The Zombies Planning to Invade the US Again in August

Lavid Photos/TCI ArtistsLate summer is the time of the season that The Zombies will return to the U.S. for a new tour leg.  The trek, which will visit cities on the East and West Coasts, is scheduled to kick off on August 6 in Fall River, Massachusetts, and is plotted out through an August 24 show in San Francisco.

Among the dates are three free performances that will take place August 13 in Massapequa, New York; August 21 in Santa Monica, California; and the aforementioned San Francisco concert, which will be part of the Stern Grove Festival.

Zombies frontman Colin Blunstone, who celebrated his 69th birthday on Tuesday, recently posted a lengthy message on his official Facebook page in which he talked about his and his band's busy year and their upcoming plans.  The singer noted that 2014 already has seen The Zombies mount tours of the U.K. and the U.S., while Blunstone also played series of solo shows in both countries in support of his new album On the Air Tonight.  He also reported that he and the band are beginning to focus on working on new music.

"Now we have new songs to write and learn for the next Zombies album and I've started collecting tunes for the next solo album too," he wrote.  "No peace for the wicked!!"
