    IZZ to Release New EP Half Life on July 28, 2020

    NY Prog Rockers IZZ to Release New EP Half Life on July 28, 2020

    On the heels of their celebrated 2019 studio album Don’t Panic, IZZ is set to release a 20-minute EP entitled Half Life featuring four tracks including three new studio songs as well as a previously unreleased live version of “The Wait of It All,” a track originally featured on their 2004 EP, Ampersand Volume 1.

    Half Life will be available beginning on July 28 via download on Bandcamp: A limited vinyl pressing and a limited run of Half Life on CD will also be available for purchase directly from the band and their label, Doone Records, via their website:

    “The title track of this EP was actually written several years ago, but when we listened to it again recently, it took on new meaning given the uncertainty in the world today and it became obvious to us that we needed to finish mixing it and get it out into the world,” says bassist John Galgano.

    Lyrically and thematically, the three new studio songs cover a wide range from the joy and mystery of “The Soul of Music” to the heartfelt contentment of “Into the Sun” to the escapism and wonder of the title track “Half Life.” Musically, the EP shows a different side to IZZ which the band is keen to present to their fans.

    “We’re a band that never likes to do the same thing twice. We want to keep things interesting not only for our fans, but for ourselves,” says keyboardist and producer Tom Galgano.

    “This EP comes at an interesting time for the band and for the world because we have been using our time at home these past few months to take a deep dive into writing our next proper studio album which we plan on releasing in 2021 and this EP kind of snuck its way into our consciousness, so we decided to go with it and follow the muse,” says drummer Brian Coralian.

    Watch the music video premiere for Half Life on PROG Magazine's website, Produced, Directed, and Filmed by Mallory Kinney, who also worked with IZZ on the video for Don’t Panic:

    Received vinyl Half Life yesterday - sounds great!
    Also if you're an IZZ fan, I also just spun Laura Meade's new LP "Remedium" which was excellent, and which has a more IZZ-like feel than her previous self-titled release.
