Authortiy Zero – “Today We Heard The News”
“The Tipping Point” Background:
Named after the Malcolm Gladwell book, The Tipping Point was recorded with producer Cameron Webb (Pennywise, Social Distortion, Motorhead) at Maple Studios in Orange County, California. Their latest effort pays tribute to their punk rock forefathers while expanding their musical boundaries into unconventional reggae and rock tinges beyond the typical punk rock aesthetics, creating a whirlwind rock album that will undoubtedly take listeners by storm.
Here’s what vocalist Jason Devore had to say about the song:
“This song is very dear to my heart. I was at my house working on the new Authority record and I went on line to find out that Tony Sly of No Use For A Name had unexpectedly passed away. It instantly struck a nerve and I just started writing. No Use was one of the first bands we’d ever toured with back in 2001. It made me start thinking of the good times we had on the road and how at any given moment (as with many other musicians who have passed on early) it can be taken from you in an instant. There’s always that possibility that you may not make it home, so don’t take anything in this life for granted”
The album will be released April 2nd via Hermosa Beach based indie label Hardline Entertainment (US/Canada/Japan), Concrete Jungle (Europe/UK) and 3wise Records (Australia). Fans are invited to pre-order the album beginning today at www.HardlineEnt.com/store; Everyone who pre-orders the album will have the chance to win a custom limited edition Authority Zero guitar skate deck or drum head.
Authority Zero Background:
With five studio albums, two live acoustic albums, and two EP’s, the Mesa, AZ based Punk Rockers have been bracing the music industry for close to two decades with their unique & original mix of Punk, Rock & Reggae. After experiencing 18 years performing, the group has seen their share of ups-and-downs with line up changes at guitar & drums. At this point many bands may have folded under the pressure and set backs, but the group marched on inviting new recruits solidifying their line up. With their 12 track, fifth studio album The Tipping Point, Authority Zero is determined to carry on with perseverance and dedication to spread their music and message to fans around the globe.
Starting in April, the group will be on tour hitting Europe, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Austria, Italy & More. Check the dates and let your friends over in Europe know Authority Zero is coming!
