History

Some Never Sleep was formed in early 2006. Their first show was played in May of 2006 at The Brickhouse in Phoenix, Arizona with their original line up featuring Nick Whitaker (Vocals), Jeff Tretta (Guitar), Travis Laux (Guitar/Keyboard/Programming), Kyle Greenwood (Guitar), Nick Monroy (Bass), and Josh Cutler (Drums). They recorded a three song demo including: "Wallflower's Dance", "Letters", and "A Heart So Abruptly Stopped" at The Conservatory of Recording Arts[2] in Tempe, Arizona. This line up continued until November 2006. At this time, the band parted with Nick Whitaker and Jeff Tretta. Matthew Romero was brought in to fulfill lead vocal and guitar duties[3]. In early 2007, Kyle Greenwood was replaced by Scott Ewing and the band recorded a demo with this line up consisting of the songs "Negative Increment" and "Martyr". Soon after, Kevin Birmingham replaced Nick Monroy on bass. The current line up played their first show on August 24, 2007 at The Cell Block in Gilbert, Arizona. Also in August 2007, the band entered Villain Studios[4] and recorded their debut EP with Byron Filson. The EP was released in mid-September of 2007. The band returned to Avalon studios in 2009 and recorded the next group of songs that would later become The Omission of Time. The album was released in 2010. In June of 2010, Matthew Romero announced that he would be leaving the band to pursue his other musical interests. The band has since continued on as a 4 piece.
