Composed of members ranging from all over the central PA music scene, INFM delivers their own brand of catchy choruses, driving riffs, and hard-hitting breakdowns with an explosive live performance to match. The band has cemented themselves as a fan favorite staple in the emerging metalcore scene.


From their very first shows, If Not For Me quickly gained a reputation for their high-energy performances and passionate, heavy music. They drew inspiration from a range of metalcore and post-hardcore influences, including bands like August Burns Red, Killswitch Engage, and Bring Me the Horizon, but also incorporated elements of pop and melodic rock into their sound.



Their EP, Capture the Current, was released in 2018 and showcased the band's growth and evolution as musicians. With more intricate guitar work, dynamic songwriting, and powerful vocals, the EP showcased the band's technical proficiency and songwriting skills, and earned them positive reviews from critics and fans alike. If Not For Me continued to tour and play shows throughout the United States, sharing stages with bands like Ice Nine Kills, August Burns Red, and Polaris.


Determined to push the boundaries of their sound, If Not For Me teamed up with producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland of Atrium Audio to produce a new 14-song LP called Eulogy, which takes their dynamic mix of aggressive vocal cadences, huge catchy choruses, massive breakdowns, and technical facemelting riffs to an entirely new level. In September of 2021 the band signed to Theoria Records and then released Euology in February 2022. The album came out swinging on it’s first week and reached #53 - “Top Current Hard Rock Albums,” #70 - “Top New Artist Albums,” and #173 - “Top Current Independent Albums” on Billboard. The album received widespread praise for its tight musicianship, emotive lyrics, and unrelenting energy. It showcased a new level of maturity in the band's songwriting, while still retaining the fierce, unbridled passion that had endeared them to fans.


If Not For Me showcases a subtle side to their music. The band hones in on a brutally melodic sound as it grows into fierce hooks throughout the chorus. "Alone" explores the band's diversity while lacing it with their own familiarity. This single leads fans into a new territory while drawing new listeners in.
