About Authority Zero
Authority Zero rose from Westwood High School during the mid 1990s punk scene. It was originally a project among Bill Marcks, J.W. Gordon and Jerry Douglas. The band simply picked up some instruments and started to make music without any concern for the norms in place for standard rock and roll. Later on, Jason DeVore joined the band and was able to offer catchy lyrics that complemented the rest of the group's instrumentation (along with the new addition of Jeremy Wood on bass). The first lineups iteration was born.
With DeVore writing the lyrics and Wood writing the bass lines, the band's sound was able to take shape in a unique punk rock way. Over the years, the band's lineup changed without affecting the overall skate punk sound. It was not until 2002 that Authority Zero got its big break when invited to join the Vans Warped Tour. It gave the band the opportunity to play alongside some of the popular bands of the time like Sum 41, Guttermouth and Everclear. At the 2000s hit, the band started to take on more and more of a political tone to its lyrics against war and other issues.
Now, the current lineup is Jason DeVore, Brandon Landelius, Mike Spero and Sean Sellers. This lineup continues to write music and tour with a global following.
Authority Zero Previous Hits
The band's first debut album is A Passage in Time. It was released almost an entire decade since the band formed. The album was released on Lava/Atlantic records and produced by Dave Jerden. It was immediately a hit and broke the band out into the mainstream by placing it on the national map. The band received praise from a number of key players and was often likened to Bad Religion, Blink 182, Sublime and Pennywise.
The next release was Andiamo on Lava records, featuring Ryan Green and Michael Happoldt. This album was unique in covering the song, "Mexican Radio." There were also a couple of hits off the album, "Revolution" and "Taking on the World." There were a couple more releases before the last one in 2013, The Tipping Point. This album was released on Hardline Entertainment and had a recognizable change in the direction of the previous releases. There were songs on the last album, like "No Other Place," "On the Brink" and "Endless Roads" that received accolades from fans and critics. After a significant number of years playing music, the band is definitely in a great place for eager fans to come out for a listen.
The Authority Zero Live Show Experience
Authority zero is a lively show that is most likely to see a pit and people swirling around in a circle to unleash their inner punk while the band plays. There will likely be no shortage of band tees, skate shoes and studded belts, so dig yours out of the closet and get to the show. It doesn't matter how long a punk band has been making music, the feel of the shows remain the same. In an interview with Amp Kicker, Jason Devore explained, "Everything around us inspires the music and keeps the motivation going. The kids at the shows, the emails, our families and just music in general. The only thing that really doesn't keep you motivated is the actual business side haha. It's been corrupt for years and makes things difficult to stay afloat as a constant touring band, but on the other side of the coin it (touring) is exactly what you need to do what you love and stay out there."
