The Zits are a one man D.I.Y. pop punk band with a wide range of other influences. Since Heath Benson formed The Zits in 2008, he has written, recorded and self released 5 EP's, a single, and an album.

Heath is currently writing and recording the next release titled "Broke and Loving It" due out sometime this winter.
