Aeon Zen are excited to announce the introduction of a new band member into their ranks: Alistair Bell. Alistair takes over the lead guitar position from Matt Shepherd, who has left the band on good terms after making the decision to focus on his family life.
Alistair Bell comments:
"Hi guys, my name's Alistair Bell and I'm the new lead guitarist in Aeon Zen.
I've been extremely busy writing solos for the upcoming record and as a part of this video, here's a sneak peak as what to expect.
I'm very excited and pleased to be joining Aeon Zen. I can't wait to meet the fans, and also can't wait to start playing gigs and festivals. The new material is significantly heavier than any of the previous albums, it's fantastic. So we'll hopefully see you out on the road!"
Aeon Zen are currently hard at work on their next album, due for release later this year. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, you can see Aeon Zen live, headlining the Sunday night lineup on the Jack Daniels stage at the Resonance Festival in Balham, England. Many other worthy prog and metal bands will be present during this 4 day festival.
They will also be playing at Tech-Fest, another 4 day festival, in mid-July.
