Additional Info:

“It’s a long way to Georgia,” from small town Lancaster, Pennsylvania, home of Negative Space. With the experience of over 2,000 concerts, this once naïve bar band has exploded into a collective force emerging from their struggles: defining the difference between the end of adolescence and the beginning of up-and-coming songwriters.

Negative Space has reached the pinnacle in their songwriting with songs that deliver guitar-driven rock with the lyrics of maturity that reach fans young and old. Their slick blend of mainstream rock and indie-pop hooks are delivered with punk energy. Their style unites the mature driven rock songs of the likes of Foo Fighters and Three Doors Down with the energy and stage show of Green Day.

“Storylines,” Negative Space’s first full-length record, is proof of more than just personal growth and redemption. The album’s stellar production was under the direction of producer Kirk Kelsey (Creed, 3 Doors Down). Immediately after hearing the band’s material, Kirk agreed to take on the project. The band lived, ate, slept, tracked, and mixed in his home studio located in Atlanta, Georgia.

Written as an autobiography, the album addresses many of the trials, ups and downs the band has been through together. “How would you know what glory, success, and happiness are if you don't know what things like failure, loss, and fear bring? We've been overwhelmed by debts, changed our share of transmissions, and tires…gotten our hands dirty. Whether having to choose which bill is more important to pay for the month or dealing with the loss of friends that are dear to us, we've had to overcome it all together.”, says frontman Josh Nice. Resonating with listeners is the sense of the band's understated vulnerability throughout, which is told through guitar layers, hooks, and commercial appeal. Some songs sound like letters from a jilted lover. Others read like an advice column or even a diary page cluttered with near confessions of torn personal beliefs.

Musically and lyrically, ''Storylines'' proves that their songwriting, their aggressive show, and style are not simply used as cheerleading methods or sideshow distractions.
The album has quickly become an undeniable push-off point for Negative Space into mainstream and crossover audiences.

Negative Space has tested, hard earned road experience winning fans from Vermont to as far south as Key West. Sharing the stage with bands like 3 Doors Down, Fuel, Lit, Breaking Benjamin, Saliva, and Seether only lend to their credibility. In support of their new album they will be touring through the East Coast and the Midwest throughout 2009.
