We'd like to officially welcome our new bassist Ryan Schoppee to the Not Yet Lost family! We've had a great time practicing with Ryan and he's picked up our material very quickly. He's excited to be here and get rolling so don't miss his first gig with us on July 16th in Topsham at The 202 Summer Jam!
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!
“Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.”
