Born from a basement in Lowell, MA back in 2002, Now Denial has consistently been exploring the fringes of genres – from punk and hardcore, to classic rock and metal – while never sticking to a blueprint; being heavy on their own terms with no regard for current trends. The band has maintained a very hands-on/DIY approach from the beginning, and has continued to do so with every song, recording, release, tour, and promotion. Now Denial has worked with various labels such as Get Young Records, Gatehouse Anchor, and others… but has worked primarily with Providence, RI’s Tor Johnson Records.
Following the release of their sophomore album, “Facemelter”, the band found themselves in need of a new drummer, and in early 2009 Brian Donovan (also of Furnace) took over on drums. This ushered in a new era for Now Denial and was followed by the release of the “Fuck Now Denial” EP, a split 7″ with Get Laid, and a handful of weekends and tours out of New England. In 2012, Now Denial won the award for “Best Punk/Hardcore Act” in The Boston Phoenix / WFNX’s annual Best Music Poll, and was also nominated for “Punk Artist of the Year” at the 25th annual Boston Music Awards.
After the summer of 2013, the band shelved the new material and decided to focus on other efforts. Adam and Dino are currently playing in Raw Blow; Jared and Joe are currently in Big Kill.
Now Denial is Adam, Jared, Jarrod, Joe, and Dino.
