Nothing Announce New Album, Release New Video
Philadelphia’s shoegaze-est sons Nothing have announced they are returning to the game with an album of new jamz entitled Dance On The Blacktop. If you’re into songs about confusion, anxiety, paranoia, depression, and chronic battles with physical pain due to the early stages of CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), a neurodegenerative disease found in people with serious head injuries, then oh boy, is this the record for you.
…and check out this cover, wild right?
To get you in the mood for the album drop, the band have released a video for Zero Day, which will be the first track on the record.
“The amount of difficulty a person faces when attempting to close the door on all sense, meaning, or value when thinking on our existence is hard to put in words,” says frontman Domenic Palermo. ”But to me it has always been the latter. I’ve laid awake countless nights contemplating human life, its hostile uselessness, and why I’m one of the few who choose to see it that way yet manage to move onward. So I suppose in that sense Zero Day is a song of paradoxical enlightenment.”
