Nothing More Is Really Something

After virtually non-stop touring since their 2017 release of The Stories We Tell Ourselves (as both headlining and supporting acts), Nothing More had a small window to enjoy some personal down time and some studio time this summer to work on what will be their next release (TBD) before heading out on yet another tour. Their Fade In/Fade Out Tour would see them again criss-crossing the US and include some Canadian cities for a two month run with GHOST (on their The Ultimate Tour Named Death) through September and October.

With their near constant touring schedule over these last few years, Nothing More has continued to grow their fan base, playing in a number of national and international cities, to larger crowds than ever before. Lead vocalist Johnny Hawkins has continued to elevate his performance (literally) at every show from atop his “scorpion tail” custom drum mechanism, and center stage while donning a ‘no shirt, no shoes, all-in’ attitude.

Amid a bit of a late start to their show at Seattle’s WAMU Theater last week (due to a bit of a pre show snafu where the venue’s fire alarms were set off when the stage smoke from Ghost‘s set was being tested), Nothing More came out and set the stage on fire with their own smokin’ hot performance. Their set included a small selection of their catalogue, including their latest single, “Fade In/Fade Out,” which is also their latest song to be set to video.

After being out on tour for hundreds of days these past few years, Nothing More definitely deserves some downtime when this tour is over, and after having already begun on their next album, fans have reason to start the countdown in its anticipation. With its release date looming, they will ‘more’ than likely hit the road again to promote it at some point next year, giving fans even ‘more’ to look forward to and ‘more’ chances to see them live. If you’re a fan of their music, you should see them live at least once. Perhaps you’re already a super-fan and you see them every time they come to Seattle, and when you go on vacation and find out they are playing in the city you will be going to, and you immediately buy tickets to see them there too. *coughs* …
