Frontman Christopher Roberts is one of Never Your Zero's most potent musical weapons with a versatility that allows him to shift from guttural screams to a haunting melodic chorus in an instant. Roberts is backed by an insanely tight rhythm section in drummer Clay Wise and bassist Matthew Gene, who power Never Your Zero's powerful sonic soundscape.
Wise's drumming style sounds like the thunderous attack of Vinnie Paul, and then mixed with Gene's thick bass style, which is reminiscent of a young Jason Newsted. Never Your Zero guitarist Darren Wise layers on some razor-sharp guitar riffs that will stick inside your head after the music stops blasting out of your speakers.
Never Your Zero's explosive live show has earned them support slots for national hard rock veterans Sevendust, Pop Evil, Saliva, Shamen's Harvest, Powerman 5000, Buckcherry, and countless others.
Having recently signed with Nashville-based, The Label Group, the band is currently wrapping up their debut album at NRG Studios in Los Angeles with producer Jay Baumgardner (Evanescence, Papa Roach, Drowning Pool).
With a full tour of the United Stats planned for late 2016, Never Your Zero are on the verge of breaking through with not just a great sounding record, but a fresh and honest belief that through real hard work comes true reward.
We all come from lower, middle, and upper class backgrounds in three different parts of the state, Terrell, Garland, and Greenville Tx. As people we are as different as night and day such as our choices in music and in life, yet we share some common core beliefs.
Alloy was formed in early 2008 when Thomas Mcdonald (Bass Player), brought an old friend of his from Terrell, Texas, Chas Eacret(Lead Guitar/ Lead Vocals) to a new jam spot in Thomas es home town of Greenville, Texas. Thomas had been jamming with Tony Welch(Drums), from Garland, Texas, for 2 years at Tony s house with a host of other good players. The next time Thomas ran into Chas he made sure to give'em an invite to check it out. Chas arrived one morning with a grin on his face and a bottle of whisky in his hand. After the three of us played for hours on end that day, we knew we had something that wasn't bad. Chas suggested that we form a band and play shows around town, so Thomas came up with a name and that was the beginning of Alloy.
