Hailing from Montana, No Cigar is a band that started from the frustration and inspiration of each member’s musical and life experiences. Seeded by 3 years of touring and recording with Colorado-based band the Photo Atlas, former drummer Nick Miles has now abandoned his place behind the drum kit to challenge himself as front-man on this new project.
No Cigar fits right in between the catchy appeal of pop punk and the grit of early punk rock - a great compromise between the eclectic arrangements of Alkaline Trio and fresh hooks a la Rise Against.
The band thankfully strays from the over-produced aesthetics too often associated with the genre, following D.I.Y. ethics and self-producing their own material in order to achieve a more organic and personal sound, but also to be emotionally closer to their art and to the ideals behind this band.
