First formed in 2003 No Quarter has been kicking along in some shape or form for almost 15 years. We are a 5 Piece Punk Rock band based in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales and our music consists of fast 90's style punk rock. After some very early line up changes and then early recordings in 2004 with the original singer Cameron things started to pick up a bit. Then due to family commitments in 2005 Cameron had to leave which gave Chris the opportunity to move to vocals and Micka to join as the drummer.
It was in that year with the new line up our first No More Guns, No More Blood was recorded and released. It was a mixed bag. With 4 of the 7 songs turning out ok but it was what it was. It was recorded and mixed in 4 days, with the studio next door to a bottle shop and back packers hostel so it was just a party. After it's release we No Quarter gigged pretty full on right up until 2008 enjoying some great shows in the hunter valley, central coast, Canberra and north coast. During 2008 Chris eventually moved to Brisbane and it was at this stage things slowed down until the recording of lodestar in 2009 - 2010 and its release in November 2010.
After releasing the Lodestar ep in 2010 things were pretty quiet again for a while, jamming in Dan's shed or at Micka's house just to catch up as Chris now live a fair distance from the rest of us. In 2014 Micka and Chris started working on new songs which turned out to be the beginning of our upcoming album Freedom. It's been a slow process. Paris kind of just vanished just after we did all the guitar demos for the album leaving Lachlan (Darcy) to take his place. We'd known darcy ever since our early gigs at the Percy in Singleton and he's always remained close to the band after playing in other bands and recording the guitar demos for us. It was a logical and easy step for him to replace Paris.We all have full time jobs, houses to pay off, some if us have kids etc so during the Freedom recording Matt and Dan decided they couldn't commit their time to it anymore. There was no harsh feelings though and by this stage we'd had alot of involvement from our other friends Paul and Joshua who used to play gigs with us in a band called New Sedition. So again it was it easy transition for the new guys.
At the moment we're just released our first full length album Freedom through Melodic Punk Style records. We're currently jamming all our new songs and old as Josh and Paul get up to speed before commencing gigs again early next year. So No Quarter has been a long drawn out hell of a time. Can't wait to start kickin it again with everybody!!!
