The Hopeful and Reckless EP



We started Giving Up Nevada in Greensboro, NC, in 2009 before any of us knew how to play any instruments. Weird, right? For the next couple of years we taught ourselves to play by listening to our favorite bands like Blink-182, Nirvana, Mayday Parade, Kings of Leon, My Chemical Romance, This Providence, The Maine, Taking Back Sunday, Boxcar Racer, Fall Out Boy, Brighten, Valencia, The Runaways, There For Tomorrow, and many others.

After we were comfortable with our instruments, we began writing our own songs and looking into recording and playing live. We began playing live on April 20, 2011, and our demo EP The Hopeful and Reckless was recorded in July of 2011 in Houston, Texas at Wrenn House Studios. We played our first official show at The Somewhere Else Tavern in Greensboro, North Carolina on August 5, 2011.

Our first EP was extremely pop-punk driven, and only shows one side of our music. After we wrote our first songs, we learned and improved in our song writing ability and have adapted to a more mature sound. We focus a lot on the song writing aspect and less on spitting out songs because we need songs to play. Staying true to who we are as people has always been a priority within our band. Our newest songs, that we play live but haven't recorded, represent the fact that we are progressing as a band and that we plan to continue growing within our music.

We would like to take our band as far as we possibly can. We look forward to playing as many shows in front of as many people as we can to reach out and make a difference with our music. We want to impact others just like the bands we listed earlier have impacted us and influenced us to play music. Our ultimate goal is to be a professionally touring band and to get to do what we love for the rest of our lives!
