Zero1 featuring actor/comedian Hal Sparks signs a Worldwide deal with Rocket Science Ventures

ZERO1, Hard Rock Project Featuring Actor/Comedian Hal Sparks signs to Rocket Science Ventures, readies re-release of LP, New single/video.

PRLog - Jan. 10, 2012 - Zero1, the Hard Rock project featuring Actor/Comedian Hal Sparks, has signed a Worldwide recording deal with Rocket Science Ventures/RED, who will re-release the bands self-titled debut LP in March, (produced by King’s X’s Dug Pinnick) as well as the single “AMERICAN PSYCHO”, released to all digital outlets Friday, April 13th.

Best known for his roles in the hit Showtime series Queer as Folk, as the host of E’s Talk Soup and as a commentator on VH1 fare including I Love the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s,  Greatest Hard Rock Songs, and many more, Sparks is also an accomplished film actor, with appearances in Dude, Where’s My Car?, Spider-Man 2, Dickie Roberts: Child Star, and the 2009 Mike Judge vehicle, Extract, as well as his own recent Showtime Stand-up special, Charmageddon.

Sparks is also an outspoken activist and a strong political voice, as a regular guest host on the syndicated Stephanie Miller show, and host of his own weekly talk program on Chicago’s Progressive Talk Network. Hal is also a regular guest on CNN, the View, The Joy Behar Show, The Tonight Show, and more, and is co-headliner of 2011’s “Sexy Liberals  Tour”, with Stephanie Miller, grossing over a million dollars in ticket sales.

But despite his achievements as an actor and a comedian, Zero1 is far from a celebrity “vanity” project;  It is a serious, ass-kicking, Rock and Roll band, with no shortage of chops. Produced by legendary King’s X frontman/bassist Dug Pinnick (who also appears on several tracks), Zero1 is 13 cuts of progressive, catchy-as-f**k, balls to the wall, Blue-Collar Hard Rock. Call it Metal, call it Rock, call it Post-Grunge, call it whatever the Hell you want, the bottom line is Zero1 will kick your ass, and they won’t stop once you hit the ground.

On tracks like “Mad Season”, written about late Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley, and “Helsinki”, Vocalist/Guitarist Sparks belts out powerful, thought-provoking lyrics with the conviction of a seasoned pro (as anyone who saw him trading verses with Dennis De Young and Sebastian Bach on Celebrity Duets will attest), destroying any preconceived notions you may have about actor/musicians. Sparks is a consummate frontman, musician, and songwriter, Hell-Bent on destroying your speakers.

Along with the rest of Zero1, Brian Crow (Guitar/Vocals), Bumper Renga (Bass/Vocals), and Lance Tamanaha (Drums/Vocals), Sparks will hit the road in May for a month-long US jaunt with THC/Rocket Science labelmates Oedipus, before a trek across the pond for a handful of major Summer festivals.

Look for Zero1 in stores nationwide in March, and the “American Psycho” single, available on all major digital retailers April 13th. Visit Zero1 on the web at Facebook.com/zero1nation. You can view the teaser of the “American Psycho” video here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bwf6TvI9pDk
