UZZA is a Minneapolis-based band that have been performing around the Twin Cities since 2009. Formed by vocalist Tabatha Predovich and guitarist Rich Patterson, the band also includes bassist Geoff Maas and drummer Michael McDonald. Together they have three albums to their credit: “Samsara” (2012), “Maya” (2014), “Elysium” (2016), and an eight song EP – “Out of Sight” (2018). The band is currently working on their fifth release, tentatively titled "333". With the volume of material the band has compiled over the past two years, the title could very well refer to the potential running time of the album, but it's actually a reference to Tabatha's lucky number – and not, as some people have speculated, 'half evil'. Unfortunately, with all the tumult of late, we're not sure when live music will make a comeback. But when it does, we cannot wait to share our new music with you. We humbly submit that it's some of the best stuff we've ever done.
We just had out first rehearsal in months to resume writing and recording material for our next album – including this piece which was written during the quarantine. We recorded it in our basement rehearsal studio, then added some overdubs and effects. Rather than wait until the new album is released, we thought this demo was too relevant not to be heard right now.
We write and record a lot of music – most of it never sees the light of day. Given the global events of late we couldn't stop thinking about an abandoned demo called "The Last Days". The song was never finished but we're sharing it because if there's anything the world needs right now it's a brooding dirge about life as we know it coming to an end. Enjoy!
Local media outlet CCX News recently produced a segment about UZZA's involvement with MNSpin – Hennepin County Library's new music platform.
A musical token of gratitude for those who have and continue to support our band through the years (and even those who haven't). Enjoy – this one's on us!
