Following on from the release of their debut album, Guilty of Everything, NOTHING are proud to share the music video for Bent Nail. The video was directed by Don Argott (who recently released his documentary on Lamb of Gods frontman Randy Blythe titled As The Palaces Burn and previously directed films such as The Art of The Steal and Rock School) and features a cameo by fellow Philadelphian Kurt Vile. The album is available now via Relapse Records.
Guilty of Everything has been gaining recognition and acclaim in both the US and Europe, with OOR magazine in the Netherlands hailing the record as “…the album My Bloody Valentine should have written,” whilst Rock-A-Rolla in the UK describe it as “a remarkably dense and heavy yet gentle and elegant shoegazey dream pop opus”. Roadburn.com said that the album was “a winning mix of ethereal, aurorean shoegaze coupled with infectious riffs and hooks”
Next week, NOTHING will play a one off, exclusive show at the 2014 edition of the Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, the Netherlands. This is their first ever live performance on European soil.

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. Lawrence 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.
