THE UNORTHODOX REVIVAL is now complete! The final track PATHWAY is out now! close ×


Los Angeles, CA – VI·ZA is excited to announce the release of the group’s tenth new digital song release for 2017-2018. Following the online releases of “Viktorious”, “Cash Karma”, “Velvet Shade”, “A World of Broken Mirrors”,  “Aphrodite”,  “Vicious Game”,  “Pinches”, “Sheep” and “Diabolic Angel” amidst acclaim and the anticipation of a loyal fan base, “Dancing Twig” has now arrived for listeners to enjoy a melodic adventure of music and art.


“This song came to me as I wondered about what it would be like to play a melody on my oud with a cartoon of a small dancing twig moving to the music,” said theoudplayer Andrew Kzirian. “The song has an interesting vibe and touches on some of our group’s folky and harmonious sensibilities. It was an exciting journey to put this song together with all the guys – and kudos to K’noup for his excellent as always vocal work collaboration with me,” he added.


After returning to the stage in early 2017 the band has been writing and recording actively the past several months, concentrating on composing new material as the band enters a new chapter of its growth. The band is excited to close the book on its first 6 releases, which has been compiled as a new EP named “The Unorthodox Revival: Volume I”. VI·ZA is continuing to write and record a next batch of 6 tracks, which will populate the second volume of “The Unorthodox Revival” series. Subsequent songs – such as the recent April 1, 2018 release of “Diabolic Angel” – will follow the same monthly digital release format. The band continues to record with talented recording engineer Yury Anisonyan out of Live Wire Studios in Los Angeles. Anisonyan brings his expertise and unique mixing philosophy to VI·ZA’s sound, creating a unique tapestry of soundscapes.


Each new song will be released on VI·ZA’s dedicated YouTube channel at




VI·ZA’s new material is an exploration of sounds both old and new, and is sure to pique the interest of both diehard fans and new listeners. With vocals and a diverse array of instruments like the oud and duduk to combine with guitar, bass and drums, there are some exciting possibilities when it comes to both the core and potential artistic horizon of the band’s sound. Song titles include “Cash Karma”, “Viktorious”, “A World of Broken Mirrors”, “Aphrodite”, “Velvet Shade” and “Vicious Game”, “Pinches” and “Sheep” representing diverse but resonant themes ranging from satire, continuity and social commentary to raw human emotions like love, loss and passion. Whether it’s VI·ZA’s bread and butter energetic style of pulsing percussion with exotic melodies or experimental ideas exploring the spiritual side of their art, the guys promise to keep things interesting with fans coming back for more, especially when it comes to documenting their work in the studio.


Keep an eye out for the band on Facebook ( and Instagram (@vizamusic).


After releasing several albums, performing at major festivals worldwide, joining System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian for two worldwide tours and supporting Gogol Bordello and Skindred, VIZA is looking to explore a new dimension of sound. As a fixture of the Sunset club scene known for energetic and captivating live performances, VIZA is sure to deliver excitement in the form of shows and new songs in 2018.

A dancing twig is before me.

Narrow eyes but it sees right into my soul.

Dancing twig won’t you show me.

You’ve come around and you won’t let me let go.


Dancing twig are you crazy?

All those thorns so you cut me la la la.

I’ve gotta ask do you love me.

You’ve turned around and left me here alone.


Staring into the sky you’re all I want.

Dancing twig won’t you love me?

Thinking how I can ask this of you.

Write me a song and we’ll sing.


Show me the gold I’m your king.

Put out my hand kiss this ring .

You are the yang to my yang.


Dancing twig what’s the story?

You’ve worked me up and I don’t know what to do.

Dancing twig you’re so lonely.

And it’s time to unplug this show for good.


Staring into the sky you’re all I want.

Dancing twig won’t you love me?

Thinking how I can ask this of you.


Write me a song and we’ll sing.

Show me the gold I’m your king.

Put out my hand kiss this ring .

You are the yang to my yang.
