NeverWake / Bio

NeverWake is a sinew of rock and metal. Haunting dark guitar harmonies, heavy breakdowns, and melodic vocals are forged together creating a new sound where the listener is left in a quandary whether to bang their head or sing along. Described as “smashing 'Bullet For My Valentine' and 'Trivium' together NeverWake opens a new path for listeners and bridges the gap between hard rock and metal. NeverWake consists of Johnny DiCarlo on lead vocals/lead guitar, Marcus Giannamore on drums/vocals, George Scott on bass guitar/vocals and Justin Sanford lead guitar/vocals.

The artists struck a chord with one another that echoed a mutual artistic appreciation that inevitably led to Moyer and NeverWake agreeing to work together. Earlier in 2015 NeverWake was chosen by the AEG Live promoters to play on the first ever ReverbNation stage at the annual hard rock and heavy metal music festival Carolina Rebellion. Kicking off the weekend for 60,000 fans, NeverWake had the incredible opportunity to share the spotlight with bands such as Korn, Slipknot, Nonpoint, Periphery and many more. In April, NeverWake rocked alongside various artists from Iron Maiden, Disturbed and Twisted Sister, (The Foundry), at The Hard Rock Cafe in Pittsburgh and had multiple shows at the SXSW Heart of Texas Rock Fest. The band has also played The ReverbNation Stage for the Millennium Music Conference Showcase, Launch Music Conference, Altar Bar in Pittsburgh and several other festivals, conferences, and venues local and nationwide.

NeverWake's second studio album is "SleepWalker," crafted at Innovation Studios with producer/engineer Mike Ofca and mastered under legendary engineer Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound. Their debut full-length album "Vitality" was released in August 2011 and the single "Cut You Down" on Halloween of 2012.
