Thanks to everyone who came out to our concerts. We had a great time! This is a nice review from our concert at INNTöne Festival in June:
“…their flawless interaction breathes a vitality that leaves the audience begging for encores until the repertoire is exhausted. This is probably how immortality begins.“ (Passauer Neue Presse, LINK)
There will be lots of video-footage from our touring and rumors have it that there might be something like a short movie-series coming out as well. If you want to be updated about everything just send us a short mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you on our newsletter.

INTERZONE PLAYS BURROUGHS in China
Between September 4 – 8 our new theatre-performance INTERZONE PLAYS BURROUGHS will be premiered at the Fringe Festival in Beijing and the International Youth Experimental Arts Festival in Haikou.
It features the actor and speech-artist Christian Reiner as well as the INTERZONE Band.
The performance is based on the work of American writer William S. Burroughs and draws its inspiration mainly from his groundbreaking novel „Naked Lunch“. In a mixture between theatre, concert, reading and video-art INTERZONE PLAYS BURROUGHS combines Burroughs’ highly associative literature with the heat and energy of improvised Music and Jazz.
We’re finally presenting our debut album in Vienna!!!
Monday, May 27th – 8.00 pm
Planter’s Club (Zelinkagasse 4, 1010 Vienna)
Here’s a brand-new TRAILER:
Very very nice CD-review in “DIE ZEIT”:
BACK THAN IN TANGIER
“Just get out there and play.” A football trainer’s words to his team work just as well as a guiding principle for music. Do what you like, but do it well and do it differently every time. For instance Interzone, the trio led by 22-year-old Austrian trumpeter Mario Rom, just goes out there. And plays. Growly, gnarly, confident and nimble – a good formula. Time and again the interaction between bass, drums and trumpet reveals new layers: driving grooves and driven melody lines, references to 1960s jazz or the rhythms of Africa and the Caribbean, memories of pharmaceutically induced excesses, of tribulation and confusion, of journeys to musical worlds already long dead and forgotten by the time the three musicians first picked up their instruments.
Now, on the cover of Nothing Is True, they sit in the dimly lit chiaroscuro of Vienna’s Planter’s Club, itself a monument to colonial society. Three wild boys, marked by a life they couldn’t yet have lived, ready for anything. Mario Rom lights a match, making the center of the photograph a white point: Interzone is named for William S. Burroughs’ ecstatic convolution of prose, a work he completed during his time in Tangier, the brimming sensuality of which clearly served as a model for the trio. Burroughs’ milieu was the disturbed, rootless Tangier bohème of the 1950s; Mario Rom, the confidently propulsive bassist Lukas Kranzelbinder and drummer Herbert Pirker seize the chance offered by their youth and their distance from the epicenter of jazz: Nothing is true – literally, in this in-between world – but, it would seem, everything is permitted.
Recklessly and impetuously they break their trail, clearing away stylistic signposts, swinging, grooving, abruptly changing tempo; in short: playing, following wherever the energy leads them in the moment. Even Ornette Coleman’s bittersweet ballad “Lonely Woman” must bow to their whim in the end: Mario Rom and his comrades step on the gas, leave scratches and scars on the melody – and wrest from it, with this rough treatment, an undreamed-of power.
