Nothing More premiered the video for its latest single over the weekend.
The band debuted the lyric video for its new single, ‘Spirits‘ Friday. The song is the title track from its forthcoming eponymous album and the record’s third single behind ‘Tired Of Winning‘ and ‘Turn It Up Like (Stand In The Fire)‘. The album is now scheduled for release Oct. 14 through Better Noise Music.
The musical arrangement featured in the new single is a heavy, aggro-rock style composition. The heaviness of the instrumentation pairs with the almost Maynard James Kennan-esque vocals to make the whole engaging and entertaining.
The song’s lyrical theme, which front man Johnny Hawkins addressed, is engaging in its own right.
“Isn’t it interesting that we give the same name to something holy and something wholly intoxicating?,” he said. “The song ‘SPIRITS’ describes that very conundrum. When you drink liquor, it has been said that you are welcoming that pneuma (spirit) into your body. Most of us have seen and experienced how alcohol (or rather ‘al-ghawl,’ which means demon/spirit) can make us feel. It’s almost as if we turn into someone else when too much of the spirit has been consumed. Sometimes it’s eye opening and can lead to wondrous life-changing conversations or bonds that would never normally happen…and sometimes it can lead to the exact opposite. It may turn us into Dr. Hyde’s Jekyll and cause us to do or say horrific things we would never normally do sober. Spirits are both a little bit heavenly and a little bit sick.”
In other news, Nothing More also announced this week, a pending tour with In This Moment. The tour is scheduled to launch Aug. 26 and to run through Oct. 22. The tour includes a performance at the annual Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Louder Than Life festival, and Rocklahoma festival. The band recently wrapped another tour with Asking Alexandria June 19.
