With their second release of 2020, Tick Tock, the Swedish hardrocking band Zitter, proves to be as creative as ever. The eight new tracks, mix B Gustaf's fuzzy guitars and Fred Z's heavy bass with software instruments, creating Zitter's special brand of hardrock with a punkish edge. The heaviness of the title track Tick Tock is amplified by synthetic sounds. In the catchy One Step Closer, Holiday 2:020 and the punkish Acthung, the melody lines areproduced by software trumpets and accordion. The ballad Turn the Page, is built around the piano, while Reach Out a Hand is a composition, built up around software instruments. The groovy Fire and Log Out get their special flavor with the help of soundscapes.

This time around, the lyrics spans from the autobiographical to global threats. Regardless of the lyrical content, the singer and bassist Fred Z, performs the lyrics with the same conviction. The software drummer Macalico Adee delivers no vocals, but gives character to the songs with beats that will make your body move.

After a brief sojourn into the metal galaxy with the 2019 release droppeD, Zitter returned to their self-proclaimed vultureistic beak n' roll machine music sound with their previous release We are the Vultures (2020). During 2020, Zitter also released their first single with Swedish lyrics, Pantarkungarna, a tribute song to the crazy characters in Hard Steel, the brainchild of the Swedish horror-comedy filmmakers Rotten Soulz.

Tick Tock is a digital only release on the band's own label Vulture Nest Productions, distributed worldwide by Kobolt (AWAL Digital Limited).

Zitter's music is represented on collection discs released by the American record label 3000Records, on the DVD Cowabunga Extravagance (SevenFilms) and in several movie productions and videos made by Rotten Soulz from UmeƄ, Sweden. Several songs from droppeD and We are the Vultures got rotation on internet-based radio stations around the world.

The live performance of Personal Hero at Chinateatern, Stockholm, Sweden, in 2008, is Zitters most popular video on YouTube. The performance took place during a charity show to raise money for the research about the chronic disease cystic fibrosis.
