On June 2nd, 2017, Authority Zero will drop their 6th full-length album. The album, titled Broadcasting to the Nations, is releasing via Bird Attack Records. The vets out of Mesa, AZ will celebrate their new album with an album release party on June 3rd at The Marquee Theatre in Tempe, AZ.
Authority Zero has been dishing out an adrenaline-filled mix of punk rock and reggae since forming back in 1994. The current lineup consists of Jason DeVore (vocals), Chris Dalley (drums), Mike Spero (bass), and Dan Aid (guitar). Authority Zero released their first album A Passage in Time in 2002, and since that time they’ve accumulated a global fan-base of punk and reggae-heads alike. The band has toured alongside heavyweight groups such as Pennywise, Sum 41, and Flogging Molly.
To record the upcoming album, AZ traveled to The Blasting Room Studio in Fort Collins, CO. The band holed themselves up in the studio for three and half weeks in order to perfect with the help of producer/drummer Bill Stevenson (of Black Flag/Descendents).
Jason DeVore explains the Authority Zero’s new material, saying, “It’s really going to be an exciting album. It’s a combination I think of ‘The Tipping Point’ (2013) meets the first album ‘A Passage in Time’ (2002). 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. We’ve done about 15 tracks and we’re debating if we are going to use all 15 or hold off on a couple for bonus tracks.”
