In this day and age where hardcore bands come and go with the speed of light NO TURNING BACK are holding true to what they originally set out to do and they're not planning on giving up, ever.
Starting out in 1997 as 16-year olds in the barren south-eastern parts of The Netherlands, music was their only means of venting their anger and frustration of not fitting in, in a world that seemed sick and cold to the bone. Since those days the band has come a long way. Driven by a merciless give-all-take-all attitude, No Turning Back have steadily been building an impressive career touring worldwide and became a household name in hardcore music, with an incredible back catalogue of five full length records, three MCDs, two split EPs and a 7'' EP.
In 2006 the band put out HOLDING ON, marking a turning point in their career. Released on five continents on multiple labels, CD and vinyl, has propelled the band to new levels of relentlessness. Overwhelming feedback from the international press and fans alike only added more fuel to the tour-hungry machine that is No Turning Back. Three North American tours, headline tours in Japan, Brasil and all over Europe hitting major cities like Tokyo, Osaka, Rio, Sao Paulo, NYC, LA, London, Barcelona and more. Being support for Terror, Sick Of It All, Hatebreed, Ignite, Gorilla Biscuits, Bad Brains and many others. Playing festivals all over the world like the Sound and Fury Festival in California, U.S. and the Groezrock festival in Meerhout, Belgium in front of thousands. Culminating in over 220 shows across the globe.
Their gruelling tour schedule would be enough to crush lesser men just by looking at it, but with the release of STRONGER in 2008 No Turning Back decided to up the ante even more. Recorded by Dirk Miers at De Studio and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side STRONGER was supported by what could only be described as a world tour.
The album hit like a bomb and No Turning Back became the first European hardcore band to play exotic locations like Central America, South Africa, China and parts of Asia. Besides that they did another bunch of European and US tours, went back to Mexico and South America and hit up festivals like With Full Force (GER), This Is Hardcore (US) and Ieper Fest (BE). They played in over 50 different countries and sold over 20.000 records in the process. They have numerous video's for their songs up on their myspace page and even more video's of their overwhelming live show documented by their fans on youtube.
As their recognition continues to spread No Turning Back show no signs of slowing down. Leaning on the original NYHC sounds No Turning Back has evolved and developed their own signature grooves, fast breaks and massive sing along anthems. The sound that moves any crowd in any city in any country into a swirling mass of circle-pits, stage dives and huge sing a-longs. A split picture 7" with Strength For A Reasons was released on Filled With Hate Records this year and the band is confirmed for Europe's annual Persistence Tour.
