Count Your Lucky Stars have announced the signing of Zookeeper, the solo project of Chris Simpson, best known for his work fronting Mineral and The Gloria Record. The label will release Zookeeper’s second LP, ‘Pink Chalk‘, in mid August. Zookeeper’s return shouldn’t be overshadowed by the reunion of Mineral- a band who played a pivotal role in bringing emo into the mainstream in the mid to late nineties. Indeed, the two are very different animals, and while Mineral may bask in the warm wave of nostalgia, Zookeeper is still Simpson’s most evocative and mature outlet. So, don’t go looking for any rehashing here, Zookeeper is not Mineral or The Gloria Record. Stay tuned for new music shortly.
