A hurtling through a decade that can only be categorized as meteoric, KAYZO continues to stack his claim as the pioneer of the dance/rock crossover scene with the release of his third album, New Breed. Out on KAYZO’s own Welcome Records June 24th, the 20-track release is an aural assault that seamlessly blends the two genres in a way that is at once groundbreaking and familiar. Each track features artists KAYZO respectfully categorizes as ’the names of the future’ who help the Los Angeles-based DJ and producer intertwine the tracks into a controlled frenzy. Featured artists include Ghøstkid; Out; PhaseOne; Aaron Pauley; Banshee; Jiqui; ATLiens; Kamiyada+; Siiickbrain; Poorstacy; Bvlvnce; Blosso; Connor; Cray; De’Wayne; Kala; SpaceMan Zack, Seon.

“New Breed is about the next generation. The turning of a page. The continuing journey of KAYZO and the constant progression of evolution of my sound within the many layers of what makes me who I am, “ says KAYZO. “Pushing myself and others to continue blur the lines of what we know as dance music and what we know as rock. Meeting in this grey area of the two worlds and not knowing what side is what. New Breed is the shedding of the old and celebrating what’s to come.”
After winning Insomniac’s Discovery Project in 2012, KAYZO caught fire in the scene. His rework of Papa Roach’s “Last Resort” broke barriers between mainstream electronic and heavy metal. He’s performed at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Tomorrowland, and Lollapalooza alongside Alex Gaskarth, Knife Party, and Tommy Lee. Blazing a thriving home for rocktronic music, he launched Welcome Records in 2018. His debut album, OVERLOAD, carved shows in Southeast Asia and Europe that year. KAYZO’s explosive 2019 sparked a 15-track sophomore album, Unleashed, featuring Of Mice & Men and Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire. His Unleashed Live tour set off with Sum 41 drummer Frank Zummo across 12 North American cities. Recent songs like “Suffocate” (with Bad Omens) and “DOMINATION” (with Papa Roach and Sullivan King) have accumulated millions of plays.
Kayzo’s New Breed Tour launches July 02 in Portland, making stops in New York, Boston, San Francisco, Denver, and an Imagine Music Festival appearance in Atlanta.
