A lot of energy in this single by rising young stars, Detention. This fusion of ska & punk will make your kids (and you) go crazy! Fun, really well made, and with a lot of attitude “Not To Go” is the perfect song to light up your day or party!



These young kids have the right attitude and the perfect level of skill to make your heads go bang. Believe me when I say Detention is no joke. All the way from Akron, Ohio, USA, they deliver a fresh and energetic rhythm that can be appreciated by skaters, punks, emos, and all the like.

“No To Go” will seize you right from the start with its heavy disco drums, powerful bass, crunchy guitars, and top-notch vocals. Lyrics reflect teenage angst, and the desire to be happy and to escape boredom. Heavily relatable and with a lot of teen spirit, the single is the definition of catchy.

Singer, Elliott Carter says: “Not To Go is about being sick of everything and everyone around you except for one person. You feel stuck in some boring part of life. You want this person to come with you to escape it all— but they probably need shaken loose. Lyrically the song builds to you begging this person to come with you as you leave town, or they can try to make you stay. There’s a tension between the heaviness in the lyrics and the party music underneath”.

With several shows booked on their list, Detention is already making a lot of noise and getting recognition, having shared lineups amongst Portugal. The Man, AJR, Kesha, AJR and Dayglow. Also, their pop-punk anthem “56 Minutes” has been in heavy rotation on Sirius XM (Faction Punk).

Having played at the world-famous “Whiskey a Go Go” in LA, and winning the 24th Annual Tri-C High School Rock Off at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, this all-teen band created by lead singer Elliott Carter (17), bassist Fritz Dannemiller (18), drummer Luke Konopka (15) and guitarist Evans Cox (14), have a very bright future ahead of them.
