So i was totally bullshitting on that last post... [30 Nov 2005|08:35am]

[ mood | ecstatic ]

it was so hard not saying something about them returning to music when i was told not to LOL... 6 months later the truth comes out! well, here is the latest, and YES, it is true.. they are returning minus bill. Since leaving nothingface in 2002, Matt had moved to LA where he was working with Bill on a project called "Kingdom of Snakes" which has been failing miserably since Matt left.... stranding him at a cheap music store with me and nowhere to go. now, the monstrosity that is music that has been contained inside him this past year has burst, and he has returned to music with a firey mouth and swinging fists.. watch out emo bitches - Matt is back.


Nothingface, the hard rock/metal outfit formed in the mid nineties in Washington, DC, has quite a history. Frontman Matt Holt, guitarist Tom Maxwell, drummer Chris Houck and bassist Bill Gaal have made crushing, riveting hard rock intertwined with heavy melodies and compelling vocals. After two records for DCide, 1997's "Pacifier" and 1998's ?"An Audio Guide to Everyday Atrocity", Nothingface made its major label debut on TVT Records with 2000?s "Violence", and 2002's "Skeletons" with critical acclaim. After "Violence" was complete, the highly charismatic Tommy Sickles replaced drummer Chris Houck and most recently, former Deadlights/Danzig bassist Jerry Montano replaced Bill Gaal. But their story begins in the present and their past is just that, the past.

"I knew from the first note we played together that myself, Jerry, Sickles and Matt were supposed to be in a band writing music together", says guitarist Tom Maxwell. "The feeling was euphoric and completely natural. It was just right. Almost any word is too small to describe the chemistry between the four of us. Not only as musicians onstage behind our instruments, but in every living condition. We?re a gang of four on a mission to punch a hole into the world."

Any musician, seasoned or not, can relate to that feeling Maxwell just described. Sometimes, you spend your entire life trying to find someone who "gets" what you're trying to do musically, and never succeed. Other times, you find your musical soul mates and you just click with these other musicians, and it?s like you were just born to play together. Luckily for Nothingface, they connect on that spiritual level. As a result, the music that comes out of this collective is raw and as real as music can get. Passionate yet distraught and beautiful yet violent, Nothingface are ready to once again make their mark on a music scene infested with copycats and clones.

The members of Nothingface are no strangers to the music biz. Known to be a ferocious live band with overwhelming energy, power and precision. Nothingface are an act few can follow whole-heartedly. They cut their teeth touring relentlessly, sharing the stage with the likes of Pantera, Disturbed, Mudvayne and Ministry. As well as being part of Tattoo the Earth and Ozzfest 2003. So many shows, so many tours, so many hardcore fans. Make no mistake, Nothingface has always been and more than ever remains an entity unto itself. This quartet is a bonafide monster. A dangerous and decadent band with a razor sharp edge, heavy infectious hooks and a singer who not only confronts the world around him, but also mirrors his very own skeletons and inner demons. If you were a fan in the past, you will be surprised pleasantly of what's to come next.

Each Nothingface song reeks of sincerity, and is written with tight, rather excellent musicianship. "I think I speak for us all by saying that our next record will surpass every other record we had ever been a part of,"says Holt, "I feel that our music has grown and has the ability to change the face of our genre, spawning others that will only attempt to achieve what we do so naturally." That kind of confidence comes from Holt's faith in the quality and strength of his band's music.

The stage was set in 2003 for what would become a long hiatus. Exhausted by personal turmoil and frustration with their now former record label, the monster known to many and adored by fans all over the world would sleep. However, Maxwell and Sickles rehearsed in their native Maryland, flying Montano out from Los Angeles to keep the writing and recording process flowing. "There was no hesitation," says drummer Tommy Sickles, "The three of us began writing and recording songs almost immediately after Ozzfest 2003." The trio spent the next two years on a musical journey that would see them re-inventing themselves as songwriters and musicians, recording demos and playing in side projects before reuniting with their singer Matt Holt, who had exiled himself from everything and everyone no, he didn't exile himself lol....he was making snowmen :) since the bands slumber.

Bassist Jerry Montano gives light to the next chapter of the Nothingface evolution as "Extreme Rock, a band separate from the rest of these cookie cutter heavy bands, that can only be described in 5 words: Haunting, Passionate, Dark, Violent and REAL." Like his brothers in arms in the band, Montano cites Nothingface as the band he has worked his entire career to find. "To have done it the right way from the beginning writing, sweating, suffering, living and bleeding for this band over the years is something many may never know, but they will feel it and hear it in the music, which is built on what we really are and how we truly feel, be it pure fucking hate or blissful pain. That to me is what this band is all about, and that's honesty."

so keep your eyes opened.. they are playing a baltimore show real soon - and i believe they may have already executed one club, but they are rumoured to be touring with some very big bands you know and love......... my lips are sealed till i'm told otherwise, but i will say they might be seen with some circus freak like bands HA! The new Nothingface album is going to be a new breed of music for our boys and is in production as we speak... believe me, i'll be bitching about it like NUTS when it finally comes out. KEEP ROCKIN!

[ mood | curious ]

i wonder what it would be like if Nothingface would get back together. would it go over well? or would it crash and burn because of this retarded "scene" movement happening in music right now.

i know i'd go to all their shows and buy their albums, but would anyone actually care if they played again? or would they be content with their crossdressing bullshit emo fag bands?

Sadly enough, besides my boyfriend, I have only met two other people who have heard of NOTHINGFACE. And both of them I met when I was on vacation in Georgia and Canada.

"Before this starts I just want to tell you that you could fuck us. Love me. So I can relax, so I can aim straight, so I can do right for us.

I know you inside. I know you're cold. I know you're saddened by the loss of those and now you're cold. I'm sorry that you're next, so go...

Who's next? All right! With the fucking bruised knees in the black shirt. Screaming, all right. In the bloody back seat of my black hearse. Hanging, all right. On a fucking meat hook in my basement. Who's next? All right! It's everybody's time to die!

My mind does this I can't stop the rage inside. My hands again. Hate me. So I can relax. So I can kill you. So I can do right for us.

No more pretending we're all alone. I want to hear just why you left us all. We really loved you but now you're cold. I'm sorry that you're next to go...

Who's next? All right! With the fucking bruised knees in the black shirt Screaming, all right. In the back seat of my bloody hearse. Hanging, all right. On a fucking meat hook in my basement. Who's next? All right! It's time for everybody to die!

Yeah, fuck, you'll die you fucking bitch

I can't deny forensic lies or hateful sighs. I'll wait for you, I wait for you.

I'm glad you know...

I cannot take this anymore. You've pushed me to the limits. You sold us this before, but I still know we'll find the right one to fight with us now and I know that you're set on us, you're set on us, you're set on us..."

Just stopping in... [01 Dec 2004|06:40pm]

Man, this community is a long time coming. I remember my brother saw their website announcing their breakup before I'd seen it, and the first thing I did was look for a nothingface community to see if I could get info on their further musical ventures.

Ironically today, as I've joined, I've been listening to Skeletons in the car to and from work. I loved these guys, the energy, the sound, everything about it. They rocked like no other and I always come back to them. Killer live shows too... not sure what else to say just yet, but glad this was made!
