Following the announcement of new album Dance On The Blacktop on August 24th via Relapse Records, Phillys post-rock shoegazers NOTHING have announced a full European tour.
Recorded at the historical Dreamland Studios in Woodstock, NY, Dance on the Blacktop is the next chapter of NOTHINGs story and like its predecessors, pulls from all corners of life in its contents. Stories of self-loathing, self-destruction, and a general disdain for humanity and its, insignificant role in Palermos vision of the universe are met with his poised amusement and tranquil hysteria being one himself. All of this told through the eyes of a recently diagnosed Palermo suggesting he is dealing with the early stages of CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), a neurodegenerative disease found in people with serious head injuries. And as they packed themselves in a coffin-sized NYC apartment for 23 days to demo songs it became abundantly clear that the ripple effect left upon his psyche from dealing with these newfound symptoms would leave its mark on the material.
See NOTHINGs now signature apocalyptic, reverberating wall of shimmering sound up close and personal this winter.
Dance On The Blacktop will be released on Relapse Records August 24th.
