ZERO HOLDS is a rock and roll band with grit.  They formed amid the ashes of Massachusetts based band THE ROMAN NUMERAL THREE, a faux-acoustic/post-rock effort including Joe Touchette, Mike Rague, and John Thomas.  By a certain stroke of chance, Tyler Leadbetter soon emerged gallantly from the lost village of Hanson Ma. to join the remaining three in making a new and slightly edgier style of music.  Touchette seasons his lyrics with evident gloom and a hint of curiosity,  Rague simmers them over ambient guitars like stove burner flames growing ever larger until the kitchen burns away from the house.  Gifted throughout with a heart beat who’s will is nearly immortal, Leadbetter and Thomas know better than to overthink this disaster.  The rhythm swells and the windy inferno of noise is tamed when four voices turn to one and lead the entire neighborhood in climactic chanting hymns that suppress the smoke and heat, breaking ground for an end with proper relief.
