Near Miss

Near Miss

Near Miss was an American punk rock band from Austin, Texas.


Near Miss was founded in 2001 by two former members of Bigwig, who recorded a 4-song demo that year. After expanding to a four-piece, the group signed to Fearless Records, releasing their debut full-length in the summer of 2002. [ Near Miss] at Allmusic] The album was produced by Cameron Webb. [ [ On the Road] . "Riverfront Times", November 19, 2003.] The group toured frequently for the next several years, playing several Warped Tour festivals and going on the road with Sum 41, The Vandals, Gob, Rise Against, and The Lawrence Arms. Guitarist Steve Cockrell left the group in 2002; they worked as a three-piece until 2006, when Joshua Portman joined the group on guitar. The group appeared on a three-way split album with The Matches and Reeve Oliver in 2005, then toured with Killradio before releasing their sophomore album on Takeover Records in 2006. They broke up in 2008, though they are still planning a farewell show; Joshua Portman went on to play bass for Yellowcard.
