Z.O.A is a Japanese rock band formed in 1984. Band leader Seiichiro Morikawa founded “MORE records” (now Grand Fish/Lab) sometime around ’82, before then focusing solely on the band, which then went on to release the self-titled 12-inch “Z.O.A” in ’86 after several changes in lineup. Guitarist Shinji Kuroki joined the same year, after which Z.O.A released four more albums. The group was mainly active between 1986 and 2000.
They are still active today, playing only a handful of shows in the interim.
Z.O.A is currently Seiichiro Morikawa (vocals), Shinji Kuroki (guitar), Takahito Shinohara (bass), and PAZZ (drums). This has been the lineup since ’89. In 2019 the band release the CD “Six Tracks”, produced by Atsuo of Boris.
