Punk rock band Authority Zero debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The veteran Mesa, AZ-based band debuted the video for its new single ‘Ah Hell‘ on Wednesday. The video combines footage of the band performing its new single in a sound stage setting with shots of a female lead dealing with what appears to be some emotional stress, working her way through her situation through the use of art.
Front man Jason Devore explained the song’s concept in a recent interview, saying it is meant to encourage people to stand up for themselves.
“‘Ah Hell’ is a ‘well, why the f*** not’ in life scenario,” Devore said. “Idealistically, it stems from when I was a kid. A lot of the older teenagers and younger kids that looked up to them would all go and ride BMX in a small town I lived in. The area we went to had a giant dirt bowl, killer terrain and one big wicked kicker (jump) at the bottom. One day, the teens pressured this little kid by bullying him into flying down the hill to make the jump and fit in. End result, the kid did a double back flip unintentionally and ended up landing on his face, shattering all his teeth and bone structure. All that said, the idea the final result is to stand up for yourself, don’t give in to pressure or bullies, take chances, but also take things at your own pace and do what you feel is right for you.”
‘Ah Hell’ is taken from Authority Zero’s latest full-length studio recording persona non grata, which was released Nov. 22 via Concrete Jungle. the album is streaming now via Spotify and Apple Music.
It can be purchased on vinyl now here.
