New Haven, Connecticut rock band Mile Marker Zero has announced that they are releasing their new album The Fifth Row on March 2nd. The band self-recorded the album at the band’s home studio and was mastered by Andy Vandette who has worked with Rush and Devin Townsend.
Vocalist Dave Alley commented:
“The Fifth Row, is a reference to the legend of “rice and the chessboard” and is frequently used by futurists as a way to show exponential growth in technology. As a society, humanity is currently in the “fifth row” of the chessboard, a time which changes in technology happen so fast that they are almost impossible to accurately forecast or predict. The role of artificial intelligence and technology in our lives is a pretty hot topic right now. When we decided that we were going to do a concept album, it just seemed like the perfect topic to dive into given how we grew up and how technology influenced our lives.”
