Founded in the doom and gloom of the Pacific Northwest by duo Allison Green and Topher Walberg, The Black Doors hypnotize audiences as a well-oiled machine fueled by unbridled passion. Heart dragging lyrics and siren song melodies pour the foundation for a heavy haunted house built to last. Like a succubus draining the life force from the bodies of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Love and Rockets, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Kills, The Black Doors leave no doubt in their deft resurrection of the dark side of rock ‘n roll.
Well established in the North American music scene for over a decade, Green and Walberg have recorded, performed and toured with members and bands such as The Dandy Warhols, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Mercury Rev, The Warlocks, Ape Machine, Swoon 23 and Sunset Valley. Proficient writers and performers, The Black Doors continue to unlock passages between familiar and innovative sounds.
Aura Zorba released their label debut, ‘The Sweets Of Mars’ on Shore Dive Records in 2020. Drenched in retro psychedelic cohesion, Zorba quickly follows up with 2021’s ‘Glitter Days Are Gone’, taking a shift into glam and space rock with subtlety. They’ll be returning to the stage this summer (w/ Black Doors, The Stronks) to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Highly Evolved by the Vines to the date. Originally released July 14, 2002, Aura Zorba will be playing the whole album with a full band.
