If the previous releases from Philadelphia’s Zolof The Rock & Roll Destroyer had listeners daydreaming of candy-apples and pandabear cuddle-parties, then the band’s highly anticipated, Schematics CD, will conjure images of apple martinis and dinosaur orgies.
Schematics marks the third LP from Zolof The Rock & Roll Destroyer, and the first since 2003’s dance-a-thon Jalopy Go Far, released on Eyeball Records (My Chemical Romance, Thursday). Since then, the band released an EP featuring Kenny Vasoli of the Starting Line and Anthony Green from Circa Survive and Saosin, and recently collaborated with friends Reel Big Fish on a six-song split exclusively containing duets between the 2 bands. When not in the studio, Zolof tours nationally with bands like the Gym Class Heroes and Motion City Soundtrack.
These pop-rock angels have earned their wings and achieved a greater rock realization with their creation of Schematics. The moog synthesizers and jump-up-and-down sing-a-longs are still mainstays in Zolof The Rock & Roll Destroyer’s new songs but also present is a maturity of songwriting that deepens their musical pool… even if that pool is filled with Kool-Aid.
