Nothington
Jay Northington and Chris Matulich formed Nothington in 2006 and it was clear from the very beginning that these

gritty anthems were connecting with audiences and the band received a great response from listeners and peers alike. They hit the road and developed a synergy that is evident on their sophomore release, Road, Bridges, & Ruins. On this release we saw the rise of co-vocalist, Chris Matulich, who brought melody and nuance to their sound, and made them contemporaries with bands like Gaslight Anthem and The Menzingers.


Armed with two songwriters and two singers, Nothington jumped to Chicago label Red Scare for 2011's Borrowed Time. This was a breakout release and by this time the band was so popular in Europe that they frequently made transatlantic trips and
were getting tour oers from mainstream bands. But all the while Nothington stayed diligent to their craft and loyal to their core audience: the outsiders who sing along with beers held high.

In The End will be the first full length studio album from the band in 5 years. After playing a thousand sweaty shows and theoccasional spurt of activity in the form of a 7" or a tour with The Lawrence Arms, the band went into hibernation. The guys
needed to catch their breath, catch up with friends, and catch up with adulthood. But recently things have materialized andNothington plans on making a triumphant return to Europe to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their first album.
MakeWar
MakeWar is about a fight.

A fight against ignorance. And laziness.
A fight against your inner demons.
A fight to stay conscious. So you can have one more drink with your friends.
A fight to do what you want instead of what you're suppose to.
A fight that isn't violent. Or full of hate.

This fight is about knocking down what's holding you back.
That's why MakeWar sounds like letting go.

It's fighting depression by embracing aggression.
And embracing everyone around you who's doing that too.

MakeWar is Jose, Greg and Edwin. Welcome to our fight.
