New Brunswick, nj [2001-2006]
So whatever happened to Ari Katz? When Lifetime, the super-influential punk band he fronted for close to a decade, decided to call it a day following their most successful string of records and touring ever, Katz seemed to be the most inconspicuous. He opened a record store in Red Bank, New Jersey, married his longtime girlfriend, and for the most part, fell out of public sight. But when the right musical combination began to crystallize sometime last year, the decision to step back into the band fray was, for Katz, a no-brainer. Zero Zero was conceived and the band began writing the bulk of AM Gold, their inaugural album for Jade Tree.
