A Mexican rock band, thats not not afraid of experimenting, with a modern sound, an eclectic style, some British influences & overall, their musics sophisticated without loss of rock energy. Their lyrics cover many subjects / feelings, with the same level of sophistication that their music shows, plus honesty. They usually write songs in Spanish, sometimes in English or a combination of both languages.
They began as a band in 1994; as time went by, the band changed members several times until the definite lineup stuck in 1997 with Len Larregui (vocals and guitar), Sergio Acosta (guitar), Beto Cabrera (drums), ngel Mosqueda (bass) and Chucho Bez (keyboards). Then the band made a demo and many gigs on their own with the little resources that they had; with all that, Zoe began to call the attention of the hispanic radio stations in the U.S. Later in 1998, Zoe signed a record deal with Sony Music Mexico and began making their first record in 2000; this album, self titled, came out and quickly became a favorite of the audience in Mexico; after that, the band performed songs in soundracks of movies such as Amar Te Duele, Ladies Night and The Dreamer.
Fast forward to 2003. Zoe, along with producer Phil Vinall (Placebo, Elastica, Pulp), recorded their second album called Rocanlover, which became more successful than the first one thanks to hit songs like Peace & Love and Veneno, which aired in several TV countdowns.
In 2005, after three years of working together, Zoe left Sony Music because of the lack of real interest that this record label had in them and signed a new deal with Noiselab; with a newfound belief in record labels, Zoe made an EP called The Room, which debuted at the top of the rankings in Mexico. This EP includes, among others, the song Dead (first single); also,are including She Comes and Morning Watts as new songs and also some remixes of Dead by great electronic artists from Mexico such as Sonido Lasser Drakkar or Los Dynamite, plus a couple of videos.
On July 12th, 2006; Zoe (now wih Rodrigo Guardiola in the drums) presented their more recent production, Memo Rex Commander y el Corazn atmico de la Va Lctea, a sophisticate, layered production, which tops several magazines rankings. Both Zoe and producer Phil Vinall worked very hard in Tornillo, Texas, a remote town in the desert, to get Memo Rex finished.
In fall 2006, Zoe headlined the Rockampeonato Tour, along with other Noiselab signees like Los Dynamite and Los Odio!, which held shows at cities like Mrida, Guadalajara and many others. This is the biggest tour Zoe has been a part of since they were formed.
In 2007 Zoe recorded 281107, a live album that celebrates their first 10 years as a band, it was recorded on the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City, this recording went platinum pretty quickly which is something unusual for live recordings in Mexico. On November 11th 2008 Repileptric Zoe's seventh studio album was released.
