The Brooklyn hip-hop trio has positioned itself as a sort of rap game Misfits, trafficking in the sort of lo-fi recordings, horror-show imagery, violence and sinister energy that I'm sure a fellow dark soul like Glenn Danzig would appreciate. Along with its trap and EDM-obsessed tourmates, the Zombies offer a bit more of a throwback, hard-edged sound to the lineup — "Beast Coast," as they dub it. It's hard to tell how tracks like "Death," "Drug Parade" and "Thugnificense" will sound in the festival's mid-afternoon sun, but no doubt the Zombies will bring plenty of heat of their own.
