Not On Tour was formed in 2008 as a joke, a band project to play during the summer and entertain all the left-behind punks in Tel Aviv, who were also “not on tour” and stranded.
Too bad the set turned out great, the shows to be fun and the band too excited to ever break up. Here they are today, 10 years later with a tour history that is quite the opposite of what was once intended.

The four friends have been touring all over the globe since 2014, Japan with Strung Out and A Wilhelm Scream, Russia with Satanic Surfers and Useless ID, Europe with Descendents, Propagandhi, Lagwagon, Feine Sahne Fischfilet, Pennywise, Face To Face, Good Riddance, Pears, No Trigger, Chixx Diggit and Masked Intruder. Festivals like Groezrock (BE), Punkrock Holiday (SLO), Xtreme Fest (F), Brakrock (BE), Gasteiz Calling (ESP) and more have been played multiple times. They became road warriors quickly, and made sure to bring the party to where they could.

Not On Tour’s music is pure melodic punk rock energy, keeping the crowds dancing wherever they go. Armed with an in-your-face mentality, the band is throwing intense shows with songs rarely passing the 90 seconds mark. Not On Tour delivers a positive, raw punk rock sound with lyrics about the challenges of life, mental health, politics, love, fun but also day-to-day struggle, paired with catchy tunes and impressive female front vocals, ranging between anger and soul. Their obvious hardcore influences push the melodies forward, while voluminous backing harmonies do the rounding off and turn songs into punk rock anthems.

Three Full Length albums and one EP have been released to the world so far: Self Titled (2010), N.O.T (2011), All This Time (2012) and Bad Habits (2015, produced by Yotam Ben Horin of Useless ID). Their next album “Growing Pains” (produced by Ishay Berger of Useless ID) will be released in the spring of next year. You can look forward to 20 songs, on an LP that will approximately be about 30 minutes long. And a mad tour all over the place that’ll bring “Growing Pains” straight to your neighborhood.
