Early Reviews:

“this band is that they are so good at what they do, and after twelve albums since 1995, they have earned the right to be leaders of this particular pack. Check out Brain Invaders – its infectious, catchy, imaginative and bloody fantastic. A sonic attack on the sense that you won’t want to recover from.” – Vents Magazine

“Since 2006’s ‘Broadcast to the World,’ Zebrahead have put out a couple of catchy pop-punk records. With their latest release, ‘Brain Invaders,’ Zebrahead has ditched their usual sound for a harder one, reminiscent of their incredible 2003 record, ‘MFZB.’ While the relatable lyrics are plentiful, and the raps more on point than ever, ‘Brain Invaders’ is definitely more Sum 41 (‘Does This Look Infected?’) than Simple Plan (‘No Pads, No Helmets … Just Balls’).” – Bionic Buzz

“Brain Invaders’ is an album that is, most importantly, genuinely great, it is sure to appeal to people that have been following the band since the beginning as well as today’s youth.” – Subba Cultcha

Tons of tour dates coming ASAP!


The Bonus Brothers pre-order has finally arrived! Vinyl is super limited so get yours now…. before it’s gone. These songs, previously appeared as bonus songs on albums, from 2006-2015, in Japan. Finally, with this being an official release, these songs will be available on streaming sites and physical formats outside Japan. To be honest, there are more than a few here that should never have “just been” BONUS SONGS… least that’s what I think!?!?

The Bonus Brothers will never be in stores…..Only available online (digital), our merch store (physical) and maybe on tour…..if there is any left??

We are lucky to have so many amazing friends around the world. You have made our dream of touring and playing music a reality. Without your help and support we could never keep the movement alive.

So in advance, thank you for supporting and helping us continue this amazing world wide adventure. Without you guys, there would be NO zebrahead. It is humbling to have such an incredible world wide FAMILY. So thank you…and see you all soon! Cheers!!!

A few notes and answers:
*CD’s are signed by the band (YES SIGNED)
*Vinyl is hand numbered and will be shipped with an MP3 download card.
(Orders with Vinyl should ship within one week of release date..sorry for the delay)
*Why only 2006-2015?….Because those are the songs we have the rights too. Old record labels control the songs from previous years…which sucks…but if people desire …maybe we can re record them and release them at a later time.
*Why are the digital and physical covers different?…Due to digital store rules… we were not allowed to have 2 different languages or even years on the cover. We find this ridiculous. We suggest you take the .jpg we post and use it to substitute in as the cover for your digital release of The Bonus Brothers. Sorry for the trouble, but we wanted you to have an option of the cover we wanted you to have in the first place!

The Bonus Brothers, New Album? and More!!

Hello World! We have lots of news…we have been busy… and quiet?

1) On November 24th, we will be releasing an album of songs, previously only available in Japan, called “The Bonus Brothers”. It will contain 11 songs and be released in extremely limited quantities of CD/Vinyl and Digital. EXTREMELY LIMITED. We will start pre orders in a 2 weeks. These hard to come by songs have been requested for years ……and it is time we made an official release happen. This will only be available in our webstore and on tour. The songs have been re-mastered and we are excited for you to hear them. Artwork and tracklisting will come in 2 weeks.

2) We have been recording the new album and are getting to the point where we can say we are “ALMOST” done. In December, we will start releasing studio recording videos with snippets of new songs…….excited and nervous for you guys to start hearing some of these songs.

3) New album almost done and “The Bonus Brothers” album being released means…. it is soon time for tour. Not playing many shows right now has been driving us crazy. We miss you guys and can’t wait to be out there drinking or hanging with all of you. Zebrahead is beyond lucky to have made thousands of friends all over the world….we are one big family and we miss you guys and our party’s/shows that pull us all together. It is hard to describe, but we know that you know we know you know?

4) People have long been asking for the B-Sides album, with a few songs specifically being asked for………this is next on the list ….immediately after the new album comes out. A few of those songs should have been on records a long time ago. The ones who have complained…you have been heard! And we agree.

Sorry for being long winded….just been a while since we have posted news. We will try not to get so lost in the studio finishing the album ….and post more often!
If you made it to the end…post the city and country you are from … we can miss you’ll even more…..and to be honest motivate us to finish the new album faster and better…. and faster and better…. and faster and better…………

2017!!! Let’s PARTY!!
