THE FORUMS ARE UP AND RUNNING AGAIN!!
I finally got a chance to sit down and fix the problems. So, all the new users that have come to the site, that haven't had a chance to sign-up or post on the forums, have at it!!
In other news, our CD continues to be sold on the street as more people learn about the band. We
are trying to get some shows together and we'll let you know the second we have any confirmations. As of recently, there have been a couple of fresh leads that I am following the best I can. Stay tunned for the information to be posted as it becomes available.

An update! Wow! Sorry it's been almost a month since the last 'update' in this section but things kept preventing me from working on the site, thus not allowing an update.
In the latest happenings, I'm pleased to announce that our website has now been getting a steady 1000 hits a day (on avg in the past few weeks)! This is quite a bit of traffic, and all your visits are greatly appreciated.
Our cd is now available in various online stores, along with some retail outlets here in Pittsburgh. Stop by the music section to get the full listing so that you can buy our cd!!!
Soon to be available for purchasing online is our 'Init Zer0' t-shirts! As soon as I get everything situation, there will be a 'merch' section (or something similar) added so that you can show off your mad fashion.
Well, that's about it for now. I'll try and update more often as things progress.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Init Zer0 album entitled Skin
has officially been released!!! Be sure to get your copy ASAP before
they sell out! :-)
Now begins the process of enlisting our CD on
amazon.com (also target.com, borders.com, and cdnow.com) and cdbaby.com.
It'll take about 3-5 weeks before you can purchase our CD online -
but don't wait until then!! If you would like us to mail a copy of
the CD to you personally, just drop us an e-mail and we'll ship one
out as soon as a payment is made. For now, we'll only accept payments
through ebay.com. This is only temporary until the online outlets
start stocking our CD. A good ole' check or money order also will
work, which we will give you more information about via e-mail.
Keep checking back frequently as we are in the process of booking
many shows for the Summer/Fall season. We'll let you know ASAP as
to when our CD release party will be as well.
Now remember, get those CD's!!

Work on the CD continues and
should be wrapping up here shortly. All vox are done except for one
song and now the mixing process is the only thing holding this CD
back. That is what takes most of the work because we want this to
sound perfect. I know the shows section is a bit barren, but as soon
as we know of something, we'll post it. Just keep checking back for
status updates on the CD and shows.
I've added a neat little feature to the website, which
I'm sure you've already noticed. A random picture appears in the background
each time you click on the home section. This is more of an aesthetic
addition than anything. What do you think of it? Let me know in the

New pictures of the March 19th show @ Nick's Fat City
are up in the new and improved images
section!! I decided to completely redo the layout and groupings for
all the pictures we have. Let me know what you think in the forums...
(I personally like it - lol).
The new recordings, from our 'Pre-EP' we've been handing out at our
shows, are now available in the music section.
Be sure to check these tunes out, as we may post 1 or 2 more songs
in addition to those already there.
We have at least 4 confirmed shows coming up this month, including
one @ NFC! Check out the shows section for
all the info. Our next show is another competition, but this time
it's all ages. So that leaves no excuse for all you under 21ers to
not make our next show... Also, there may some acoustic Init Zer0
shows in the works... I'll be sure to let everyone know as soon as
the details get finalized (for the acoustic shows).
Well, here's to another step in the process...

The bios section is up and complete! Check it out by clicking bios
on the left. Also, I'm sure you've noticed the new Skin
EP cover artwork by Absolutliz.
Isn't that awesome?? We'll keep everyone up-to-date as to when the
actual CD release date will be. We have a show coming up on Feb. 28,
2004. Check out the details in the shows section. Get ready Pittsburgh,
the new Init Zer0 is about to be unleashed!
A few updates have been made to the site. It's mostly small stuff;
only web folk will see what's changed. Overall, it allows for a better
** It's official!** The new bassist of Init Zer0 is Mike Lytkowski.
Please welcome him in the "Zer0" fashion whenever you get
a chance to meet him. He's got phat beats and can sing smooth backup
vocals as well. Our next show is gonna rock hardcore!
Speaking of which, we've been vigorously teaching Mike our songs and
working out our 'new' sound. Once all that gets finalized, look for
us to start rocking the music scene once more. We'll keep you up to
date on those matters as soon as show info becomes available. Also,
I'm going to try and get the biography section finished soon, along
with getting some pics of Mike online.
Hope all is well with everyone...
Until the next update,

Good morning/afternoon/evening/late-night, whatever time you are
checking out the site. I'd like to personally welcome you to the
unveiling of the new Init Zer0 website. Feel free to browse around
and check out the new stuff we’ve got available. Some parts
of the site are still being worked on, but will be finished as soon
As some of you might know, Austin, our bassist, departed from the
band towards the end of November. I will miss playing with him (since
we’ve been playing together for about 7 years now). Personal
reasons and conflict of interests contributed to his decision to
leave. He is moving on with his musical career and I’ll try
to perhaps put something on the site in regards to his next musical
accomplishment. Thanks Austin for all your hard work and dedication
to rockin’ out.
We’ve acquired a new bassist and will start to practice with
him sometime after Christmas. I’ll put more information when
the time comes (as he’s confirmed joining us, but I won’t
post anything until it’s for certain, etched in stone, and
signed in blood).
As I wrap things up, our goal is to have our new 6 or 7 song EP
fully recorded and mastered and ready to roll by 2004. A few incidents
have caused yet more setbacks, but we will conquer our evils that
