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 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. Additionally, the EP contained studio releases of the bands songs "Nothing More", "Kidney Punch (Not Today)", and "The Question Within". Also, the band released an 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 current drummer Nate Dorman. During this change it felt appropriate as ever to change the band name to a much more marketable and easier to pronounce 'Not Yet Lost'. Now ramping up for an amazing 2015 the band is busier than ever playing shows and writing new material!

Maine Music Community: 

Many of you may remember the band Thai, who played at the 2nd WTOS Battle of the Bands in 2004. Their singer & bass player Brian has been fighting leukemia now for 4 years and could use the help of the Maine music community. If you can help in any way, it'd be appreciated....


Name change in full swing! 

Our name change from 'The Secret of Esrever' to 'Not Yet Lost' is in full swing. It's a bit of a process behind closed doors to get all the things such as websites, media and artwork updated but it's come together nicely so far. We have had to delete our Youtube profile and create a new one, but that's the only hiccup along the way...not too shabby! So, we are glad to say that with our new band name we have some new merch on order! T-shirts and stickers will be arriving shortly! These will be sold at our shows, but if anyone would like one please feel free to message us and we can process the order for you. -Cheers!


Happy New Year! To bring in the new year we are putting our album 'Cryptozoic' on sale down to $5 a copy! grab one HERE at our web store or at CDBaby for the sale price! (CDBaby price will update in the next 24 hours of this post)
