Hailing from San Antonio, Texas, Nothing More stubbornly steered their own course only to be rewarded years later with the breakthrough they so thoroughly deserve. Founded in 2003 by drummer John Hawkins and guitarist Mark Vollelunga, four albums and hundreds of shows only resulted in moderate success in their early years. Things started happening when Hawkins decided to switch his drumsticks for the microphone but the final piece of the puzzle didn’t drop into place until 2014, when they were signed by Eleven Music. The label re-released their latest, self-titled CD ‘Nothing More’. Follow-up ‘The Stories We Tell Ourselves’ (2017) was another step in the right direction and support slots for Papa Roach and Ghost, amongst others, paved the way to further success. They like to take a DIY approach to things and this includes production and artwork as well as instrumental contraptions the likes of which you’ve never seen before. Musically the quartet are difficult to pigeonhole. Elements from hard rock and progressive rock/metal coalesce into a unique sound sprinkled with an inventive hardcore or nu-metal edge without neglecting the melodic side. On their latest full-length ‘Spirits’ (2022) they continue to experiment so there’s plenty to enjoy for alternative rock/metal fans. #GMM23
