Nothing





New Track: "Blue Line Baby" - Nothing

Another sonic glimpse into Dance On the Blacktop, the forthcoming album from Nothing (scheduled for release on August 24 via Relapse Records), has been revealed. “Blue Line Baby” weaves between the soft innocent nature of the vocals and the rougher, combative side of the instrumental swells. Finding a union in those contrasting elements of hushed and heavy is a jarring musical memory. You can feel Nothing at Union Transfer on Saturday, October 6, supported by Swirlies, Big Bite, and Smut! (Photo by Ben Rayner)





New Music Video: "Zero Day" - Nothing

Nothing recently shared the new video for “Zero Day,” the first single from their forthcoming album, Dance On The Blacktop, due out August 24 via Relapse Records. Directed by Kevin Haus, ominous clouds hang overhead as the band of pallbearers carries frontman Nicky Palermo's body through the streets of Philadelphia, surrounded by a parade of Mummers and Eagles fans. The melodic buzz carries a heavy undertone, even during its points of celebration. Supported by Swirlies, Big Bite, and Smut, the band is slated to headline Union Transfer on Saturday October 6.

Weekend Warrior, September 15 - 17

This Saturday, the historic Electric Factory will be hosting Project Pabst Citywide Fest, where you’ll be treated to an array notable and rising indie recording artists. The fiercely open, riff-tastic tunes of Thin Lips will be catching hold of early birds with momentous melodies. Later in the day, bridging the gap between adolescent and adulthood into anthems of universal release, The Menzingers take the stage to the delight of their growing loyal fan base. Sandwiched in between, you’ll also find the fragile, cathartic, biting melodies of Nothing and the sincere, gritty, pop sensibilities of Speedy Ortiz, who has recently welcomed Laser Background’s Andy Moholt into the fold. The elegantly exposed vulnerability of Big Thief, Atlanta garage-rock gals The Coathangers, and “Mr. F*ck, That’s Delicious” Action Bronson round out this daylong hang. – Michael Colavita

Weekend Warrior, June 2 - 4

Sometimes in the midst of the external consuming chaos, one can tap into music as a means of temporary solace. Tonight’s show at Union Transfer provides such an outlet. In celebration of Tired Hands Brewing fifth anniversary, an evening of heady heaviness is on tap. Nothing provides soothing, cloudy melodies, while the grimy, backend rumble punishes in space-clearing fashion and the scorch of guitar engulfs one’s mind. They’ll bridge the divide between the ever-abundant, riff-laced, Arkansas quartet, known as Pallbearer, and the finely-threaded, menacing mayhem of Baroness.

This Saturday, across three stages, Festival Pier hosts the tenth annual Roots Picnic. Along with the event’s namesakes - the legendary Roots crew, the star-studded lineup includes the likes of Pharrell, Lil Wayne, Thundercat, Solange, Noname, etc., while Tunji Ige and PNB Rock reinforce the local link.

Rather than slowing down, the duo of Kevin Nickles and Daniel Provenzano, otherwise characterized as The Writhing Squares, steps into Johnny Brenda’s for a genre-melding, space-boogieing sojourn, with psych-blues trio Fully Glazed setting the table. In support of their new record Vibe Killer (recently released via No Quarter), the snarly, boozy blues-psych of Endless Boogie brings it home. - Michael Colavita

New Music Video: "Curse Of The Sun" - Nothing

Last week, we posted director Jimmy Hubbard's "Try To Disappear" video for Baroness, which was made up of live performance and backstage footage. This week, Hubbel gives Philly's own Nothing the similar treatment; however, he captures the hazy, drug-induced feelings of the band's music during editing for the single "Curse Of The Sun". Embrace its hallucinogenic warmth. Nothing is currently on an extensive European tour that will be pushing forward into the middle of next month.
