"Something for nothing"

"All For Nothing are the culmination of four like-minded individuals with a mutual love for good vibes. Their approach to punk rock is one of laid -back nonchalance."

"Waterdown's All For Nothing are about to change the way you think about small town power chords and spiked hair"

"In a genre filled with grotesque egos, AFN really knows how to defy the rules."

"The band are renowned for their stage presence, often encouraging the crowd to participate as a "fifth" memeber of the band. These antics usually allow the crowd to experience the show at a monumental level. Traditions over the past two years have included throwing miniature guitars into the crowd, dressing up as Ninja Turtles, and dazzling the crowds' expectations with back flips. However, these tactics are merely a small taste of the clever moves the band is able to pull off, making the audience feel significantly more special at every show."

"While most bands struggle to come up with one decent song, All For Nothing has somehow managed to create a mind-blowing arsenal of hits. Keep your ears pressed firmly to the ground (and to your speakers as All For Nothing blasts out of them), because the pending album from AFN is sure to be a fine piece of music." - Silhouette's a&e magazine

All for Nothing is a band hailing from Burlington, Ontario that have already proven to be a strong force within the music industry. The band consists of four very talented individuals who understand how to capture the crowd through their songs and performances. All For Nothing is an excellent example of the punk rock genre and the group has an undeniable recipe for success.

The band had its inception in 2004 when lead singer/guitarist Matt Harris and guitarist Chris Donaldson got together and made their first EP. However All for Nothing as we know them today didnt arise until 2005. The other two members, Drummer Scott Karstoff and Bassist Josh Brown joined during this time. Their common interest for the music sparked a long lasting chemistry. In only 5 short years, the band has been able to release 2 studio Eps to date, and most recently, the full-length album Last Call, has even made its way into HMV, iTunes and Since the album's release, the band hired on Oskar Gdalski as drummer and All For Nothing has been as strong and energetic as ever.
The recordings repressent the band well, but it is in fact, their highly energetic live sets that set them apart.

All for Nothing really epitomizes exactly what a entertaining rock band should be. The group takes no short cuts with their live performances and give 110 % in every atmosphere. Theyre high energy shows, filled with great music, and hilarious comedic moments is enough to get people off their seats and ready to have a good time. The bands energy is truly contagious and audiences are hooked instantly.

Dont be surprised if you happen to see back flips, ninja turtle costumes, objects being smashed and audiences chanting along onstage with the band. With that being said, aside from all the funny business, the music still shines through and is what the band is remembered for. They have created an unmatchable show fit for all ages and one that will leave you wanting more. Having played around the GTA and some of the top clubs in Toronto, including the Horseshoe Tavern, Lees Palace, 102.1 The Edge and The Sound Academy, they are ready to take their show around, giving all of Canada the opportunity to partake in the festivities.

In short, All For Nothing is an excellent example of the punk rock genre, and through their captivating stage presence, wild antics and mind blowing style, they completely stand out in an industry overflowing with mediocrity.


ALL FOR NOTHING = The Style, The Fun, The Party, The Show.
