NEVERTHELESS IS NOT “SLEEPING IN”
15 July 2008

Based rock quintet, Nevertheless, who will release its second album, In the Making…, on September 16, 2008, is currently on a radio promo tour in support of its new radio single, “Sleeping In.” However, sleeping in is the last thing the guys are doing on the trip, as they are surprising some of their radio friends around the country, by literally camping on the station grounds, then surprising the radio staff with prepared breakfast when they arrive for work. On Monday, July 7, Nevertheless surprised the staff of RadioU in Columbus, Ohio. The next day (7/8/08), the band journeyed north to Saginaw, Mich., to hang at The Fuse radio station and today, Wednesday, July 9, they visited Shine.FM/WONU in Chicago, Ill. The guys are documenting the trek. Watch the video from day 1 (7/7/08), < a href="http://www.providentcentral.com/Content/emaillink.aspx?MessageID=1415&LinkID=1&UserID=154299">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZP4OcPY4zg, day 2 (7/8/08), http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oht4-4SJzDk and day 3 (7/9/08), http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utqAIca4Uyw.

In the Making…, the upcoming, 11-track record from Nevertheless, was produced by Rob Hawkins (Fireflight, Jackson Waters), and was recorded in Nashville, Tenn. between March and April of 2008.

While showing heart and expressing hope may not be new to Nevertheless’s lyrics, In The Making… is a different and more accessible approach of expression. “I would say the biggest difference, lyrically, is that we pulled even more from our own experiences on In the Making...,” shares lead singer, Joshua Pearson. “On this record, every single song has at least a few lines that hit very close to home. An example would be ‘Sleeping In,’ which was written from a place of insecurity, which I believe to be one of my ugliest opponents, from time to time.” And by highlighting such personal perspectives, In The Making… reeks of raw honesty and thus is the best tool to express its message.

Accepting that the band is young, yet strongly evolving, is the key inspiration for the album title. Pearson explains. “We titled the record In The Making... for two different reasons. First of all, we believe that every single day we are still in the making of becoming the kind of people that God wants us to be. This record is written from personal experiences that we know many people deal with in their everyday life. Every pain and trial, along with every good thing in our lives, pushes us in that direction, and we hope the lyrics convey that point. Second, Nevertheless, as a band, is still in the making of becoming who we want to be. We are constantly learning who we are musically, and as people. This album is a reflection of this point in our lives.”

“The goal for our music is to provide hope and inspire a desire to experience God’s glory,” says Cheek. “I hope people can learn from our songs that no matter what they are going through, and if they don’t know where to turn, just know that there is always hope through Jesus.”

Pearson adds, “I believe that we are called to write about both the light that shines in the darkness, and about the darkness that does not understand it. I believe that honesty always breaks down walls. Healing begins when we are able to, first of all, be honest before God. Secondly, be honest and vulnerable with one another. I hope that our songs reflect this idea, and that, when people listen to Nevertheless, they get a sense that God loves them, and wants to talk to them.”

In the Making… comprises the following eleven tracks (sequence subject to change): “Sleeping In,” “It’s True,” “Cross My Heart,” “It’s No Secret,” “Rest,” “I Needed This,” “Longshot,” “Augustine,” “Topics,” “When I’m Alone” and “Found My Way Back Again.”

Nevertheless is: Joshua Pearson, lead vocals; AJ Cheek, guitar, piano and vocals; Brad Jones, guitar; Adam Rowe, drums; Adam Wann, bass.
