We'd like to announce we are looking for a DRUMMER! Now often this is preceded by the announcement of a departing band member...but we aren't right in the heads. Nate Dorman has been an asset to the band from the day he joined and brought with him a much needed laid back ~lets jam and see what happens~ attitude along with him. Without going into too much detail, lets just say sometimes a career requires more time than a serious band needs. Nate will remain a part of Not Yet Lost even sporadically when his new job begins and has agreed to provide us the freedom to search for a drummer that can assume his percussive duties. Nate is a stellar musician and he'll always be a part of Not Yet Lost.
Not Yet Lost is a band originating from the heart of Maine. With various musical influences such as Tool, Alice in Chains, Faith No More, and Chevelle they tend to break the rules when it comes to their musical creations. As a result, they refuse to fall into a specific musical classification, feeling that to do so would limit their creativity. Currently unsigned, they have a 6 song self titled EP just released on May 3rd 2016--each track showcasing a variant style of rock. Additionally, Not Yet Lost have previously released a 4 song EP in 2013 under their previous band name 'The Secret of Esrever' entitled 'The Bleeding Skies'. The first song on the EP "Reverse" is where the former band name originated. Esrever being reverse spelled...in reverse. The EP contained studio releases of the bands songs "Nothing More", "Kidney Punch (Not Today)", and "The Question Within". Also, the band released a very well received 11 song full length album entitled 'Cryptozoic' (also under their former name 'The Secret of Esrever') in July 2014. November 2014 saw the band part ways with drummer Randy Hamm and they were joined by drummer Nate Dorman. During this personnel change the band felt it was an appropriate time to change the name of the band to a much more marketable and easier to pronounce 'Not Yet Lost'. May 2016 saw the departure of bassist Josh Sabine who was quickly replaced by Ryan Schoppee in June. Now with the release of their new EP, the band is excited for a selection of gigs and acoustic dates while beginning work on new material!
