Nothing More Adds Miles To The Road And Communes With ‘Spirits’

Multi-Grammy-nominated, San Antonio-based Rock band Nothing More have revealed the details of their new studio album, Spirits. Out worldwide on October 14th, 2022, via Better Noise Music, the album gets its a new teaser with the title track and its lyric video.

Frontman Jonny Hawkins explores the idea behind the title track and album:

Isn’t it interesting that we give the same name to something holy and something wholly intoxicating? 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 also recently announced a Fall tour with Heavy Rock band In This Moment. It will stretch from August 26 to October 22 and include stops at several festivals including Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Louder Than Life, Rocklahoma and Aftershock.

They’ve previously been on tour across the U.S. on a co-headlining run with Asking Alexandria, who had to drop-off mid-tour due to health problems. The band continued to lead the remaining dates in a show which saw the return of their infamous “Scorpion Tail”—a 400-pound, 14-foot MIDI controller constructed out of salvaged metal scraps by bassist Daniel Oliver. This “wild theatrical display”, actually allows Hawkins to manipulate the band’s sound, too.

The album Spirits was co-written and produced by the band and their longtime manager Will Hoffman. It sets out to encompass much of the world’s experience in the past two years, including internal struggles, but coming to a point of self-reliance. The band’s personal goals also continue to be “Reflect, Provoke, Inspire”.
