Gritty ROCK from the Pacific Northwest.

THE WITHOUT is a creative venture between five lifelong friends. Their sound is highly influenced by the grit and vigor of their hometown, Portland, OR. Delivering a unifying sound composed of elements of rock, post-hardcore, punk and perhaps even a touch of thrash, they are sonically brash, with a message of urgency and action. THE WITHOUT attempt to create music without ego.

"With “Factions” I came away realising it was an EP full of surprises. Perhaps this gives the impression I approach everything I listen to with an insurmountable level of scepticism but in the ways, newer artists could be faulted “the without” simply cannot. Even looking past the high production value, at its very heart this EP is superbly crafted, hooks never fail to draw you in, but you better be ready for the fistfuls of grit, attitude and passion these lads have so brilliantly encapsulated into their style."

"With the closing ‘Rat Party’ I was saddened that it is almost over but still sat smiling faced as the beckoning lines, riffs and the whole shabang rattles, rumbles, and triumphantly thuds victoriously down your ear canal in a way that makes Caesar’s return to Rome look pathetic."

"Opening song, Play Tricks, should totally be getting a lot of radio airplay right now. Maybe it does somewhere, I don’t know, but it is by far so much more satisfying than the majority of bands getting the attention these days. With its aggressive melodies combining modern hooks with an air of punk/hardcore greatness floating around, this would surely appeal to a lot of folks out there."

"THE WITHOUT sounds like a combination of bands like Every Time I Die and Cancer Bats with a clear influence of the likes of Deftones and Soundgarden. It’s truly an intriguing combination that is brought to life by their excellent debut EP." -

"The Without are definitely one to keep an eye out for and hopefully will become one of the new icons for other bands to follow. Until then, get listening to Factions, you won’t regret it." -
