Nothing More is an American rock band from San Antonio, Texas. Formed in 2003, the band spent much of the 2000s recording independent albums, struggling to maintain a steady lineup or attract record label interest. By the end of the decade, the band's long-time drummer, Jonny Hawkins, decided to switch to being the band's frontman and lead vocalist, stabilizing the band's core lineup along with long-time guitarist Mark Vollelunga and bassist Daniel Oliver. The band self-funded and recorded their fourth studio album, Nothing More, over the course of 3 years and gained the attention of Eleven Seven Music record label for the release. The album became the band's breakthrough release, with multiple charting singles, including "This is the Time (Ballast)", which hit number 1 on the Mediabase Active Rock chart and number 2 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, and "Mr. MTV", Jenny", and "Here's to the Heartache" all charting in the top 15 of the latter chart.
In 2017, the band released their fifth studio album, second on a major record label, The Stories We Tell Ourselves. The lead single, "Go to War", outperformed the prior singles, topping the Mainstream Rock chart, while the band received three Grammy Award nominations for the release, Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for "Go to War", and Best Rock Album for The Stories We Tell Ourselves.
