Not Tonight Josephine is currently in the studio with From First to Last guitarist/producer Taylor Larson to begin work on their debut full-length album. From First to Last, most notably of “Note to Self” fame, recently re-formed with a mix of old and new members. They also ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund their new EP. For more information on Not Tonight Josephine and the recording process for the debut album, check out the press release below:
Tampa, FL post-hardcore quintet Not Tonight Josephine have begun the recording of their debut full-length with From First To Last front man 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’.

“Common Gold” EP, available to stream in full via Bandcamp.
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.
