IMPORTANT ONCE NOTHING UPDATE!!!
Hello everyone. As I have been saying for the past few days now, we have some very important things to talk about.
WE ARE NOT BREAKING UP!!!
many of you know, Once Nothing has been around for quite some time now.
9 years to be exact. People have come and people have gone. All have
been equally important in building this monster of a music group and
touring machine. We've had the honor of meeting all of you listeners
and fans, and have been able to take so much from the experiences we
have shared with you all. We truly love you. You mean the world to us,
and without you guys none of this would be possible. Its your coming to
shows, buying cds and tshirts, headbanging, being goofy as crap, and
giving us your floors to sleep on, etc. that have made this something
worth doing. With that being said, I would like to officially announce
that after December, Giuseppe and Steve will be leaving us. There is no
bad blood or calosed relationships. They both have just felt that it is
their time to part ways with this band. Here is what they wanted to say:
friends and family that have supported this band throughout the ages:
i've had the most amazing 4 years of my life spending time with
absolutely amazing people meeting new friends and playing music that
meant the world to me. I just had a change of heart and feel called to
explore the unknown caverns of life's ever-glorious adventures. It's
been one unbelievable ride, and I (by NO means) will ever lose my
passion for making music i love. I just felt that God was calling me in
a different direction. I'm not sure what that means at this very
second, but i'm sure it will reveal itself in the near future. It's
nothing personal with any of the guys in this band, i love them all to
death and will continue to support this band no matter what. My heart
is just not into this touring lifestyle any longer, or this genre of
music in general. I would be cheating Once Nothing out of a quality
record if i were to stick around and write, and i'm sure my attitude
did not persuade the other members of once nothing that i was capable
of doing so. I will continue to make music a large part of my life,
whatever that may be. So i pass my torch on to whoever feels that they
will have the passion that i once had for the dreams and aspirations
that this band of amazing people seek. (drummers, inquire within. I
will personally be reviewing your submissions.) To Todd, Geoff, Steve,
Josh, Jordan, Hough daddy, Dave, and Carroll, Thank you so much for
letting me be a part of this and share the amazing things God has laid
out in front of us. I'll always love you guys. To the friends i've made
during my travels, God bless you all for staying faithful and believing
in this band and i pray now and always that you will continue to
support and believe in this band. I wish you all the very best.
Love and blessings always,
Giuseppe (deg deg) (gypsy) (joey) (G-baby) (G-unit)"
this is weird to write. No one ever joins something with the intention
of leaving it, and yet here I am, after almost 4 years and thousands of
miles chasing a dream now walking away from my safe zone. When someone
tells you that if you believe in something to stand true to it, my
advice is to believe them, and if your heart isn't into something,
don't do it. And so with that said, as much as I love touring,
performing, and being in a band, my heart isn't in to Once Nothing
anymore, and so I'm leaving. I hate the idea of spending time with and
around something that I can't be truthful to you and myself about. I'm
not sure what's in the future for me, I guess we'll wait and find out.
Thanks to the friends I've made, I feel like we are friends outside of
Once Nothing and expect that to continue. Also thank you to Todd,
Josh, Dave, Giuseppe, Geoff, Jordan, CI Records, Solid State Records,
Chad Johnson, Mike Milford, the bands we've toured with and everyone
who believed in us and supported me in this. Please come out to the
last tour I'm doing in December, it would mean a lot to see you there!
God bless, I love you, see you when I see you.
love Giuseppe and Steve very much and wish them all the luck in the
world with their future endeavors. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come out to all
of the shows we have scheduled for December in order to see our friends
off. THEY WILL be doing our Christmas tour!
Please keep checking back for more updates as we will have lots of them in the near future.
Geoff and O.N.
