Zero Down

With a Lifetime to Pay

Fat Wreck Chords

Zero Down is a standard pop punk band from Fat Wreck Chords. The first few songs are slightly slower than one might hope for in their punk juice, but the tempo picks up with “Going Nowhere.” After that, there’s a fifty-fifty mix alternating between up-tempo and not-so-up-tempo. To take the words of the band itself, “There’s a million more just like me…,” so if you’re looking to expand your pop punk collection or just support Fat Wreck Chords, pick this one up. Just don’t expect anything new.
