Zero Trust Release Video For New Single 'Birch'
The New York-based group Zero Trust are celebrating the release of their self-titled debut in partnership with Equal Vision Records. Zero Trust might be a new name, but they boast résumé credits spanning decades of the most creative, cutting-edge pockets of the area's storied Hardcore scene. With a lineup consisting of members of Coheed and Cambria, Bulldoze, Full Scale Riot, Agents of Man, Skarhead, and more, the group formed as a creative outlet during the quarantined isolation of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
On their inaugural release, Zero Trust expands upon their collective experience, blurring the lines between Hardcore, Metal, and Alternative Rock with substantive lyrical themes from vocalist BJ Allen, who reflects on the socio-political turmoil that has erupted throughout the past year. To accompany the release, Zero Trust also shared the official music video for the opening track “Birch”.
Speaking on the single, BJ Allen (vocals) says:
“'Birch' is about exploring the part of your mind that knows the whole system is against you, while also knowing that if humanity were to be unified, civil and just we would be in a much better position.”
