From the venue:Authority Zero has never been called “ negative. ” Even during a pandemic, they kept their collective chin up, put their heads down and wrote what could be called their career album. Set for release in June, Authority Zero ’ s album “ Ollie Ollie Oxen Free ” takes a line from hide and seek to encourage fans t o leave the COVID - 19 depression behind and celebrate life. During the pandemic, singer Jason DeVore saw families torn apart by political views and COVID - 19. Now that the divide has somewhat subsided, it ’ s time to come out and be yourself again. “ The phras ing in the title track stems from the idea of ‘ come out, come out, wherever you are, ’” says DeVore, who co - writes with bassist Michael Spero. “ It encourages a focus on the positive side of 2020, while still maintaining awareness of the hardships and detrim ent of it all. People have been trapped within themselves, depressed inside of their houses and otherwise. We ’ ve been separated both politically and mentally between the left and right, which is very apparent.
