Authority Zero announce live album, tour with Voodoo Glow Skulls

Reggae-punks Authority Zero are setting themselves up for a busy 2012 (not to be confused with their busy 2011). Today, they announced a January 31st release day for their forthcoming live album “Less Rhythm, More Booze.” The album will be released via Fletcher Dragge’s Viking Funeral imprint.

Also, AZ announced a long run of tour dates with legendary act the Voodoo Glow Skulls. Their tour begins December 31st in Arizona, and runs through late February when it wraps up in Texas. Click here for the full rundown.

Here’s a statement from AZ frontman Jason DeVore on the double announcements:

We’re excited to be hitting the road with our good friends the Voodoo Glow Skulls for a tour around the US in early 2012. We did a trek together in 2011 and had a blast, so we’re back for round two. We’re also excited to release our second live album and DVD fittingly titled ‘Less Rhythm More Booze’ during this upcoming tour. On our first live album (‘Rhythm and Booze’), we completely re-wrote songs off of our first two albums and this time we rewrote tracks off of our latest two albums ‘12:34’ and ‘Stories of Survival’ in the same distorted manner. To record we just threw a big party in our hometown of Mesa, Arizona, let the good times roll, and captured the audio and video for a CD/DVD release.”

Authority Zero released their latest album, “Stories of Survival,” in June of this year, also on Viking Funeral.
