Music News | By on Jul 7th, 2010

Authority Zero released their new studio album, “Stories of Survival”, on June 22nd through Viking Funeral/Suburban Noize Records (read my review here). This week, the album debuted on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart at #5 and #43 on the Top Independent Album Chart, making it the highest-charting album of the group’s career. You can also see the band live at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory on July 15th! Get your tickets here.

“With music like ours, it’s both baffling and a surprise that we’re #5 on the Heatseakers Chart, especially in this day and age, where records aren’t selling what they used to,” commented Authority Zero vocalist Jason DeVore. “We all want to thank our fans for sticking by us and supporting the band over all these years. We put a lot into this new album, so it’s cool to see fans and critics reacting to it with positive feedback.”

Authority Zero’s “Stories of Survival” marks the group’s fourth studio effort, as well as the return of original bassist Jeremy Wood and new guitarist Zach Vogel. “Stories of Survival” is also the first release for Viking Funeral Records, an imprint label founded by Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge, Ken Seaton of Hardline Entertainment and Suburban Noize Records.
