ZacTheLocust

ZacTheLocust is a Punk Rock band hailing from the Ogmore Valley and Bridgend in South Wales, UK. who have achieved much since normality has started to return as well as during the pandemic.

After years and years of writing songs, but never having the opportunity to turn them into anything but home recorded demos, Keryn Isaac felt it was time to call upon some musicians from the South Wales music scene and start taking things seriously.

Keryn Isaac began recording with John Harrison on drums. They began working on Keryns songs and demos were then recorded at Channel View, Johns home studio setup. March 2020 saw them booked for a studio session at Redrocks Recording Studio with Producer Lyndon Price, but due to the Covid 19 outbreak this had to be put on hold. Later that year though between August and September, Keryn and John went to Redrocks studio in Pengam, South Wales. The music for 5 songs was recorded with Lyndon as recording engineer and producer. Vocals were recorded at John’s home recording set up as well as other new songs. A band of musicians was put together but after a few line up changes, the guys parted ways soon after.

During 2021 more songs were written and recorded at Channel View and in April of 2021 Keryn signed ZacTheLocust to South Wales Record Label SWND and October 2021 saw the band release their debut album with the label and later saw the band perform a debut at The Swansea Fringe Festival in October of 2021.
