THE ALMOST PREMIERE NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “NO, I DON’T”
Watch It Now, Exclusively on Ransom.tvTooth & Nail Records and The Almost present the world premiere of the band’s new music video for “No, I Don’t” exclusively at Ransom.tv!

“In life you want to be clean and pure and perfect. It’s impossible, but you really try. And everyone around you thinks you’re no different than you were a year ago, and that statement and it really guts you, but you’re really trying. That’s what the song’s about,” says vocalist Aaron Gillespie of the song and video, filmed in Charlotte, NC by RANSOM director Kevin Adamson (Dustin Kensrue, Skillet).

“No, I Don’t” is featured on The Almost’s latest album MONSTER MONSTER which is available in stores and online now, and can be downloaded on both iTunes and Amazon MP3.

 The Almost have turned a solo-project into a full-fledged band. Their latest album MONSTER MONSTER is completely collaborative effort, melding their talents into a whole that was more than the sum of its individual parts. Together they’ve created music that combines radio-ready rock, 80’s new wave, classic garage punk and more. The album is their sophomore full-length, following 2007’s SOUTHERN WEATHER.

The Almost is Aaron Gillespie (Vocals), Dusty Redmon (Guitar), Jay Vilardi (Guitar), Alex Aponte (Bass) and Joe Musten (Drums).

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
