Register Your Band For a Chance to Open For Voodoo Glow Skulls and Authority Zero on Feb. 23!

There is still time to register for our battle of the bands for a chance to open for Voodoo Glow Skulls and Authority Zero! Deadline for submission is January 16, 2012 so be sure to register your band! For more information visit our event page or email asst@texashouseofrock.com.

With a long list of achievements, including seven albums and one million records sold, The Voodoo Glow Skulls are bringing their traditional ska, hardcore punk sound back to House of Rock with Authority Zero. The California based band stays true to their roots by mixing tough guitar rifts with the influence of Mexican music. They have been headliners and support for acts such as The Offspring, Green Day, No Doubt, and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, among others.

Authority Zero is a punk rock band out of Mesa, Arizona. They uniquely mesh punk rock with ska and reggae and have drawn comparisons to Bad Religion and Sublime. They have taken to the road with Sum 41, NOFX, Alkaline Trio, Punk-O-Rama and the Warped Tour and have released four studio albums. Their goal, since their founding in 1994, has been to create a sound that paid tribute to their punk rock forefathers, but not confined by the musical barriers that typically bound the genre together.
