Throwback Thursday: Nevertheless

Throwback Thursday is back! I've finally managed to get the blog going again, and I'm excited to bring this post back!

This week's band is "Nevertheless". Nevertheless came in on the Christian power punk scene in 2005 and released their first major label album in 2006 entitled ""Live Like We're Alive". The guys met in high school and came up with the name Nevertheless from Luke 5:15 which says: "And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net." I love when bands take their names from Scripture, and the meaning behind Nevertheless is very special. 

"Live Like We're Alive" did well, and a music video for "The Real" was made. In 2008 the guys released "In The Making", and although "Sleeping In" made it to #24 on the R&R charts as well as the Wow 2009 cd, "In The Making" was vastly underrated. Finally, in 2009, Nevertheless released their last project, "When I'm With You EP" which was a collection of acoustic love songs written for the band member's wives. How sweet!

Towards the end of 2009 Nevertheless released a statement saying they were disbanding at the end of 2009 due to personal issues. It was sad to see them go, but ultimately it was the best decision for them. Their guitarist, AJ Cheek went on to join Revive, who also disbanded this year, and has recently released an EP. The former Lead Singer Joshua Pearson is reported to be working on a solo project. AJ's stuff is pretty exciting, and I'm sure Josh's will be also.

Nevertheless was a great band that wasn't around for very long. Their music lives on through their two albums, and is no doubt still impacting listeners. Be sure to check these guys out!
