ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE – Debut New Song

New York/New Jersey crossover act ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE have unleashed their first new song in 15 years. The track, titled “Bullshit Destroyer,” will appear on the band’s upcoming EP, Life Without Pain is a Fucking Fantasy, set for release on August 9 through Innerstrength Records.
