Biography

1. Nothing is an American band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States formed in 2011 by Domenic Palermo. Previously, Palermo was the brains behind the early 2000’s act Horror Show, which was put on hold in 2002 after Palermo was incarcerated for a stabbing that eventually led to a 2 year prison sentence. Upon his return, Palermo would take a lengthy hiatus from music. In 2011, Palermo released a demo tape entitled Poshlost / пошлость under the moniker Nothing. After several attempts at constructing a solid lineup for the band, Palermo met Brandon Setta. Setta would bring a lush, rich soundscape and a fresh approach to Palermo’s vision for the band.

Setta and Palermo would handle the writing for the next release, a very rare 12” EP that was released on Japanese boutique label Big Love Records called Suns and Lovers. It was limited to 300 copies and the band’s share was donated back to the label for a Tsunami Relief Charity.

The next release was the Downward Years to Come EP, which was recorded at the Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn with Kyle “Slick” Johnson. The record was released by Baltimore Label A389 Records in November 2012. The record was written by Palermo and Setta. The concept behind Downward Years to Come was a dedication to several different poets who had taken their own lives.

Setta and Palermo would again head into the studio in 2013, this time with Jeff Zeigler at Uniform Recordings to write their first album and sign with Relapse Records. The debut album Guilty of Everything was released on March 4, 2014.

    I am very disappointed as well but with their new song, I don't like the change in the vocal style, it was perfect the way it was, one of the reasons I started to like 'em and now it's gone, why did they have to change it? Fixin' somethin' that ain't broken. I hope the next record doesn't sound like this.

    Just seen them live. Very disappointed. They sound terrible live... It didn't sound similar to the album at all.

    New song is awesome. I finally hear the Hum influence that everyone keeps talking about.

    I guess I would need to listen to the records but in the live setting they seemed a bit bored.

    yeah HUM is heavier imo. like, you can write metal songs with that tone, and deftones have done that lol. NOTHING is just as good, similarities are mostly in the type of chords, some nothing songs are heavy but they are more in an alternative rock/punk spectrum of things imo.. id also like to mention another heavy-gazay band ; STARFLYER 59.

    I love Hum, but you should listen to Hum as well as Nothing not instead of. They compliment each other very nicely. Throw in a bit of Failure, Shiner and Centaur and everything will be lovely!
