Zero Progress (and crew) self-released their latest record, “The Void”, today. The 7 inch is the second record from the Bay Area hardcore band that features all straight edge members.
The record comes as a follow up to the bands “Derailed” 7 inch and U.S. tour last summer. “The Void” has eight songs of clear-minded hardcore punk with 200 out of the 500 printed coming on clear vinyl. With label art that says “STAY PUNK” and “BE YOURSELF” and a back cover featuring a skinhead, punker, and youth crew kid — the band makes their message and intentions clear.
The record is available to buy for five dollars through the store section of this website. It is also free to download by simply clicking HERE.
An early listener of the record, writer, and artist had this to say about the new record when comparing it to past Zero Progress material:
Hey Zero Progress,
Congrats on a fine collection of work. Will and I were listening to it in my car and I kept having the urge to drive 95. It’s a little like your old record, but without losing a penny of credibility. I love the new control of feedback, the beautiful uberkill of vocals, the jackhammer bass, the precision drums, the unstoppable forward motion. I also love the use of one chord in an extended phrase, and the more interesting guitar segues here. We were listening to ‘whole’ — what an intro — both super-powered and sublime. “Searching for my soul?” Sounds like you’ve been doing some intense thinking. This is a part of any band’s evolution.
