearances by CJ from U.K rock legends The Wildhearts on 3 tracks, a meeting of minds that went so well Lee went on to play in CJ’s band ‘The Satellites’, recording an album and touring China and Japan. Through these tours, Japanese record label Vinyl Junkie, home of U.K chart bothering bands The Wombats and The Courteeners became aware of Zen Motel and licensed the Zen Motel album, releasing it in Japan in July 2007.
Playing with everyone from The Backyard Babies to The Medieval Babes Zen Motel have developed a reputation for being one of the most explosive and exciting rock bands on the planet. In a world where style rates over content Zen Motel are a perfect antidote to the invasion of well connected rich kids in their uniforms playing gap year trust fund rock .
