LISTEN: Nothing Are “Tired of Tomorrow” on New LP, Share “Vertigo Flowers”
The Philly noise band are back with the followup to 2014's Guilty of Everything.
Guilty of Everything, Nothing‘s 2014 debut, found them twirling from abrasion and chaos to a bitter kind of beauty like a latter-day version of Hum (who, not surprisingly, took the Philadelphia band out on tour). Now, following a traumatic year, the group are preparing to release Tired of Tomorrow on May 13 via Relapse.
You can hear Tired of Tomorrow‘s lead single, “Vertigo Flowers,” below. It’s a deceptively poppy track for the group, particularly given its genesis. While the band was touring behind Guilty of Everything, singer Dominic Palermo was mugged and badly beaten in Oakland. His attacker fractured his skull and orbital, requiring him to receive nineteen staples and leaving him with a bad case of vertigo. One day, as he was walking to the bank, the vertigo caused him to believe that he was being followed, and he ended up hiding in a Walmart for several hours. “Everything seemed hazy and for a few weeks I was having a hard time sorting everything out,” he said in a statement. “In the studio the vertigo never really stopped, so a lot of the lyrics I had previously written for songs I decided to change, because whatever was going on in my head I wanted out.”
Tired of Tomorrow is out May 13 on Relapse.
