It all started out with a couple cases of beer, a back porch, and a few old friends. It was years after Anadivine and ex-members Sean-Paul Pillsworth and Bill Manley were holing up in the studio with ex-Astronauts drummer Steve Markota to produce an incredible debut recording.
They played a hometown show. In months they were traveling far from their native Kingston, NY, playing almost every weekend. And they kept getting called back, each time with bigger and more enthusiastic performances to match the crowds. A year went by so fast.
NFAW released their debut EP, A Flood Tomorrow, produced by studio pro John Naclerio (My Chemical Romance, Senses Fail, Polar Bear Club) at Nada Studios in New Windsor, NY. After releasing the CD on friend-run imprint Music for End Times, Naclerio signed the band to his own Broken English record label for digital distribution.
The band will be entering Nada Studios as free agents in June to record their debut full-length with Naclerio. While they’re not sure what the future holds, they’re excited to take it head-on, starting the year off as one of Alternative Press magazine’s 100 Bands to Watch in 2010.
