thebandwithnoname, also sometimes referred to as "TBWNN" by fans, are a Christian band who were launched by Innervation Trust in March 2002, as a "flagship" band. Innervation Trust is a Christian charity that exists to recruit and resource schools teams, dubbed "Collectives", each dedicated to a major city in the UK. Innervation Trust is the product of Mark Pennells and Zarc Porter, a songwriter/producer partnership also credited with writing most of the music for, and co-founding, the World Wide Message Tribe.
The band's third album, Dying To Be There, was released on the 23rd Feb 2007, and has so far garnered extremely positive reviews including a 10 square review from Cross Rhythms. Thanks to a "systems failure", several copies were sent to Christian bookshops early and sold well before the release date. In addition the album was sold in the US by the band, before the album was released in the UK.
