Following the release of their sophomore album, “Facemelter”, the band found themselves in need of a new drummer, and in early 2009 Brian Donovan (also of Furnace) took over on drums. This ushered in a new era for Now Denial and was followed by the release of the “Fuck Now Denial” EP, a split 7″ with Get Laid, and a handful of weekends and tours out of New England. In 2012, Now Denial won the award for “Best Punk/Hardcore Act” in The Boston Phoenix / WFNX’s annual Best Music Poll, and was also nominated for “Punk Artist of the Year” at the 25th annual Boston Music Awards.
The band spent early 2013 writing and demoing new material, but ultimately shelved the new songs and focused on other efforts including Raw Blow and Big Kill. Aside from a couple of 15th anniversary shows in 2017, the band has been dormant since.
