Following the release of their critically acclaimed new album Tired Of Tomorrow, Philadelphia’s NOTHING have announced a full European tour through September and October, with UK dates beginning September 11th at Bristol’s Start The Bus.

As well as their forthcoming 35-date European tour, NOTHING have enlisted pioneering electronic producer Ryan Hemsworth to remix ‘Nineteen Ninety Heaven’. Although an unlikely pairing, the results are warped, moving and deeply atmospheric. Frontman Domenic Palermo offers insight into the personal struggles that inspired the track:

“When I began writing this song it had a very dreamy vibe. I envisioned dreams that would occur in my early teens when I started to deal with my earliest signs of fear and anxiety. When I was 13 an older friend gave me LSD without telling me. I had come home acting very erratic and my recently deceased father, who had recently gone from being an abusive alcoholic to an abusive born again Christian, held me in a corner and screamed in tongues at me while holding his hands across my forehead. I had a really unfortunate time that held an effect on me for a while. I’d start to urinate in my own bed from the horrible things my mind was projecting on myself. I started to try and keep myself awake by pretending I was a spy or soldier, or someone who was more brave. Reality was hard to decipher during that time. I got past it eventually and stopped peeing the bed, unless I’m really drunk.”

Ryan Hemsworth adds, “NOTHING definitely gives me hope for the 13 or 14 year old kid right now who wants to learn guitar and can’t find any good new bands. I hope they find Guilty Of Everything and listen to it 200 times, and thenTired Of Tomorrow 300 times.”

NOTHING are currently performing across North America on the Tired Of Tourism tour with Relapse label mates, WRONG and California’s Culture Abuse, plus select dates with Citizen. The tour also includes festival appearances at Lollapalooza, Governor’s Ball, Spillover, Shaky Knees, Levitation, Forecastle, and more, including the recently announced Coney Island show with Jane’s Addiction and Dinosaur Jr. Having played a sold-out album release show at Hackney’s MOTH Club earlier in the year, NOTHING will return to the UK on September 11th starting a run of dates at Bristol’s Start The Bus.

Praise for Tired Of Tomorrow:

“…a muscular and expansive record, building on the shoegaze-meets-hardcore sound of their debut and showcasing their pop hooks and post-rock sensibilities.” NME 4/5

“…a dark, otherworldly affair […] which explores the realm between life and death, reality and dream.” Rolling Stone

“their most intense release yet, bringing together one of the worst years in the band’s life in a cathartic boom of an album.” Noisey

“Gentle shoegaze with a 90s alt-rock pop sensibility” Pitchfork 8/10

“Their most direct form to date” DIY

“a sonic powerhouse that manages to legitimise, rather than stigmatise, feelings of anxiety and paranoia” Drowned In Sound

“the depth lurking within NOTHING’s carefully-crafted noise makes them like nothing else.” Kerrang! 4/5

“life-affirming melodic passages, emotively delivered via reverb-soaked guitar and Domenic Palermo’s disarmingly quiet vocals.” Rock Sound

“soaring hooks and misanthropic lyricism that strikes a chord with both the head and the heart.” The 405

“Capable of leaving heads spinning and hearts reeling” The Line of Best Fit

“A beautifully delicate and heartbreakingly poignant record.” Upset Magazine
