Never Gonna Make It Further More Says Lots on Themselves

NEVER GONA MAKE IT, take on the genres ranging from metal, pop punk, grunge and alternative to create a genre that is rock crossed with pop punk mixed together to make an easycore hybrid in the metal sense. In other words, sounding between the likes of The Wonder Years, Fall Out Boy and A Day To Remember! With this genre mixing they went on to release one album titled "Don't Quit Your Day Job". But that's not the only amount of music available, because the band has all new music in the works! Shows will be following come the next year, with the band going on further more to say a lot about themselves.

1. Please tell us about the history of the band and its members.

The history of Never Gonna Make It starts back in college in the year 2015. Chris (vocals, R. guitar) wanted to start a project with Grant (bass) because of their shared musical interests. they were fraternity brothers at the same college, and that fraternity was also what introduced them to Ben (L. guitar). after the three decided that they needed a drummer, Ben brought in Steve who was the drummer in a previous project that Ben had been a part of. Tim (vocals), a long time friend of Chris, was involved in the writing process of some songs they were playing, so Chris invited him to feature in the studio when the band came ready to record a demo. They liked how it sounded, offered Tim a spot in the lineup, and that's how the final band lineup came to be.

2. What's the origin of the band's name?

The band name stems from our conversations about band names, oddly enough. We would brainstorm names and came up with a few of them: Makes Noise at You, Don't Quit your Day Job (which later became the title of the album), but no matter what we came up with, we always said, "it doesn't matter what we call ourselves, because we're never gonna make it." eventually that ended up being the case: we are Never Gonna Make It.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The band is based out of different areas of Massachusetts in U.S.A., some from the north side, some from south side. the scene around us is so broad, and there are so many talented acts, be it power pop, prog, metal, pop punk, jazz. I mean, you have powerhouses like Far Above The Ground, Sunsinger, Frantic Endeavor, Professor Caffeine and the Insecurities, the list goes on.

4.  How would you describe your style?

A: Our style is somewhere in between The Wonder Years, Fall Out Boy and A Day to Remember. We come from metal, pop punk, grunge and alternative backgrounds, and the product is a rock solid pop punk/easycore hybrid.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far, we have one full length album released: Don't Quit Your Day Job. Going into this album, you can expect strong pop punk and easycore elements, but diversity therein, stemming from each of our respective influences and experience

6.  Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes! We have lots of new music in the works. We are fleshing out some old songs and constantly writing and improving new ones, with a style reminiscent of the classic early 2000's cult classics. Definitely more towards the Thursday side than the Fall Out Boy side with this one, though.

7. How about playing shows and touring? Have anything planned out?

Coming up February 7th, we'll be playing the The Cave at New World Tavern in Plymouth, MA with Far Above The Ground. More shows to follow next season.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

As a band, the future could hold anything. We would love to see ourselves tour. We would love to spread our music to any ears that would have us. For the short term, we're very excited to have fans sing their hearts out with us now that DQYDJ is out.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can find Never Gonna Make It on all major streaming platforms, and if you want to buy the album, you can find that here:

10. What is it you'd like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

If there is something we could tell the listener before they jump into DQYDJ for the first time, I would tell them to enjoy it. Take their time with it. Pop punk is a fun genre, where talking about issues in your life or the world are turned into camaraderie and fellowship. Let's keep that trend going!
