Zeal & Ardor will premiere an official video for song ‘Death To The Holy’, taken from their newly released, self-titled, third album. The video will debut on the band’s YouTube channel at 8pm GMT. The band have posted a short teaser clip, featuring an astronaut, on their Instagram here.
Frontman Manuel Gagneux comments, “‘The video to Death To The Holy marks a visual departure from our established aesthetic. A short and buzzing rumination on the question “What would happen if we get proof of God’s nonexistence?” Directed by Jen Ries, it perfectly matches the song’s urgency and relentlessness.’’
From 8pm GMT, watch ‘Death To The Holy’ here. Fans can set a reminder now on the channel at that link and join in the accompanying live chat while they wait.

The widely praised, self-titled album is a masterclass in distilled rage. Recorded by Marc Obrist and Manuel Gagneux at Hutch Sounds, ‘Zeal & Ardor’ was mixed & mastered by Will Putney at Graphic Nature Audio. All songs were written and performed (except drums) by the multi-lingual Gagneux. Released in February 2022, the 14-track album is available digitally, as a digipack CD, and as a black vinyl, a white vinyl (indie exclusive), or a deluxe, gatefold, double black vinyl.
Other recent videos from Zeal & Ardor include ‘Run‘ (director: Garrick J. Lauterbach) and ‘Golden Liar‘ (director: Max Carlo Kohal).
Zeal & Ardor return to the UK in May/June 2022, as special guests to Meshuggah. Tickets are on sale now for the following shows, including an unmissable night at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
