Band releases mash-up video from their epic Tempe NYE show, calls for fan submissions for “Lift One Up” video.
Authority Zero – the reggae-infused punk band hailing from Mesa, Arizona – are releasing a mash-up video today that captures their annual New Year’s Eve performance at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, AZ. The band is also calling for submissions for their next video for the single “Lift One Up.”
Shot by collaborator Randall Record, the New Year’s Eve video depicts the special guests, set lists, and other surprises that the band had in store for their fans. To make things interesting, the band dubbed the show a “whiteout-blackout” party complete with glow in the dark paint and black lights, and performed their debut album A Passage In Time from front to back for the first time in over a decade.

Additionally, Authority Zero is calling for submissions for their next video. Starting today, the band is accepting fan-made “shake face” videos and other slow motion footage for inclusion in the music video for the song “Lift One Up,” the latest single off their 2013 release The Tipping Point (Hardline Entertainment). Like the song, the video will be a celebration of their global community of fans.
Lead singer Jason DeVore explains: “After hinting on Facebook that we are highlighting our fans in our next video, we got an overwhelmingly positive response. We had people from all around the world offering to do things above and beyond our expectations. Luckily, we are only asking one simple thing: show us your ‘shake face.’ What is a ‘shake face’ you ask? Pretty much what it sounds like: slow motion footage of you erratically shaking your face from side to side for 5-10 seconds.”
In addition to “shake face” videos, the band will also consider all other slow motion footage. “Get creative and have fun with it,” DeVore explains. “We’ll consider anything that’s in slow motion – from your grandfather, skate tricks, a wet dog, bungee jumping, you name it. So long as its in slow motion, it will be reviewed for inclusion in the video.”
Here’s how fans can submit their footage:
Find the highest quality camera you can (the iPhone 5s has a killer one, Go-Pro, etc. – whatever you can find).
Film yourself for 5-10 seconds in slow motion shaking your face erratically from side to side. (Here’s an example of what we mean.)
Get creative and have fun with it. As long as its in slow motion, it will be considered.
Email footage to firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, February 1st 2014.
Include your name and home state/country.
