Go Back to the Zoo, also known as GBTTZ is a Dutch indie rock band, formed in Nijmegen by the two brothers Cas (vocals) and Teun Hieltjes (guitar), and Bram Kniest (drum). After they moved to Amsterdam, they met Lars Kroon (bass guitar) waiting in queue for a concert of The Strokes.
In 2008, the group self-released their eponymous debut EP. This record was produced by Torre Florim, lead singer of another Dutch rock band, De Staat. Their single ‘Beam Me Up’ was used by Nike for a worldwide campaign and after that, things went crazy. Go Back to the Zoo got signed to Universal Music and in May 2009 ‘Beam Me Up’ was released as their first official single. In December 2009 they released their second single ‘Electric’ with a video which features the bandmembers as musical transformers.
On Friday, the 13th of August 2010, Go Back To The Zoo released their debut album called Benny Blisto.
'Beam Me Up' was re-released in 2011, after it was used in the promotion video a new season of the TV serie Californication
