Here’s something for your monday to kick off your musical week. A new song from “NOTHING” and their new track “Bent Nail” of their upcoming release “Guilty of Everything” via Relapse Records. If you dig fuzzy tones and a big wall of sound, look no further:


NOTHINGGuilty of Everything
Relapse Records
Release: 4 March 2014

Philadelphia’s NOTHING, formed in 2011 by Domenic Palermo, have been destroying the eardrums of audiences throughout North America for the past 2 years with a magnetic blend of captivatingly dark and beautiful vocals and explosive, blown out, in the red guitar fuzz. The band formed after Palermo, who was previously the brains behind the early 2000’s hardcore/punk act Horror Show, returned from a lengthy musical hiatus that included a prison sentence and released a demo tape titled “Poshlost” under the new moniker. After several attempts at constructing a solid lineup for the band, Palermo met Brandon Setta. Setta would bring a lush, rich soundscape and a fresh approach to Palermo’s vision for NOTHING. Setta and Palermo would handle the writing for the next release: the very rare 12″ EP “Suns and Lovers” (a play off of the D.H. Lawrence book) that was released on Japanese boutique label Big Love Records. It was limited to 300 copies and the bands’ share was donated back to the label for a Tsunami Relief Charity.

Next, the band released a 5 song EP titled “Downward Years To Come” which was recorded at the Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn with Kyle “Slick” Johnson and released by Baltimore Label A389 Records in November 2012. The EP is a dedication to several different poets who took their own lives. Setta and Palermo would again head into the studio, this time with Jeff Zeigler at Uniform Recordings, to work on their first LP and sign with Relapse Records.

On their debut full length “Guilty Of Everything”, recorded and produced by Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, War On Drugs, etc), NOTHING seamlessly merge the huge distorted guitar sound of 90s/00s alternative rock giants My Bloody Valentine and Smashing Pumpkins with Jesu’s introspective post-metal/hardcore. This is a triumph of a debut that successfully manages to be massively loud, darkly introspective and totally beautiful all at once.
