About Us:

Zero Down was a three-piece punk outfit hailing from the greater Los Angeles area. Formed in 2000, the members of Zero Down possessed a sterling punk rock resume, having spent time in bands like Strung Out, Pulley, Down By Law, and War Called Peace. Their debut full length, With A Lifetime To Pay, was released on Fat Wreck Chords in 2001.


At first glance, Zero Down might appear as a typical So-Cal “skate-punk” trio. However, after listening to the record, it becomes clear that their personal politics ran deep and their agenda as a band was equally profound.

Jim is gone, but he will always be with us. He always wanted to make music, to be heard, and by listening, you made his dreams come true. We are so very grateful to all of you for that, and all of your thoughts for him now.
