With influences like Alan Watts, rather than the usual elder statesmen of hard rock, Nothing More is truly innovating in the genre.  Three-times Grammy Nominated, the band’s critically acclaimed album The Stories We Tell Ourselves, has been dominating on the rock radio charts and on streaming services.  With 3 Top 10 songs to its credit thus far, the album shows no sign of slowing down its progress.

The fan favorite single “Fade In/Fade Out” has over 10 million streams on Spotify. The official video for the single has over 600,000 views to date. The reception for the track led the band to the famous Abbey Road Studios to record an acoustic arrangement of the song.

Of the track, vocalist Jonny Hawkins says “When I sing this song I daydream about my childhood… the days before my parents were broken apart by cancer. I think about how my dad taught me to throw a ball. I think about how my mom taught me to tie my shoes. I think about how my dad would always say “hard work pays off” trying to teach me a lesson while I was focused on a video game, too young to care. I remember my mother consoling me when I threw a paint brush to the ground, frustrated by an unintended slip of the hand. I will never forget what she said, “Jonny, it’s not a mistake, there are no such things as mistakes, just creative opportunities.” I think about the first moment I realized that they wouldn’t be here forever.  I think about how thankful I am.”

The Abbey Road Studios shot video can be previewed then seen at 11am EST here   Of their work at Abbey Road, guitarist Mark Vollelunga says “Earlier this year I approached the guys about doing an acoustic version of “Fade In / Fade Out”.  I wanted to really lean into the timeless nature of the song and the historic, legendary Abbey Road studios seemed like the ideal place for a new rendition. We were in the same room that Pink Floyd did Dark Side of the Moon. As soon as we entered the studio we all felt the presence of greatness in that place. And like the Beatles said “Love is old, Love is new. Love is all, Love is you.”  The vibe there is strong.”

Nothing More is always a joy to watch and hear.  Every performance is executed with verve and precision,” says Metal Nation of the band, who just wrapped a US tour with beloved Swedish metallers, Ghost.  “The raw power and immediate control of the packed house reminded me of witnessing Pantera perform for their first time,” added Music In Minnesota.  The band is home for the holidays, readying ever more material for their dedicated fanbase.
