The Zero’s are headed to Europe this spring to celebrate and release a European version of their 2010 album Stories of Survival. The boys of Mesa, Arizona will hit cities in Germany, UK, Poland, Greece, in celebration of the so-called bonus edition that straps six extra songs onto the twelve-track punk, ska, and reggae collection.
German-based Concrete Records will sponsor the European release for Zero trio, their second release of the year subsequent to a live acoustic album titled Less Rhythm, More Booze.
For fans in the US, we were told in our 2012 Most Anticipated Albums article, that Authority Zero’s next full length studio release will be sometime in June/July. Expected to be 13-14 new songs and here’s what Authority Zero’s front man Jason Devore told The Pier about the next studio album: “The new release will be our first in two years so expect a lot of intensity regardless of the style coming out, and the good old’ counter balance the ups and downs both musically and lyrically. We’re putting a lot of time and energy into this one and can’t wait to get it out.”
Authority Zero will be kicking off their tour in Germany when the album releases on 4/20 to Europe before ending on May 18th. Just in time to come back to the US for their next Studio Release!
