For Another Lost Year, 2013 is off to a good start. With a strong musical direction and a very long tour line up, Another Lost Year is ready to make their own mark on the Midwest music scene but the band refuses to take any conventional road towards success.
Another Lost Year talked about the process of gaining success in the Midwest music scene. "lot of days not eating, showering, sleeping, we took the ground and pound approach, I think people appreciate that. We were told no so many times, and still get no, but we just kept at it, and things started becoming easier," said members of Another Lost Year.
