Philadelphia band Nothing have shared the first new music from their forthcoming sophomore LP.
“Vertigo Flowers” is set to appear on new album Tired Of Tomorrow, scheduled for release on the 13th of May via Relapse Records.
Speaking of the track’s inspiration, frontman Domenic Palermo explains: “I was walking to the bank one day with a couple friends and I believed a car full of men was following me around. I walked through the parking lot and into a Walmart and hid there for a couple hours. I was experiencing a new consistent spell of vertigo that I believed may have been a direct result of a recent brain trauma and hospital stay. Everything seemed hazy and for a few weeks I was having a hard time sorting everything out. In the studio the vertigo never really stopped so a lot of the lyrics I had previously wrote for songs I decided to change because whatever was going on in my head I wanted out.”
In addition to the new song, the band has also revealed an in-studio trailer for a visceral look at the raw moments recording Tired Of Tomorrow, directed by Don Argott.
Tired Of Tomorrow was originally set for release via Collect Records, until the band discovered that the label had been funded by the now-infamous hedge fund manager Martin Shkreli, whose roster subsequently dissolved under the weight of the unsettling controversy surrounding him.
Though the album was written before the Shkreli debacle, Palermo sees those events to only have strengthened the sentiments and ideas behind Tired Of Tomorrow, rather than confuse its message.
