Philadelphia's Nothing just premiered a new animated music video for the track "A.C.D. (Abscessive Compulsive Disorder)." The video is a dark homage to Dire Straits' classic "Money For Nothing" clip and can be seen below. Nothing guitarist/vocalist Domenic Palermo elaborates:
"I've been obsessing over some dark web computer animated stuff lately. Much of this is your run of the mill, awful footage that makes you remember how frail our human bodies are, but some are these odd, home-made computer animations doing strange things that give you an uneasy feeling, but also one of pure evil and chaos. I wanted to recreate that mixed with a violent/sad version of Dire Straits, 'Money For Nothing' video." More...
Philadelphia's Nothing has announced a special vinyl repress of debut album "Guilty of Everything" in honor of LGBT Pride Month.
The new edition, features the original black and white album cover with a rainbow flag in place of the white flag. The special repress will be available in select indie stores on June 2nd while a limited rainbow colored version is available exclusively via Relapse online.
The band and Relapse Records will donate a portion of the proceeds from each sale to the LGBT awareness non-profits, the It Gets Better Project and New Alternatives. Frontman Nicky Palermo commented on the LGBT version of the album:
"We had just finished the fourth pressing of GOE on pink vinyl in collaboration with Insound/Gilda's Club NYC to support the fight against breast cancer. We were able to donate a portion of the sale and I thought that was a really great idea.
"Relapse and myself discussed options for the fifth pressing when we noticed the release date would end up falling in the middle of LGBT pride month, so we searched for a suitable non profit that we could do the same.
"We decided to split the proceeds among two charities and decided upon the It Gets Better Project and New Alternatives. It Get's Better focus' on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans youth's struggle of growing up in a society where many do not understand them and in many cases turn to tormenting and torture. In that they show these teens that there is a bright side coming and that they are far from alone. New Alternatives provide support services for homeless LGBT youth." More...

Philadelphia outfit Nothing has been out on the road for a July tour that's hit a snag. The band comments:
"We have been stuck in Toledo now for three days and so far have had to cancel two shows. Our van was struck in a hit and run while parked overnight when we were sleeping Sunday morning.
We had to have it towed to a mechanic and unfortunately it has some suffered some serious damage.
"To make things worse one of the vital parts needed to get things running is on a national back order for a month, which means we're going to have to rent a van to continue this tour (on top of the cost of all the parts and labor to fix our current van). As you can imagine this is a pretty big set back considering any band of our size starts every tour in a considerable deficit, not to mention who rely on money at each show to keep things moving forward in general.
"If this was simply just a case of losing money at the end of a tour it wouldn't be an issue, playing in this band and punk bands since early teens it has almost become accustom, but as it stands now we simply can not afford to continue on.
"So at this point we are going to set up a paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any donation you may be able to afford, so we can do everything in our power to make this awesome tour continue. ANYTHING will be sincerely and greatly appreciated even if it's just a repost.
"Thanks for taking your time to read this all and once again, apologies to Indianapolis and St Louis. We will be back soon." More...

Philadelphia's Nothing has released a new music video for "Bent Nail," which comes off the "Guilty of Everything" album. Check it out below, courtesy of AVClub.com. The band also comments:
"Big thanks to Don Argott and crew, Kurt Vile for coming the night after his birthday, Boot & Saddle for making a mess, The A.V. Club for the premiere, and the city of Philadelphia."
SXSW can be an overwhelming endeavor. From word-of-mouth parties and secret performances to unofficial day shows that the festival doesn't promote, planning takes more than cursory glances. After last year's exhaustive outing, I learned a lesson: keep it simple (stupid) and don't over plan. One best experiences South By Southwest by staying in a downtown hotel and taking pedicabs (or real car cabs depending on the extent of travel). For only $2 a day, a bus is the way to go for Austinites, as long as they're not staying past midnight. More...

"Nothing was formed in 2011 by Domenic Palermo. Previously Palermo was the brains behind the early 2000's hardcore/punk act Horror Show. in 2002 Horror Show was put on hold after Palermo was incarcerated for a stabbing that eventually led to a 2 year prison sentence. Upon his return Palermo would take a lengthy hiatus from music.
"In 2011 Palermo released a demo tape titled Poshlost under the moniker Nothing 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, a very rare 12" EP that was released on Japanese boutique label Big Love Records called Suns And Lovers (A play off of the D.H. Lawernce book). It was limited to 300 copies and the bands share was donated back to the label for a Tsunami Relief Charity.
"The next release, Downward Years To Come was a 5 song EP and was recorded at the Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn with Kyle 'Slick' Johnson. The record was released by Baltimore Label A389 Records in November 2012. Written by Palermo and Setta, the concept behind Downward Years To Come was a dedication to several different poets who had taken their own lives. Setta and Palermo would again head into the studio, this time with Jeff Zeigler at Uniform Recordings to write their debut LP, Guilty of Everything and sign with Relapse Records." More...
