New album Dance On The Blacktop out on August 24th on Relapse Records.
Philidelphia metalgaze outfit NOTHING have shared a video for new single ‘Blue Line Baby’. The track is one that is very personal for the band as it focuses on the Kensington/Frankford section of North Philadelphia in the early 1990’s, amidst its full-blown opioid outbreak.
Frontman Domenic Palermo explains: “Looking around at the friends and family that are still around that came from down there, I’ll always be touched by what can come out of all that chaos and suffering. Children forced to learn loss early, faced with immeasurable odds and all the while this train continually hovers over your head, taunting you with its irony that there wasn’t a way out.”
The concept for the video is perfectly suited to the song’s themes. Directed by Mark McCoy and Domenic Palermo, it tells the tale of the song’s protagonist Cambria. The tale is filtered through the Shakespearean character of Ophelia using the Sir John Everett Millais painting as the base.
Check out the making of the video here:
