Zetra Enlist Serena Cherry of Svalbard for Otherworldly Single, "Starfall"

Zetra Enlist Serena Cherry of Svalbard for Otherworldly Single, "Starfall"

- By Ramon Gonzales

The track ushers in the debut self-titled campaign via Nuclear Blast Records due out this fall.

Alt metal, shoegaze, boundary pushing mystics Zetra have unveiled the first glimpse into their dreary, dreamy universe of ethereal extremity. Delivering the first single from the band's forthcoming, self-titled full length debut, The Wanderers teamed with Serena Cherry of Svalbard for the breathtaking single, "Starfall". 

Earning accolades that align the band with definitive artists ranging from Sonic Youth and Slowdive to Deafheaven and Alcest, "Starfall" ushers in the band's first outing via Nuclear Blast Records and follows their series of celebrated EPs including 2021's From Within and 2022's From Without and Sacred Songs - of which earned the duo universal praise. 

A masterful meld of goth aesthetic, delicate synth, layered instrumentation and otherworldly vocals, Zetra have been turning heads since their 2020 debut. On the latest showing, the tandem feature the additional dynamic of the powerful roar of Serena Cherry on a track that underscores the all consuming quality of the band's craft. 



Coding their announcement with the kind of mystique befitting the band, The Wanderers shared of the release, 

"The sky illuminates as the meteors begin their cataclysmic descent through the firmament.
The second chapter of our realisation emerges. The unveiling of our Opus 1, 'Zetra' continues.
We are united on this journey with the supernatural force that is Serena Cherry of Svalbard.
Begin to know."

The self-titled release slated for a September 13th release date will also feature the previously released, "Sacrifice" as well as collaborative tracks with Icelandic post-punk stalwart Sólveig Matthildur and goth-metal mastermind and Unto Others architect, Gabriel Franco. 

Additionally, Zetra are set to begin a pivotal supporting run, joining Ville Valo on his extensive Neon Noir EU/UK tour which begins April 4th and concludes May 10th with a finale in London. Zetra also have confirmed sets at both 2000Trees and ArcTanGent festivals later this summer. See the complete list of live dates below.
