Breakups are tough, but sometimes good things comes out of them. Nick Zammuto, co-founder and producer of seminal electro-collage duo the Books, knew the group’s time was up and ventured on to form a new four piece project, aptly titled, Zammuto. With bassist Mikey Zammuto, multi-instrumentalist Gene Back and Sean Dixon on percussion, Zammuto will head out on their first US tour this spring with lablemates Explosions In The Sky.
 
Grab a sense of their heady bass and synchronized chamber vocals on the track “F U C-3PO” off their debut album due out April 3 on Temporary Residence, LTD.
