Produced by Descendents’ Bill Stevenson at the legendary Blasting Room Studio (Rise Against, Hot Water Music, NOFX) the album was recorded over a period of three and a half week and promises to deliver for punk rock, reggae and ska fans in equal measure.
Commenting on the release vocalist Jason DeVore said: " It’s a combination I think of The Tipping Point [released in 2013] meets the first album A Passage in Time. It’s really taking a step back to take a step forward—in the sense that you get a little more of what you feel like a lot of the kids that have been around for a long time have been missing out on a little bit, I think. There’s also some stuff on there that some people won’t have heard before I think as well… they’ll be like ‘that’s what band again?’ There’s a couple of surprises on there too that might throw people back a little bit—but in an exciting way. I’m pretty excited man.”
Formed in 1994 the band released their debut album A Passage in Time in 2002, the band’s career gained momentum quickly and they’ve since spent their fair share of time on the road, having toured extensively with such acts as Pennywise, Sum 41, Flogging Molly and many more. In recent years Authority Zero has gained momentum internationally, spending time on the European festival circuit as well as stints in Japan, Australia and even Russia. They’ve released a total of 5 full-length studio albums (most having seen spots on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart), and their music has been featured in numerous video games, tv shows and movie soundtracks throughout the years. The band’s many successes have been accompanied by a few bumps in the road (as to be expected for any group that’s been around over two decades) including a slew of line-up changes, music industry letdowns, and most recently having their van, trailer, and equipment stolen while on tour in Texas. Their secret to the longevity is simple: keep it pure and believe in your music.
To coincide with the announcement, the band have also released a behind the scenes video where they speak about the making of the new record. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/
