Multi-Grammy-nominated, San Antonio-based rock outfit Nothing More have revealed details on their highly awaited new studio album. Out worldwide on October 14th via Better Noise Music, ‘Spirits’ consists of the band’s most focused, adventurous, and intense music, uniting introspective philosophical lyrics with unapologetically massive anthems.
‘Spirits’ was co-written and produced by the band – Johnny Hawkins (vocals), Oliver (bass), Mark Vollelunga (guitar), and Ben Anderson (drums) – and their longtime manager Will Hoffman. It documents the tumultuous time the world experienced over the past two years capturing the desperation and isolation of lockdown, the spiral of substance abuse, the pain of broken relationships, and survival in self-reliance while summarizing the overall story and mission of Nothing More: reflect, provoke, inspire.
Coinciding with the news, Nothing More are excited to share the album’s title track ‘Spirits,’ along with its lyric video.
“Isn’t it interesting that we give the same name to something holy and something wholly intoxicating?” asks Nothing More frontman, Johnny Hawkins. “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.”
Nothing More gave fans the first preview of ‘Spirits’ with two singles – their in-your-face rock anthem ‘Turn It Up Like(Stand in the Fire)’ and their most recent Top 20 Billboard Active Rock radio single ‘Tired Of Winning’ which is currently at #11.
