About Authority Zero

Hailing from Westwood High School, Authority Zero burst onto the punk scene in the mid 90's as the project of Bill Marcks, J.W. Gordon, and Jerry Douglas. In true punk fashion the band picked up their instruments and started playing, eschewing typified elements that the rock scene had normalized such as bass and, for a while, lyrics. Eventually the band would be joined by Jason DeVore, whose catchy lyrics meshed well with the band's sound, and along with bassist Jeremy Wood, the first full incarnation of Authority Zero was born.

DeVore's lyrics and Wood's innovative basslines would round out Authority Zero's hectic sound, creating a truly unique punk sound that borrowed from various genres while simultaneously being something wholly unique. The band would lose and gain various members over the years, but the signature Authority Zero sound would carry on through personnel changes and hard times. Their music has also remained a dynamic and freeflowing art form, borrowing elements from all elements of punk, including skate punk, surf rock, and ska punk, and even bothering from genres as far as reggae.

The band's big break came in 2002, and they quickly took to the road with likeminded performers on the famed Vans Warped Tour. They would also get exclusive spots touring alongside musical greats such as Sum 41, Guttermouth, and Everclear. In true punk fashion, the band's music took on political overtones during the early 2000s in response to the second Iraq war.

The band is still hitting the road hard, and is consistently writing and recording new material. Though they've faced several departures of key personnel, the spirit of Authority Zero has lived and is clearly demonstrated in their most recent 2013 release. The band has built a worldwide following, having tour dates not just in the United States but across the pond and beyond, including all around Europe and Russia.

Previous Hits

The band's debut album A Passage in Time dropped in 2002, after a nearly decade buildup from the formation of the band. Released on Lava/Atlantic records, the album would be recorded under the tutelage of producer Dave Jerden and be an instant breakout success, putting Authority Zero on the national map and expanding upon their already loyal and budding local fanbase. Various music critics, on and off the mainstream, heaped praise upon the album, describing them as a zen blend of Bad Religion, Blink 182, Sublime, and Pennywise.

Their politically charged and much anticipated followup Andiamo would again drop on Lava records, but feature producer credits by well knowns Ryan Greene and Michael Happoldt. The album contained popular hits, including a well known cover of the song "Mexican Radio", and originals "Revolution" and "Taking on the World".The album would garner three and a half stars from media critic Allmusic, and cemented the band's position as a punk influence.

The band's most recent album The Tipping Point dropped in mid 2013, and was a pointed departure from their earlier work with heavy melodic reggae tones. WIth hits like "No Other Place", "On the Brink" and "Endless Roads", The Tipping Point as an immediate crowd favorite that garnered both commercial and critical success.
