Fates Warning Singer Ray Alder Reunites With Former Drummer Mark Zonder In A-Z

Fates Warning singer Ray Alder has reunited with the band’s former drummer Mark Zonder for a new project called A-Z. The group, which also features bassist Philip Bynoe (Warlord, Steve Vai), guitarist Joop Wolters (Steve Walsh, Simon Phillips), and keyboardist Vivien Lalu (Steve Walsh, Jordan Rudess), have already signed a deal with Metal Blade Records. Zonder commented:

“When we were looking for a deal, Metal Blade was number one on the list. First worked with Brian Slagel about 40 years with ‘Metal Massacre II’ and Warlord. No question that they do a great job and we are very excited and proud to be back at MB.”
