The Almost

The Almost is the band of ex drummer/vocalist Aaron Gillespie of Underoath from Clearwater, Florida, United States since 2005. Aaron stated that this band is much more of a traditional rock project than Underoath. A Monster Monster is on the loose. The Almost’s second album for Tooth & Nail/Virgin Records began taking shape just as soon as the band came off the road after touring for their 2007 debut, Southern Weather, including a stint on that summer’s Warped tour.

Unless you've been living in a cave for the last twenty years you would have heard of THE HARD-ONS: yes, the Hard-ons, that legendary multi-racial punk band that lay waste to all and sundry before them with their "Motorhead meets Beach Boys" death-pop sonic assault, and that continues to this day, to leave foot prints on the top of your skull with their violent yet well-meaning aural attack.
