Names Without Numbers are back in a big way on January 13th. Their new song “Florida” will drop on that date and we have a little teaser to offer all of you. This is without a doubt the band’s strongest song to date and further reminds me of just how good they are, not just in regards to indie music but rock n roll as a whole. There is a lot of content floating around out there passing off as legitimate music but really lacks the meat and substance.… Continued →

I’d like to shed new light on this recent new song from Names Without Numbers. The song is called “You Do The Talking” and it’s hard to argue that this isn’t the BEST song the band has done. The band without a doubt have a diverse sound yet are extremely melodic, with precise attention pointed toward addictive melodies, and unforgettable harmonies. They are an alt-rock band with indie roots clearly showing, not afraid to shy away from a certain pop like influence. They straddle the line between the raw, unfiltered power of a rock band set to storm the stage with power and fury, and a band clearly wearing their pop side on their sleeves.… Continued →

The guys in this band contacted me to share their new music. At first I was a little hesitant probably due to the name itself but then I listened and was instantly blown away. Strange Her are an explosive indie rock band that would please fans of As Cities Burn, House of Heroes, Emery, The Classic Crime, Anberlin and maybe even a little Silversun Pickups and Funeral for a Friend. Good stuff and uplifting. Songs of substance. Their new album “A Marginal Sea” is out soon and you can check out the new music video for the song “The Scarlet Cord”, below.… Continued →

Prepare to feel old. After reading Brandon’s feature “The Best of 2008: 10 Years, A Look Back” a few weeks ago I’ve been digging through my music collection looking for more albums celebrating their 10 year anniversary only to realize 2008 was a great year for music! Which made me decide it’s time we give some of these great albums from the past the recognition they deserve. So naturally I hijacked the popular hashtag #ThrowbackThursday to bring you a new feature that celebrates the anniversaries of some classic albums.… Continued →

In case you missed it last month, I had Drew from Rival Consultants create a lyric video for the new Names Without Numbers song “The Apathy Anthem”. It came out pretty cool I think and if you give it a chance, I am sure you’ll enjoy it too. Names Without Numbers are an alt-emo-rock band from Nebraska who recently reunited after an almost decade long absence. Their music would please fans of Jimmy Eat World, Anberlin, The Classic Crime, Taking Back Sunday, House Of Heroes, Acceptance, and Thrice.… Continued →

In celebration of the upcoming new music from Nebraska based indie rock/emo band Names Without Numbers, the band has been posting these special “Meet the Band” type videos on their Facebook page. They will do it every week leading up to the May 21st release of the brand new single on IVM and the launch of their IndieGoGo campaign. Check out the video (both of them) below. Make sure to visit them on Facebook here and say hello. This talented group of men known as Names Without Numbers for those that are unfamiliar with their music would most likely earn a fan out of you for those that enjoy bands like Anberlin, House Of Heroes, The Juliana Theory, Jimmy Eat World, and Taking Back Sunday.… Continued →

I’ll admit it – I’m a huge House of Heroes fan. Ever since I first saw them at Purple Door Festival a few years back I’ve been hooked. Now as I sit here and hope that someone decides to buy me a copy of the seemingly amazing Suburba (hint hint, Gotee) – I’m absolutely stoked to share with all of you the conversation I had with Tim a few weeks ago.… Continued →
