Film: Alex Carapetis Drums for ZANEROBE

Who the hell is Alex Carapetis? Alex is an Australian born drummer, hailing from Adelaide. One of his first gigs was playing for Aussie icon Jimmy Barnes, and when Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails scouted him to play for the world famous band, his drumming career was set in stone.

Alex now drums on tour for Julian Casablancas of The Strokes. We recently decked Alex out in the latest ZANEROBE gear, and filmed him going wild to a banging Deadmau5 track, and the result speaks for itself below! 

Alex wears our signature ZR logo tank (shop here) and the Buck leather jacket (shop here).
