Nothing but a Nightmare - Music Interview
Nothing but a Nightmare was founded in 2017 by five high school best friends in Langhorne, PA. Offering a mix of alternative, rock and pop, the band has seen some amazing highs in their short time together. In 2018 they released their first two singles, "The Girl from Scandinavia" and "Down That Road No More." The music video for "The Girl from Scandinavia" was a hit with local teens and the press. In February 2019, the band released their debut album "Nostalgia" which received streaming success. Following up, in May 2019, the band opened for Andy Grammer at the "Wilmington Flower Market Festival" and during that same summer, they released three new singles including their top streamed song and music video "Can't Fix Stupid." After a short hiatus the band returned with their latest singles "Sittin' in the Corner (Friday Night in Boston)" and "Living in a Lie."

All of us have always played so we just really wanted to play as friends, but eventually it turned into a career for us.

Panic! at the Disco. The band's high energy and Brendon Urie's positivity is something we take pride in carrying out.
