Prior to forming Nuclear Honey, Reaves Greer and Gray Henderson played in Raleigh, NC based bands, Ascella Vega and Sign of the Rhino as drummer and guitarist respectively. After each band came to an end, they decided to take a new, more natural approach to music where they would be managing the instruments in which their songwriting takes place. This moved Reaves out from behind the skins to join Gray on guitar. Each having written a number of new songs between Sign of the Rhino and the formation of Nuclear Honey in late Fall of 2011, they leisurely recorded four songs with longtime friend Dave Bartholomew in the front office of his family's tombstone engraving business. The four tracks were released in July of 2012 as their debut EP appropriately entitled, "Tombstone Sessions."
After releasing "Tombstone Sessions", Gray and Reaves felt it was time to expand their sound. In the summer of 2012, they began playing with a rotating cast of local musicians. After settling on a lineup including Raleigh natives Webb Bostic (bass), Michael Day (keyboards), and Kenan Jernigan (drums), the collection of songs grew and the band launched a fundraising campaign via Kickstarter.com to record a new album. Successful in their fundraising, the band released the 7-track album, "Nobody Panic" on June of 2013. "Nobody Panic" is the embodiment of their evolved, full-band, rock and roll sound while maintaining the empathetic tones that shaped the former folk-rock duo.
