HOW DID YOUR NAME ORIGINATE?
We came up with the name Born Zero because it represents our generation of people. All of the band members were born in 2000 but the name is also a reference to our generation being lost, we are all zeros fighting for something while the world is crashing down around us and it’s the human races fault for this, we are the generation that has to live in a dysfunctional society and the planet our elders left for us . Also, we all have freakish attitude to ourselves when we play live, we try to act like zeros, freaks to represent ourselves and our name.
