Published Dec 08, 2015Since releasing their breakthrough album Guilty of Everything last year, Philadelphia shoegaze act Nothing have been through a decent chunk of ups and downs. Now, it looks as if they're finally ready to release their next album Tired of Tomorrow.
The LP was originally scheduled to arrive via Geoff Rickly's Collect Records imprint, but the band were outspoken against the label when they learned that notorious AIDS pill price-gauger Martin Shkreli was bankrolling the label.
Though Rickly has since parted ways with Shkreli, it looks as if Nothing have stood by their plans to split from the label. The group have just released a new teaser video for Tired of Tomorrow that confirms plans to release the album with Relapse, who also handled Guilty of Everything.
On the YouTube page for the video, the Relapse Records account commented "Welcome back gentlemen!"
It's also worth noting that Nothing bassist Nick Bassett is absent from the video. Bassett got his other band Whirr into a lot of trouble earlier this year when they made transphobic tweets against the band G.L.O.S.S. on their Twitter account. Whirr was subsequently dropped from their labels Run for Cover and Graveface.
A press release hinted at a split with Bassett, officially listing Nothing's lineup as just Domenic Palermo, Brandon Setta and Kyle Kimball, and only those three members are pictured in their new press photo (see above). In a new Noisey interview, Palermo opens up about the G.L.O.S.S. incident:
Nick was, and has been, dealing with the recent passing of his mother, one of the only family members that he was still in contact with. Their Facebook and Twitter accounts have always been a trolling thing for the band in total. While Nick was definitely involved with trolling, and I told him he should watch out for that, he had nothing to do with that specific incident. Anyone who knows me or some of the actions we've taken in the name of equality and tolerance in general, they know that I would have nothing to do with anyone like that. All of our signs of solidarity, with merch or the label or whatever it was, all of that happened before any of this Whirr shit.
