After years of hard work and dedication Houston’s own, thelastplaceyoulook are seeing some serious results. They released 2009’s full length debut See the Light Inside You and then hit the road playing with such bands as Ten Years, Hawthorne Heights, Sevendust, Evan’s Blue and many more. They put out a top notch video for their lead single Don’t Make It So Easy which garnered plays over 75,000 and still counting. Their new single Band To Save Me has been added to regular rotation on Clear Channel’s 94.5 KTBZ The Buzz. This makes them the only unsigned, unmanaged artist in regular rotation on one of the largest rock markets in the US. All this going on and festival bookers have taken notice as they will be opening mainstages for the Houston Press BestFest playing with such acts as The Toadies and Against Me. For a followup they will be the first unsigned act to ever open the mainstage at Buzzfest 27, October 22 at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion. Getting to play along with some of the biggest acts in rock including Staind, Bush and many others, will definitely keep the momentum going. All this and they still find time to write and record tracks for new music all the time with several notable producers in the industry. With their fanbase exploding everything is ending up amazing for thelastplaceyoulook.

It can be said that the role of an artist is to absorb the beauty, destruction and love of what surrounds them, and to portray it as best they feel to an audience. And it is well understood that the life of an artist can be full of professional hardship, such as public humiliation and financial ruin. But from time to time a group of these brazen and unique individuals will get together and decide that their lives are best served by total commitment to each other and their craft, and you have what we call a band. There exists a band that has welcomed every threat to the collapse of their artistry, internalized it, and decided that no matter what, they will change how people listen to music and experience the celebration of hearing it live. That band is Nothing More. When the cosmos told them “you can’t tour” and burned down their RV, Nothing More gutted the thing and used it for another year with no A/C or heat and a melted couch. When left at an artistic and professional crossroads void of a lead singer, their drummer stepped up to take the vocal operation to a new level. When the rain left them stuck in the mud at 4 a.m. on Christmas Eve morning, they dug themselves out with their bare hands. When the country’s economy collapsed, they began processing their own bio fuel and producing their own records. And when MTV bastardizes the whole idea of music and what it means to be in a band, they stand with integrity and trash can in hand to show the world a new level of commitment to love and showmanship. So if you are in search of the status quo, please tune your radio to any station on the dial. But… If you are looking for a group that gets out of the van with dirt under their finger nails, sweat on their brow and an ache in their back from carrying the music industry into a liberating revolution, then please tune into Nothing More.
