Nine Miles to Empty features former Regulars band-mates Dave Gardner on rhythm guitar/vocals and Pony on drums/vocals. Rounding out the lineup are former Red 45 bassman Jason Gardner on bass/vocals and Red 45 guitarist Jay Neubauer on lead guitar/vocals.
 9M2E broke onto the Western New York music scene in August of 2011 with a packed show at Club Infinity. 
Quickly becaming a local favorite and since their introduction Nine Miles to Empty has been steadily building a loyal following through head turning performances at many iconic local venues headlining and opening for national touring acts. 

9M2E plans to release a full length album of uniquely original songs which draw influence from a hodge podge mixture of  punk, funk, ska, reggae, r&b, country, power pop and some crazy shit like you've never heard before. Their live shows are continually evolving as the band is constantly striving to intertwine popular songs by well known artists with historically significant songs from bands who have shaped the face of today's alternative music.
