"The people who come in are typically ones who are extremely excited about music as well, and a lot of the time, [we] know people before they join the group, so you already have that connection.

"We have incorporated a good deal of new songs into [the show]. We are trying to push a lot of the new album as well as get people excited about it, because we are excited about it. We're hoping to see that at the shows."
They plan to play plenty of classic tracks as well, spanning their entire discography, to appease longtime fans. After a detour across the Atlantic Ocean, Authority Zero is ready for the Copper State yet again.
