Mesa, AZ based punk rock royalty Authority Zero has managed to weather the music industry storm and endure living on the road away from friends and loved ones for almost 2 decades. With four studio albums under their belt, two live acoustic albums, and two EP’s, they appear to be just getting started. Over the past few years the band has broke ground internationally, beginning with shows in Japan, followed by performances at Belgium’s legendary Groezrock, Spain’s Resurrection Fest and UK’s Rebellion Fest amongst countless other European festivals. With tours through Russia and Australia in the works, Authority Zero continues to seek new destinations to spread their live show and music.
Since the beginning of the year, fans of the Supervillains’ live shows have noticed something different in the band’s personnel department. Long-time bassist (and production wizard) Dan Grundorf has permanently handed over the reins and bass duties to BJ Hall, the band’s long-tenured stage/guitar-tech and bus driver. While Dan’s prowess and stage chops will be missed, fans should be more than satisfied with the new addition of BJ. A talented musician with a lengthy resume in the Central Florida scene, he is most recently recognized as playing with Abandon The Midwest, one of the main support acts for the Supervillains (as well as being signed to their label Rah Rah Rah Records). The Florida natives have been spending the winter months hunkered down in the Sunshine State playing festival dates (Including the inaugural OkeechobeeFest, one of the biggest Florida festivals in recent memory) and prepping songs for a new record (their 9th overall) tentatively slated for a late-2016 release. Gravitating back to their ska-punk roots, fans of the band should be excited for an up-tempo throwback record that showcases the Supervillains’ knack for mixing it up while still including a few staple slow-burn reggae gems. Look for the band to work in some of the new tracks alongside of their fan-favorites as they plow their way across the country in 2016.
