Biography

Zack is a drummer hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Having over a decade of playing under his belt, touring the world with his band PUP several times over, and opening for acts like The Hives, The Menzingers, AFI, Billy Talent & Fucked Up, his trajectory shows no sign of easing up. And now, with a third record in the bank, after already having released two critically acclaimed records produced by studio legend Dave Schiffman (Mars Volta, The Bronx, Haim, Weezer, Adele, Red Hot Chili Peppers), PUP will soon be ready to take the world by storm once again. He is an individual as interested in minutia as he is the greater picture - and is poised to never slow down. Zack is most certainly obsessed with every musical process. If he’s not being blindsided by PUP’s already demanding schedule, Zack enjoys playing, recording and writing music at home, as well as plenty of touring with a variety of musical projects. See you on the road!
