Biography

In late 2001, four freshman students in high school in a small town in northwest Indiana decided to start a band. The first rehearsals were a little rough, but as time went on, the music started to happen. In the beginning, 0 for 4 was essentially a pop punk band, and they were best known for their catchy hooks and guitar riffs. They wrote a number of songs and played shows at many local venues throughout their high school endeavors. They patiently saved their money and were gradually able to acquire better equipment. 0 for 4’s popularity began to grow, and they started to make their mark on the local scene. In 2005, the guys graduated from high school and spread out among three different colleges, but they never lost their desire to play music. Over the years they have made several self-produced demos and have continued to play shows as much as possible.

All along, the members of 0 for 4 have been refining their sound and attempting to find their niche in the music scene. The members’ skills and musical tastes have evolved over time, and so has the sound of the band. They’ve tuned down their guitars and have developed a heavier sound by intertwining hardcore chops and screaming into their songs. However, in a scene that tends to favor the usual hardcore and emo bands, 0 for 4 has still strived to attain a sound that is somewhere in between. All of their songs are individually written without any regard for conforming to any one particular style. The result is a variety of good solid rock with a unique sound that blends multiple styles including metal, punk, alternative, hardcore and many other strands of rock.

After graduating from college in 2009 with degrees in architecture, biology, engineering, and computer information technology, the members of 0 for 4 are still focused on moving forward. The band has since signed a deal with Deka Records, and, with their own equipment and a do-it-yourself mentality, recorded and mixed their full-length debut album entirely on their own. They still write songs in their spare time and get together to rehearse and perform. Despite encountering many obstacles over the years, the band has persevered and not let go of their passion for music. Knowing how competitive the music industry is, 0 for 4 is still hanging in there waiting for a chance to prove to the world what they are capable of.

Lyrics

All We Are

Written By: 0 for 4

IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO MAKE A CHANGE
WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMS RE-ARRANGED.
MISTAKES I’VE MADE CAN’T BE UNDONE,
BUT HAVE THE STRENGTH TO CARRY ON.

AND ALL WE ARE,
WE’VE GONE SO FAR FROM LETTING GO.
WHEN LIFE SEEMS OUT OF REACH,
YOU COULD BE ALL I NEED.
I’M NOT LETTING GO.

SO GRAB THESE ARMS, THEY’RE REACHING OUT.
STAND ON YOUR FEET WITHOUT A DOUBT.
I CAN’T LET YOU GIVE UP ON ME.
WE’LL GET THINGS BACK WHERE THEY USED TO BE.

IT’S GONE ON FOR TOO LONG,
AND THIS TIME IT WAS MINE,
AND I KNOW IT MEANT EVERYTHING TO ME.
AND THE TIME THAT YOU LIED,
AND THE GUILT WILL COLLIDE INSIDE YOU,
IT MEANT EVERYTHING TO ME.

IT’S BEEN SO LONG
TO FIND THAT THINGS KEEP GOING WRONG.
AND SOMEDAY THESE THINGS WILL CHANGE,
AND SOMETHING GOOD WILL COME MY WAY.

TONIGHT I’LL FINALLY SAY GOODBYE
TO THE THINGS I’VE ALMOST LEFT BEHIND,
AND THESE THOUGHTS ARE KILLING ME INSIDE,
AND I KNOW THEY’LL BE SET FREE TONIGHT.

MY TIME HAS COME
WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE TONIGHT,
AND SOME SAY THINGS NEVER CHANGE.
FOR NOW I FOUND MY PEACE OF MIND.

Don't Hold Back

Written By: 0 for 4

I KNOW YOU’VE HEARD IT ALL BEFORE.
THAT’S WHY YOU’RE ALWAYS SAD
WHEN THE RAIN POURS.
TRUST IN YOURSELF AND NOT IN YOUR PAST.
THINGS WON’T GET BETTER IF YOU HOLD BACK.

AND THIS IS ON YOUR HEAD
‘CAUSE I CARE TOO MUCH TO SAY GOODBYE TO YOU.

AND EVERY DAY, I LOOK BACK AND SAY
“I WON’T GO ON WITHOUT YOU HERE”.
I CAN’T HOLD BACK.
TRUST IN ME SO I CAN SOMEHOW BE
THE ONE YOU KNOW, THE ONE YOU LOVE.
YOU CAN’T HOLD BACK.

I’M HERE TO HELP, I’M HERE TO STAY,
GIVE ME A CHANCE OR GIVE ME AWAY.
I CAN’T GUARANTEE THAT I’M ALL YOU NEED, BUT
FIND THAT SOMETHING THAT’LL MAKE YOU BELIEVE.

FORGET THE WAY IT FELT,
AND FIND IT IN YOURSELF TO OPEN UP YOUR HEART
AND MAKE IT EASY ON YOURSELF.
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS ALONE
I MUST ADMIT ONE THING.
I SAVOR ALL THE TIME WE SPENT.
DON’T GIVE UP ON ME.

THIS IS ON YOUR HEAD
‘CAUSE I CARE TOO MUCH TO SAY GOODBYE!

Hostage

Written By: 0 for 4

JUST RIP MY HEART OUT AND HOLD IT HOSTAGE.
I AM SO SCARED OF WHAT I’LL BECOME.
THIS IS THE NIGHT I WILL REALIZE
YOU WEREN’T THE ONE.

I CANNOT BREATHE WHEN YOU SAY
I NEVER FELT THAT WAY.
I ALWAYS SAID THAT LIFE GOES ON.
I JUST CAN’T SHAKE THIS, I MUST HOLD ON.

I’LL SAVE YOU FROM YOUR FUCKED UP REASONS
AND SMACK SOME SENSE INTO YOUR HEAD.
AND WHEN YOUR DREAMS BECOME NIGHTMARES,
YOU’LL THINK HARD ABOUT WHAT I SAID.

BELIEVE IT WHEN I SAY THIS:
HE’S OVER YOU, IT’S TIME TO QUIT.
AND WHEN IT’S DONE, I’LL BE THERE
AND TREAT YOU RIGHT, THIS I SWEAR.

The Arsonist

Written By: 0 for 4

BREATHE DEEP AND FILL YOUR LUNGS.
SAY GOODBYE, HE WON’T LIVE FOR LONG.
SHE THOUGHT HE WAS THE BEST FOR HER.
BRUISED AND BEAT,
THINGS JUST AREN’T WHAT THEY WERE.
ONE DAY I’LL MAKE YOU SEE HE’S KILLING YOU.
HE’S NOT FIT TO BREATHE,
AND I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU’RE HOLDING ON.
RUN AWAY NOW, RUN AWAY,
RUN AWAY, RELEASE AGGRESSION.

SO AS YOUR LIFE BEGINS TO CRASH,
WATCH YOUR BODY SPREAD TO ASH.
AND DON’T FORGET THE WAY THINGS WERE.
ENGULFED IN FLAMES YOU’LL SCREAM MY NAME.

ONE DAY I’LL MAKE YOU SEE HE’S KILLING YOU.
HE’S NOT FIT TO BREATHE,
AND YOU SHOULD LET GO, HIS LIFE YOU HOLD.
AND TORCH HIS HOUSE, IT’S REVENGE YOU NEED.

I’LL SHOW YOU WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME.
YOUR BODY’S WORTH A CENT OR THREE.
AND DON’T FORGET THESE WORDS I SAY,
YOUR ACTIONS WILL BRING YOUR FINAL DAY.

BURN HIS HOUSE, EXULT AGGRESSION.
HE WON’T FEEL A THING, AND
IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO LET GO.
