U p and coming local rock band No Reason has been playing in the area lately.

Founded in January 2011 as just a couple friends getting together to play a couple of covers at a birthday party, they are now played shows with as many as 2000 people in the audience.

The band has just finished recording the first single off their first full-length album at Dancing Pepper Studios in Nazareth, PA, entitled “Every Path Has a Purpose.”

The band consists of Andrew Hartzell on lead vocals, Adam Delgado playing the lead guitar, Travis Humza playing the rhythm guitar, Mike Oleniacz on bass guitar and vocals, and Christian Jackson banging the drums and singing some vocals.

“We have been together as a full band for I think 3 years now, but to be honest it feels like forever.” says Mike Oleniacz, bassist for the band.

“We are always writing new music. This new album will consist of 9 of our own songs and a cover that we spent a lot of time making our own.” Oleniacz goes on to say.

According to Christian Jackson, drummer for the band, “We are making a lot of progress on the album and hope to have it done before the summer comes!”

The new song “Every Path Has a Purpose” blends punk, rock and metal as well as adding a catchy, sing along style chorus.

The band also does covers, including a cover of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.”

This past November, the band played Reckless Fest II, a sold-out show with over 2,000 people in attendance at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, PA.

They opened for head-lining bands such as Asking Alexandria. They cite as their primary influences All that Remains, Sevendust, and Emmure.

“Playing that show was a dream come true for me,” says Jackson. He continued, “I never in my wildest dreams did I think that we would ever play a sold out arena show. It just goes to show that hard work, dedication, and a lot of blood, sweat, and tears really does pay off in the long run.”

The band members say they were treated like rock stars, with many audience members asking for autographs and pictures.

Future concerts will be scheduled in the summer months.
