Fronted by Jules Altoé, musician since the age of 7 (she sings, plays guitar, bass guitar, keyboard and synthesizers), Brazil-based indie rock band The Zasters was formed when Jules met Na Sukrieh, multi-instrumentalist drummer, who had already played bass guitar and studied classical piano and tap dancing for many years (in addition to this, she is a very talented illustrator, who creates most of the band's arts). Together, they wrote and recorded the band's debut EP "This is a Disaster" (2017).

Rafa Luna and André Celkevicius joined the band afterwards. Rafa grew up in the hardcore scene of São Paulo and started playing guitar at the age of 11. He also has influences from blues and rock n' roll guitarists from the 70's. Rafa met Jules in 2016, after playing in some jam sessions with her, where they had almost instant chemistry (musical and personal). After a while, Jules invited him to join The Zasters. André and Rafa were longtime friends, and had played together in other bands, along with having a sparkling passion for the punk / hardcore movement. In 2020, André joined the group as a bass player with his influences of pop punk / emo.

Since Rafa's entry, the band produced videos for the following songs: Late Night Impressions and Awesome Dance Moves (both from This is a Disaster EP) and the singles Come See The Band (which figured 6 months on the Spotify editorial playlist "Indie Brasil") and Going Down (which was streamed on TV channels such as Music Box Brasil and Play TV).

The band is now releasing a second EP by the end of 2020, writting and producing the songs in isolation. After the pandemic, The Zasters is set to hit the recording studio and release their first full album, mixed by Math Bishop (who also mixed artists like The Killers, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Two Door Cinema Club, Elle King, Bad Suns).
