Bio

ZacTheLocust is a Punk/Rock band from South Wales, UK and are signed to SWND Records.

After years and years of writing songs, but never having the opportunity to turn them into anything but home recorded demos, Keryn Isaac felt it was time to call upon some musicians from the South Wales music scene and start taking things seriously.

Keryn Isaac began recording with John Harrison on drums. They began working on Keryns songs and demos were recorded at Channel View, Johns home studio setup.


March 2020 was booked for a studio session at Redrocks Recording Studio with Engineer and Producer Lyndon Price, but due to the Covid 19 outbreak this had to be put on hold.


Later that year between August and September, Keryn and John went to Redrocks recording studio in Pengam, South Wales. The music for 5 songs was recorded with Lyndon as recording engineer and producer. Vocals were recorded at John’s home recording set up as well as new songs. A band of musicians was put together but after a few line up changes, the guys parted ways soon after.


During 2021 more songs were written and recorded at Channel View. These will all be included on the album.


In April 2021 ZacTheLocust signed to South Wales Record Label SWND. October 2021 will see the band release their debut album with the label. “Years In The Making” is 10 songs of punk rock, some of which were written over 15 years ago.


From July 2021 onwards Dai Priday, Gavin Rees and Ashley Turner have joined ZacTheLocust and rehearsals will start with gigs lined up starting with a debut at The Swansea Fringe Festival in October.


Drawing influences from a wide variety of bands from Green day to Metallica, Blink 182 to Rancid, The Offspring to The Clash, Nirvana to Sum 41 and many, many more!! Zacthelocust’s sound is punk/rock with big chorus’s and melody.
