Not Tonight Josephine begins recording debut album with Taylor Larson

By on September 1, 2014


Tampa, FL post-hardcore quintet Not Tonight Josephine have begun the recording of their debut full-length with From First To Last’s Taylor Larson. The record will serve as a follow up to last year’s “Common Gold” EP and caps a busy summer for the band who joined the Vans Warped Tour line-up in Florida as well as releasing a new music video for ‘IHateRollerCoastersAnyway’.

Forming in 2008, Not Tonight Josephine have had six years in which to perfect their distinctively infectious take on the post-hardcore genre. During that time the guys have picked up an impressive number of accolades, not least of which has been sharing the stage with some of alternative rock’s most prestigious names – A Day To Remember, Underoath, Ice Nine Kills, Rise Against, New Found Glory and The Colour Morale to name a few. Aside from relentless touring, the band have found the time to build up a devoted international fan base with their powerful and impassioned EP’s. The most recent of these, 2013’s “Common Gold”, saw the band receive almost unilateral praise from fans and critics, being recorded and produced under the guidance of James Paul Wisner (Underoath, Hands Like Houses, Paramore.)

With Scott Vallina (guitar) and Danny Garry (vocals) joining just prior to the recording of “Common Gold”, an entirely new light has been shed on the band. Simultaneously grander and more raw than previous releases, “Common Gold” screams fervent honesty and is only the beginning of the next chapter for Not Tonight Josephine.

The band’s relentless touring across 2014 so far has paid off, with a quickly growing reputation in the post-hardcore scene and a keen fan base to boot. With the release of the new video for ‘IHateRollercoastersAnyway’, an appearance at Warped Tour and the new album to boot, the year is only getting more exciting for fans of Not Tonight Josephine.
