Phoenix New Times Soundcheck 2012

Jason Devore of Authority Zero is going to be a busy dude for the next couple months.

Not only is Authority Zero on tour with the Voodoo Glow Skulls, but the band is prepping the release of a new live album, Less Rhythm More Booze. The band is playing a special release gig at The Roxy Lounge on Monday, January 30.
