The Supervillains and Authority Zero
511 Starr Street
Corpus Christi, TX, 78401
The Florida-bred swamp rockers have been bending genres, partying hard, touring the world, and leaving tales of joy and destruction in their wake. Founded by high-school buddies and co-lead vocalists Dominic Maresco (drums) and Scott "Skart" Suldo (guitars), the Supervillains' patented harmonies and hooks have permeated through many scenes while managing to stay true to their collective roots. Huge, ground-moving bass lines provided by Daniel Grundorf with multi-instrumental solos and melodies from Tom "T-Rex" Moulton compliment the combo's penchant for formulating unique arrangements, drawing from a wide range of influences. Southern vocal harmonies accompany undeniable reggae beats, tasty ska rhythms, and all-out punk rock insanity from a band that truly resembles the cultural melting pot of their home state.

Mesa, AZ based punk rock royalty AUTHORITY ZERO has managed to weather the music industry storm and endure living on the road away from friends and loved ones for almost 2 decades. With four studio albums under their belt, two live acoustic albums, and two EP's, they appear to be just getting started. Over the past few years the band has broke ground internationally, beginning with shows in Japan, followed by performances at Belgium's legendary Groezrock, Spain's Resurrection Fest and UK's Rebellion Fest amongst countless other European festivals. With tours through Russia and Australia in the works, AUTHORITY ZERO continues to seek new destinations to spread their live show and music.
Initially their goal was simple; create a sound that paid tribute to their punk rock forefathers, but not confined by the musical barriers that typically bound the genre together. Now,18 years later, they have just wrapped on their fifth full-length studio album. Named after the Malcolm Gladwell book, The Tipping Point was recorded with producer Cameron Webb (Pennywise, Social Distortion, Motorhead etc.) at Maple Studios in California. Their latest effort pays tribute to their punk rock forefathers while expanding their musical boundaries into unconventional reggae and rock tinges beyond the typical punk rock aesthetics, creating a whirlwind rock album that will undoubtedly take listeners by storm.
