Nothing have shared the video for their new single ‘Curse Of The Sun’ exclusively through NME.
Taken from their album ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’, the video was filmed at shows in New York, Washington DC and Philadelphia on tour in May. It’s directed by Jimmy Hubbard, who has previously made videos for Carcass and Nail.
The Philadelphia four-piece have supported Diiv, Dinosaur Jr and Jane’s Addiction for the album as well as appearing at US festivals including Lollapalooza, Levitation and Spillover.
They start a UK tour on Sunday (September 11), having played a one-off album launch show at London’s Moth Club in May to launch the album.
Speaking about ‘Curse Of The Sun’, singer Dominic Palermo said: ““This song is a nothing more than a declaration of war with the sun. It’s the centre of the universe that’s to blame for spawning this epidemic of life that is laughably plagued by death. The dark Casanova sprouting humans who live to have everything they can get their hands on, just so they can die and litter it all behind. I’m often reminded by this when we’re playing these big venues filled with hundreds of humans, so it only seemed natural to film in a live setting. That’s the only reason I chose to do a live video actually. They’re normally fucking stupid. Well, that and because Jimmy was filming it all.”
