Since forming at the end of 2012, the Pennsylvania natives have honed a sound blending metal and post-hardcore, retaining a raw and impactful edge whilst balancing storming breakdowns with buoyant melodic injections. Coming together as a group of friends with various musical influences, If Not For Me’s camaraderie shines through in the chemistry, both live and on record.
Despite suffering a number of line-up changes, the East Coast rockers refused to lose focus, continuing to assert their work ethic on the local circuit, picking up a loyal local following as well as landing supports for the likes of Ice Nine Kills, Chasing Safety & Brightwell.
With a momentum continuing to build into 2015, If Not For Me entered the studio with Ryan Maculoso at Automation Studios to begin work on their debut EP. The band continued to push the envelope with “Written In Blood”, a combination of their growing experience, continued exposure to some of the leading metal bands in the country and the influence of Maculoso ensuring a highly promising rookie record from the Lemoyne outfit.
Armed with a brand new video for latest single ‘Milwaukee’, If Not For Me have their sights set far beyond the confines of Pennsylvania for 2016.
