Feeling a bit camera shy


Lead man David Lunsford made his debut with the release of his solo EP, "Desperate Silence", in the fall of 2000. Desperate Silence received rave reviews and with the hit single “Breathe Away” playing on full rotation on nationally known Effect Radio. “Breathe Away” was the most requested of any Indie band in the history of the station.

All But Screaming was formed in Montana's Flathead Valley in 2002 when David sought out other musicians to join him on a full time basis. The current lineup is as follows: David Lunsford, Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar sings with such passion that you would think he is having a seizure. His vocals will haunt you with emotion bringing the audience to the point of simultaneous tears and laughter. His brother Shane Lunsford Bass/Vocals plays with such authority and drive that it will shake the deepest part of you, the dread locked swinging stage show will pummel you to the floor with soaring backing vocals. Josh Misener Guitar / Vocals weaves screaming vocal melodies with distorted delay and spacious wonder as if painting a masterpiece on a canvas of sound. Jake Niederhauser, Drums, pounds out grooves that are so huge and nasty that he should be punished. How such speed, and earth jarring, cataclysmic clamor can be contained in one human beings execution is beyond comprehension. One must experience this first hand to fully understand. All have been involved with bands in the past and countless studio recordings.
The band, not limited to specific settings, has played 200 + shows from 2003-06 to a wide range of listeners from Clubs to High Schools in support of their 2003 released full-length album,” Maybe They’re Right”. In June of 2004 ABS packed up their gear and moved to the Midwest to be closer to larger cities such as Chicago, Kansas City, Minneapolis, etc. They have played alongside of such acts as Silvertide, Kings X, Shortbus, 10 Years, Home Grown, Jani Lane (Warrant), Kids in the Way, Stephen Pearcy, Dizmas, Stroke 9 and more, receiving an amazing response along the way.
2006 has launched ABS to the next level. In April ABS competed against 200 other bands at the XMG Music Showcase in Chicago in front of major labels Island/Def Jam, TVT, and Jive and taking 1st place in the process. From there they went on to take 1st place in the Veishea Battle of the Bands at Iowa State University later that month to 3000 plus attendees. Currently ABS is in the top 3 running for the Cornerstone Music Festival New Band Showcase, and have already been awarded a spot at this years Sonshine Music Festival.
ABS is currently storming the Midwest supporting their freshly released EP “If Beauty Comes At All” and a brand new single "Build It Up". ABS is already writing new materials as they pursue the future with high expectation.
