Next up on our Dame-Nation 2012 series is yet another local Chicago band, 4WITHOUT!
These guys are pretty new. So new, in fact, that they don’t even have a demo yet! All we curious music lovers have to go by for now are a few songs posted to YouTube and a somewhat uninformative facebook page, but don’t let that be a reason to write this band off. Despite what little this band has for us to hear, they do show incredible promise, and I, for one, am excited to see where this band goes and what Dame-Nation attendees think of them!
4WITHOUT aren’t your generic hard rock band. There’s something about their sound that’s refreshing and unique. There’s a good amount of old school rock sensibility here, but not your general classic metal sound (Judas Priest, AC/DC, etc.) that a number of bands these days are going back to. Instead, it’s a bit closer to classic rock. Combine that with a bit of crunchy hard rock, some fun guitar work, and a bit of an alternative edge and you have 4WITHOUT.
Check out their song “Move On” below:
Needless to say, the music needs a little polish, but given that they don’t even have a demo out, this is easily forgivable. The band’s got plenty of time to perfect their sound, and with a little work and the right production, they can go a long way. So give ‘em a chance, and maybe one day, you can tell people you knew them before they even released a demo!
