Hailing from Montana, No Cigar is an alternative rock band that blossomed from the inspiration and frustration of each member’s different life experiences. Seeded by 3 years of heavy touring and recording with Colorado-based band the Photo Atlas, former drummer Nick Miles has now abandoned his place behind the drum kit to challenge himself as front-man on this new project.
No Cigar fits right in between the catchy appeal of pop punk and the grit of early punk rock – a great compromise between the eclectic arrangements of Alkaline Trio and fresh hooks a la Rise Against. The band thankfully strays from the over-produced aesthetics too often associated with the genre, following D.I.Y. ethics and self-producing their own material in order to achieve a more organic and personal sound, but also to be emotionally closer to their art and to the ideals behind this band.
“No Cigar just keeps getting better and better.”
Chris Jorgensen – Billings Gazette
“No Cigar’s debut studio album “Monsters” holds classic tales of dissent and individuality surfaced with loud guitars, crashing cymbals and grainy vocals. It’s old-school punk rock and makes no argument towards the contrary.”
“Powerful vocals and razor-sharp lyrics”
