NEVERMIND has spent the last year honing their post hardcore and desperate emotional sound with their “self titled” debut EP, showcasing and perfecting a talent for writing both fast paced inspired and delicately emotional songs with an interesting 80s/90s feel. With touring throughout the U.S. and being on the road this St. George, Utah band is constantly on the move to perfect what has rapidly come to be known in the underground music scene as NEVERMIND

Sometimes, entrees are better on leftover night.

Formerly in the Colorado Springs local band "Restore All Vengeance," songwriter Joseph Acosta and drummer Derek Bricker opened the refrigerator one day and smelt something grand. It was material their old band cooked up long ago, but was never consumed. So they decided to sit down for dinner and have some RAV leftovers.

But they weren't alone.

Woody Harrelson look-alike and vocalist Zach Carey joined them for dinner, bringing his own leftover dish from his last project, "Oddly Familiar."

Soon the three of them began mixing together their various foods and spoon-feeding each other, bite after bite.

It wasn't long before they each realized that what they were consuming together were no longer leftovers. Nay, it was a new entree entirely.

"This doesn't taste like metalcore," said Derek, who prefers to be called "Dak," named after Luke's co-pilot who died violently in "The Empire Strikes Back."

"No, the way the cayenne pepper blends with the lemon sauce is more old school hardcore punk," said Zach, "with a hint—a tiny hint—of progressive. Spicy."

"I agree," said Joseph while tears trickled down his uniquely good-looking face. "It's beautiful, the way it all blends together."

Dak, who has a grossly inhuman flesh-to-body-hair ratio, squirted some cream into his tea.

"That's kinda icky, but oddly attractive," commented Zach.

"So should we wait for another guitarist and a bassist to enjoy our dinner with us?" asked Joseph, the more mature bandmate.

"That won't be necessary," responded Zach, who was creamin' his own Earl Grey by now. "I prefer our current three-way."

As the young gentlemen finished their candlelit supper, they continued their private conversation over some cheesecake.

Then, the unthinkable: the candles climaxed and set their hearts ablaze.
