New Jersey aggressive folk, rock-indie group EdTang & The Chops releases Goodbye, Zen5, Sushi Dinner. This is a 9 track album that found the band teaming up with famed engineer Alan Douches (My Morning Jacket, Deer Tick, Sufjan Stevens).

EdTang & The Chops are an aggressive folk rock band from Asbury Park, NJ who have been making big waves with their 2013 release, "Goodbye, Zen5, Sushi Dinner". Fueled by the honest lyrics and rustic melodies of singer/songwriter EdTang, The Chops bring a gritty indie-rock edge that is continually compared to that of The Pogues, Chuck Ragan, and Frank Turner.
Known for the wild party atmosphere of their energetic live shows, EdTang & The Chops have officially brought back the barn-burner.

The band's current release "Goodbye, Zen5, Sushi Dinner", is, according to Tang "An introspective look into the line that separates the dates of a headstone...this is an album about hope, longing, and the waning twilight of youth."
