Nothing is taking The Great Dismal on tour, with a Union Transfer stop in October - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Philly-rooted noise rockers Nothing released a terrific album last year, The Great Dismal, and its beautifully bleak anthems hit particularly hard during the Coronavirus pandemic. Now the band is hitting the road in support of it, with a hometown gig happening October 16th at Union Transfer.

Along with acting as a showcase of the new album, the run also serves as an anniversary celebration of Tired of Tomorrow, the band’s 2016 breakout LP, and their label Relapse Records is releasing a new pressing of the record with a bonus 7″ — get more info and preorder that here.

Announcements for concerts at this point are subject to change due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, and though Union Transfer does not have any specific COVID safety information on their website yet, promoter Sean Agnew told us in our recent story about the return of concerts that “We will almost certainly enforce masks for the foreseeable future. Lots of states are talking about showing proof of a vaccine OR taking a same day COVID test to attend a concert. We aren’t quite sure yet what to expect, but whatever the state and city decides — we’ll be sure to follow along and welcome everyone back in a SAFE manner.”

Speaking of COVID, as the pandemic raged last year, Nothing shot and released a terrific, apocalypse-themed music video for “April Ha Ha” featuring Alex G, playing perfectly into the existential themes of The Great Dismal. Watch that down below, get more information on Nothing’s Union Transfer show with Frankie Rose here, and check out their full schedule of tour dates.
