Biography

An unoccupied stage presents itself in front of hundreds of anticipating faces that have situated themselves in every crevice of the venue. The usual chatter of eager concert goers indistinguishably hums from wall to wall while fans, both new and old, gather shoulder to shoulder to prepare themselves for what can only be described as an unforgettable performance from four ordinary guys turned local heroes. Without warning, the lights cut out. As the first dark figure appears on stage, the side conversation throughout the venue begins to cease, only to be replaced by unparamount cheering. Synth introductions start and in sync lights shoot from one corner of the venue to the next. The stage lights come on. Standing on stage are five men who are nothing less than the definition of "dressed to kill". This is Nothing Still.

Emilio Hernandez (vocals), Tom Fedke (bass), Patrick Slusser (drums), Anthony Ficken (lead guitar) and Matt Kleemann (guitar) are the embodiment of this 5-piece electronic alternative pop band formed in 2000. Nothing Still’s unprecedented sound is indescribable to anyone whose ears have not yet been graced by this unmatched eclectic blend of genres. Their unparallel combination of synth, rock and pop with a dash of a dark side (think The Cure), makes this band a breath of fresh air from other generic synth-rock acts.

It is not just their sound that sets them apart. Nothing Still were proclaimed the "hardest working band in St. Louis" by Riverfront Times for a reason. It is their unworldly work ethics, continual innovation, and drive to succeed that has gotten them where they are today. With 700+ attendance at headlining shows, biweekly video Podcasts on iTunes, a full autobiographical documentary, radio play, inconceivable hours in the studio, and unrelenting self-promotion, it's no wonder why Nothing Still is quickly becoming a household name.

"A Black Tie Affair" is the second SGM Records release from Nothing Still. The entire EP flows from beginning to end, offering breaths of air during interludes where Ficken displays his instrumental versatility. The band showcases their range of innovation throughout this album. From the incorporation of strings in their single "Magnum Girl" to the inclusion of remixes (courtesy of fellow SGM Records label mate RandomDYAD) to the enhanced CD feature that includes the band's documentary.

In between recording and headlining at local venues, Nothing Still has been catching attention by opening for numerous national acts such as Men, Women and Children, Shiny Toy Guns, Clear Static, Kill Hannah, We Are The Fury, Letter Kills, Flickerstick, Rock n' Roll Soldiers, Lola Ray, Comasoft, Echo Nine, Fun Club, and Horse the Band; as well as performing twice at the Vans Warped Tour.

Even while having so much under their belts, all five remain stay true to their art as well as their fans. At every show, Nothing Still members remain in the venue with genuine smiles on their faces and give hugs, sign autographs, take photographs, and make small talk until every light comes on and security begins clearing the very last lingering audience members out. This is the source of their success. The appreciation and love they possess for their fans alongside their unmatched composition of sound will inevitably take them to the top.
