San Antonio has sort of become notorious for stealing band trailers. At least a few times a year, a photo of a trailer will pop up on our FB timeline with a caption explaining how some touring band came through SA and got their shit stolen. Though no trailers have been stolen this year (that we know of), back in the summer of 2015, while headlining The Summer Sickness tour with CounterPunch and Rubedo, Authority Zero’s tour van and trailer were stolen right here in the Alamo City.
The van and trailer were recovered a few days later, but was damaged and more than $50,000 dollars of music equipment and merchandise were stolen. The band, who formed back in ’94 carry that skate/punk sound similar to The Bouncing Souls, Pennywise and Millencolin, and are actually coming back to share their rapid guitar riffs, drum fills and catchy punk rock “whoaaaaa”s.
Let’s try not steal their shit this time, yeah? This is why we can’t have nice things. And Authority Zero, if you’re reading this, our bad.
