SEPTEMBER 8 -25;
ANNOUNCE SPECIAL GUEST LACEY STURM (FLYLEAF)
AS DIRECT SUPPORT FOR DALLAS SHOW ON 9/14
3x Grammy-nominated and Gold-certified rock group NOTHING MORE have spent the past year relentlessly performing headlining shows across North America and UK/Europe and at rock’s largest festivals in support of their critically acclaimed 2022 album SPIRITS released via Better Noise Music. Combining unapologetically massive anthems, catchy hooks, and progressive music with introspective, philosophical lyrics and thought-provoking emotionalism, SPIRITS documents the tumultuous time the world experienced over the past two years and was accompanied by their self-designed meta-personality test, SPIRITS TEST (akin to tests such as Myers-Briggs, Big 5 and the Zodiac) and their debut graphic novel “SPIRITS VOL.1” (via Z2 Comics).
Today (August 11), NOTHING MORE have released their first-ever live recording with the acclaimed title track SPIRITS available now across digital platforms alongside a new music video. Stream “SPIRITS (LIVE)” at https://nothingmore.ffm.to/spiritslive. Watch its music video below or on YouTube HERE. “SPIRITS (LIVE)” follows the release of two revamped SPIRITS tracks, “BEST TIMES (feat. Lacey Strum)” and “YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT LOVE MEANS (PIANO VERSION)” featuring guest vocals from rock singer/songwriter Taylor Acorn, both of which are set to be included on a new deluxe version of SPIRITS due later this via Better Noise Music. Stay tuned for additional details to be announced in the coming weeks.
NOTHING MORE will return to stages across the U.S. this fall on the second leg of their “SPIRITS 2023” headlining tour with support from DEAD POET SOCIETY, HYRO THE HERO (rap-rocker and Better Noise Music labelmate), and POST PROFIT. The Live Nation-produced tour will kick off September 8 in Nashville, TN, and end in Charlotte, NC on September 25. NOTHING MORE are excited to share that “Best Times” guest vocalist Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf) will join them as direct support on their September 14 stop in Dallas, TX at The Factory.

ABOUT NOTHING MORE
Rock audiences count NOTHING MORE among the most cherished acts, the kind of band who straddle the line between populism and intimacy with every performance. The San Antonio, Texas-born quartet builds unapologetically massive anthems from catchy hooks. Crowd-pleasers clear a path for heady, confessional, thought-provoking emotionalism. Fresh rewards reveal themselves with repeat listens, welcoming like-minded seekers with rich melodicism, like the best of Deftones or Tool.
Those who saw the band on tour with hard rock heavyweights like Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, and Disturbed will attest to what The Guardian observed: “There’s a sophistication to NOTHING MORE’s angst that raises them above the tumult-tossed pit.”
Kerrang! named NOTHING MORE one of 22 Artists Shaping the Future of Rock, alongside Nine Inch Nails, Twenty One Pilots, and Bring Me The Horizon. And frontman Jonny Hawkins, who met guitarist Mark Vollelunga before they were old enough to drive, appeared with Billie Joe Armstrong, Dave Grohl, and Hayley Williams in the English tastemaker’s Top 50 Greatest Rockstars in the World.
Hawkins and Vollelunga started the band in 2003 and were quickly joined by bassist Daniel Oliver and later by drummer Ben Anderson. The band’s blend of explosive bombast and nuanced storytelling resulted in a half dozen Top 10 singles at Mainstream Rock Radio, including the No. 1 hit “Go to War” and the Sirius XM Octane song of the decade and Active Rock chart-topper “This is the Time (Ballast).” The Stories We Tell Ourselves earned a head-turning three Grammy nominations. They’re set to follow it up with a new album in 2022, which is filled with their most philosophical and primal music to date. The first offering, “TURN IT UP LIKE,” released in March 2022, is a fitting first taste of what’s to come.
NOTHING MORE appeals to fans of Linkin Park, Incubus, Rage Against The Machine, and all crucial acts that stoke relatable passion with authenticity and integrity. Memorize the arena-ready hooks. Get mesmerized by the intimate, communal live show. Dig deeper down the rabbit hole into the work of philosophers and artists like Eckhart Tolle, Carl Jung, and Alan Watts, who inspire the band. There’s a place for every type of rock fan with NOTHING MORE. Built to last, here to stay.
