Zoli Téglás was born in Los Angeles, California and has been the main man of the melodic punk / hardcore band IGNITE since 1994. In 2000 he toured with the legendary The Misfits, and joined Pennywise in 2010 for 5 years, with whom he has recorded their “All or Nothing” album.
Being a supporter of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, he is also well known for his love of nature, enthusiasm for protecting the environment and especially saving pelicans. He formed the Pelican Rescue Team and sits on the board for many other non profit organizations.
He also appeared numerous times on screen including the Netflix series Spectral, Argo 2 and the upcoming 6th Terminator 6 movie, Dark Fate.
The new Zoli Band album Santa Monica was mixed and mastered by producer Frank Gryner (Rob Zombie, A Perfect Circle, Tommy Lee, Andrew W.K.) and features 12 new songs including the cover of “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” by The Smiths. It was written and recorded by an entirely new lineup for the band, consisting of well-known Hungarian musicians recruited by Zoli. Songs like “Dead Dog”, “Death or Liberty”, and “A Separate Place” also feature lyrics and songwriting by Nick Hill (ex-Ignite), Randy Bradbury (Pennywise) and Michael A. Magrann (of the Los Angelespunk rock hero’s CH 3). Zoli sings one song in Hungarian, performing his own version of famous Hungarian poet Sándor Petőfi’s poem in the album’s final song “Kocsmárosné”.
