The band are set to play at Moth Club on 28 May 2023.
Michael Imperioli, the actor who stars in the latest season of The White Lotus and is also known for playing Christopher Moltisanti in The Sopranos, has announced a new London show with his band Zopa. The trio – which is formed of Imperioli along with bandmates Elijah Amitin and Olmo Tighe – have been confirmed to perform on 28 May.
In July 2020, Zopa released their debut album La Dolce Vita, which they followed up with new single Red Sky in February this year. In an interview at the beginning of 2022, Imperioli detailed that Zopa was formed in 2006 but went on hiatus in 2013 before picking things up again in 2021. He also said that he originally met Tighe, who plays drums in Zopa, through a movie they were both cast in and was then introduced to Amitin, who Tighe knew from high school.
Speaking on their latest track, Red Sky, Imperioli said: “It’s a love song and a song that celebrates having the courage to be a true individual… It was a song that came together very quickly lyrically and musically and did not need so much working and crafting unlike most of the stuff I write. I took that as a good sign,” Imperioli tells us about the song, which takes lyrical inspiration from a quote by Ralph Ellison: “The individual is a minority.””
Zopa have played a handful of shows this past year including a date back in Februrary at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn and a set in Montreal on 25 August.
Imperioli stars as Dominic Di Grasso in the recently-released second season of Mike White’s HBO series The White Lotus. The cast for this latest instalment of the comedy-drama also includes Aubrey Plaza, Will Sharpe and Jennifer Coolidge.
