No Project One-Connected

It used to be every year we hear some prestigious music critic loudly proclaim that rock music is dead. It was happening consistently for about forty years, and yet rock n roll persists. Well, I’m here to tell you nice and early in 2023 that rock ain’t goin’ nowhere. Not so long as bands like No Project One are here to keep it alive. The … Continue reading No Project One-Connected
