“‘The video to Death To The Holy marks a visual departure from our established aesthetic. A short and buzzing rumination on the question “What would happen if we get proof of God’s nonexistence?” Directed by Jen Ries, it perfectly matches the song’s urgency and relentlessness.’’

The widely praised, self-titled album is a masterclass in distilled rage. Recorded by Marc Obrist and Manuel Gagneux at Hutch Sounds, ‘Zeal & Ardor‘ was mixed & mastered by Will Putney at Graphic Nature Audio.
All songs were written and performed (except drums) by the multi-lingual Gagneux. Released in February 2022, the 14-track album is available digitally, as a digipack CD, and as a black vinyl, a white vinyl (indie exclusive), or a deluxe, gatefold, double black vinyl.
Zeal & Ardor hit the road in May/June 2022, as special guests to Meshuggah. Tickets are on sale now for the following shows, including an unmissable night in Dublins’ Olympia Theatre. Tickets on sale here.
