Album Notes
In 2004, Heath Dupras stepped from behind the drums of The Washdown (Lookout! Records) to front his own band with ex-Pohgoh drummer Keith Ulrey.

The two built Tampa, FL’s Zillionaire around songs Dupras had written himself during his post-Washdown downtime. Dupras and Ulrey originally envisioned the project as a guitar-and-drums duo, but the layered, dynamic nature of the material quickly revealed a need to bring others into the fold. Enter longtime friends and fellow ex-Washdown band mates, Michael Waksman (guitar, vocals) and Bryan Bates (bass).

With the line-up complete and the additional songwriting skills of Waksman on board, the goal of the band became apparent… to make music on their own terms and at their own pace. Drawing influences from such mid-90's indie-rock acts as Versus, Seam, Polvo and Codeine, Zillionaire took their time (a year and a half to be exact) and crafted the debut they set out to make.

"Depthy and introspective, the CD mixes the moodiness and experimentation of contemporary post-hardcore with the glacial beauty of classic ahead-of-its-time '90s slowcore and elements from throughout the indie-rock spectrum" - Reax

"Zillionaire debuts with a brazenly 1990s slow flow appropriate for the coldest stretch of the year" - Pitchfork
