This Texan band has an interesting formation story that sets them apart in the nature of their purpose and way of operations.
Nothing More Formation
The band formed when the members were still in middle school. The aspirations of these young minds were so strong even at such an early stage, that till this day, they attribute their success to their initial dreams and ambitions in the world of music. Thanks to their high levels of boredom in their individual lives, combined with an intense musical obsession, the band soon started to develop at a good pace. Having been exposed to the addictive sounds of rock music, Nothing More had an obvious and understandable inclination towards this genre from a very young age. But soon, the band members were at a crossroads. With everyone telling them to stay in school and pursue higher education, the band member ignored all advice thrown towards them and dedicated all their energies to producing wonderful music.
Hence started their unique musical journey, that saw them fixing up their first tour van out of a raccoon-infested RV and even making their own stage rigs for their live shows. When it came to their performances, they were as passionate as a musical band could be, putting all of their hearts and souls into the music they played. These tours were the most formative part of Nothing More’s early years and helped them build a strong foundation for what was to come in the future.
Soon the band members started drawing inspiration from everything around them. They struck the right balance between empiricism, rationalism and their own belief systems to create a view of the world which could inspire them to create amazing and very meaningful music. With such passion and meaning at the developmental stages, it wasn’t long before the band started gaining momentum in the music industry.
