Zuli's Debut Album Out Via Swoon City 10/20; Pre-Order Now

On Human Freakout Mountain, the debut full-length album from emerging Long Island, NY based artist Zuli-known as Ryan Camenzuli-is set for release October 20 via Swoon City Music. The record has received early critical buzz from The Wild Honey Pie, who proclaim, "It's an ebullient release into an adrenaline-soaked, psychedelic dreamscape and an unexpected build into another realm" and FLOOD Magazine, who furthered, "It's a bright and strange trip, one that highlights both Camenzuli's inventiveness as an arranger and producer and his considerable strength as a melodicist."

Zuli's new single off the record, "blaze" debuts on Earmilk. Of his music, Earmilk says, "Zuli achieves a smooth blend of psych rock and pop, with the pop element comprised of both modern and romantic oldies-inspired melodies."

Recorded in Copake, NY and at Refuge Recording in Brooklyn, NY, the album's 10 songs-on which Zuli played most of the instruments-unite colorful, psychedelic textures with hooks and guitar-driven pop. It expands on 2015's EP Supernatural Voodoo but "goes deeper on every level," says Zuli. "The composition on On Human Freakout Mountain is more intricate, the harmonies more lush."

Following his post-high school stints playing music on the road, Zuli returned to Long Island to write and demo his debut, reconnecting with longtime friends in the process. He settled on the title On Human Freakout Mountain "because I felt the songs all connected to this period in life where everything was in limbo," explains Zuli. "You are still connected to your childhood but you need to make decisions that will potentially affect the outcome of your entire life." Many of the album's tracks were inspired by the stories of his closest friends' growing pains and life challenges.

Zuli is supporting the upcoming release with a string of U.S. dates including stops in Nashville, Chicago, Athens, St. Louis and more. See below for complete tour itinerary.
