Biography[edit]

Before Joshua Mellody was active under the name Zomboy, he had an Electronicore project called Place Your Bet$, under which a self-titled demo album was released in 2010. Zomboy debuted in 2011 with the track "Organ Donor", which was released on Never Say Die Records Game Time EP.[4] His debut EP was in top 5 of the Beatport dubstep charts for over eight weeks.[5] At the end of the year, his music and remixes were licensed to compilations on labels like Warner and Ministry of Sound.[5]

In 2012, he released his second EP, The Dead Symphonic EP.[6] In March 2013, he released the single "Here to Stay"[7] featuring Lady Chann on No Tomorrow Records. In September 2013, his Reanimated EP was released in two parts, of which Pt. 1 was released on Never Say Die Records & Pt. 2 on No Tomorrow Recordings. His debut album entitled The Outbreak on Never Say Die Records was released in August 2014. 2016 saw the release of the Neon Grave EP, featuring four tracks; remixes of these tracks were released in an EP in early 2017.[8][9]

2017 also saw the release of an EP entitled Rott N' Roll Part 1 coinciding with a US tour; the remixes of this EP were released that November.[10][11]
