Tempe-based four piece Never Let This Go is bringing their upbeat mix of alternative rock and pop-punk to the Valley, earning their place as up and coming talent in Arizona’s thriving music scene. Formed in January 2012 by lead vocalist David Kleinebreil and guitarist Nick Giovannucci, the band solidified their lineup in July with bassist Alex Gilbertson and drummer Jordan Auge. Drawing from Yellowcard, Blink-182, and Jimmy Eat World as their primary musical influences, the band recorded their debut self-titled EP, released in May, with local producer David Ludlow. The music uses their past experiences to write songs with relatable themes such as growing up, leaving home, ending relationships, and general life transitions. Never Let This Go has brought their energetic live performance to stages across the Valley, playing with bands like Go Radio and Man Made Machine. The band also played six Relay for Life concerts in the spring and took first place in Arizona State University’s annual Battle of the Bands. Currently, NLTG is tirelessly working on new music, reaching out to their growing fan base, and preparing to open for Sparks the Rescue and Set It Off this November. Read more on Last.fm.
