July 2012 Dates Announced
Authority Zero Announce Headlining Tour With Versus The World (ex-Ataris, Lagwagon)
Authority Zero have announced the dates for their upcoming tour throughout July with Versus The World, which features ex-Ataris bassist Mike Davenport and Lagwagon guitarist Chris Flippin. Authority Zero are gearing up for the release of their new studio album later this year through Viking Funeral/Suburban Noize.
“We just returned home from a month long European tour with our new label mates Verses The World. I’d never met the guys before, but Sean had through past Good Riddance tours with Lagwagon and Ataris so they already had a pretty good connection. We hit it off really quick and the tour was just sick,” said Authority Zero‘s Jason DeVore. “We all had such a good time we figured why not do it again back in the States and keep it rollin’!”
Authority Zero are touring in support of their new live album “Less Rhythm More Booze” which was released on Viking Funeral Records and is available at iTunes. Authority Zero‘s ‘Less Rhythm More Booze’ is a two disc CD/DVD set that captures the group’s sold-out hometown show on an 18 song live CD and a 70 minute DVD.
Versus The World’s new album, “Drink. Sing. Live. Love.” is due out July 31st on Viking Funeral. The album finds the band at their best, combining years of experience and honed ability to craft incredible songs. Produced by Thom Flowers (The Ataris) at Playback Recording and Orange Whip studios in Santa Barbara, mixed by Ian MacGregor (All American Rejects, Katy Perry) and mastered by Jason Livermore at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Drink. Sing. Live. Love. features thirteen fist pumping tracks that fuse elements of post-hardcore, pop-punk and rock on tracks like “She Sang The Blues”, “Mason Grace” and the upcoming single “A Fond Farewell.” Versus The World’s new album, “Drink. Sing. Live. Love.” is available for pre-order online at Interpunk.
“We want everyone to know that after two years of hard work, our new album Drink. Sing. Live. Love. is coming out July 31st on Viking Funeral Records,” says Versus The World‘s Mike Davenport. “This is the most exciting album I have been a part of since the release of The Ataris’ record “So Long Astoria”. Please check out the album and check us out on tour this July with our friends and label mates Authority Zero. We both have just returned from a great European tour and are ready to take on America.”
