Authority Zero have announced a bunch of tour dates for the remainder of 2022. Things kick off with the band’s long-delayed return to Europe and the UK, with dates kicking off July 14th in Hamburg, Germany. They will be playing in the US, don’t worry. They will celebrate their 20th anniversary with a hometown show on September 9th Mesa AZ. Plus, they will be playing Brooklyn on September 21st and in Philly the next night. There’s a lot more happening so read below.

Of the upcoming European tour, frontman Jason Devore says:

“After a two plus year painstaking break, we are overwhelmingly ecstatic to get back across the pond to bring our latest record and show to the European fans and music lovers. We’ve been caged up a bit too long so we plan to play each show as if our first and last.”

The AZ crew will then return to the states to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their first album, 2002’s ‘A Passage In Time,” with a hometown show at Mesa, AZ’s The Nile Theatre on September 9th.

Devore says of the anniversary show:

“This has unequivocally been the journey of a lifetime. Our album “Passage” turning 20 years of age is something of a time capsule. Ingrained within are so many moments and memories not only in our lives as the songwriters and performers, but in the lives of our fans. All those who have been there every step of the way, or even in and out along the way, to commemorate and celebrate the music and moments from then to present. We wanted to bring the music and the show back home to one of our original stomping grounds in the heart of Mesa Town where it all began. That place being The Nile Theatre where the band was essentially born and raised.”

In September, the band kicks off the Northeast leg of its ‘Good Company Tour’, which runs from September 15 to October 1st, and includes stops in Canada.

“When you get the opportunity to tour the East Coast, make a few stops back up into Canada for a couple of rad Festivals with some good friends, and make some noise after far too long, well it just doesn’t get any better than that,” says Devore. “We’re so stoked to bring the “Good Company Tour” back East and looking VERY forward to tearing it down with the East Coast Zero Crew!”

Authority Zero’s ‘Ollie Ollie Free’ Japan Tour follows from November 11- November 19, which features support from many of the band’s friends.

Devore says:

“Nihon! We’re coming for you! Japan is and always has been one of our all-time favorite countries to tour. With our Japanese family Caffeine Bomb, Hey-Smith, Dizzy Sunfist and the Japanese fans in tow every step of the way, it will undeniably be a tour to remember. Not only will we be supporting our latest record “Ollie Ollie Oxen Free”, but we will also be celebrating our 2002 record “A Passage In Time”’s 20th anniversary at one of our final shows playing it front to back. Bring the noise Japan and let’s get Psycho! Psycho!”
