Today (September 8), 3x-Grammy-nominated and gold-certified rock act NOTHING MORE release the deluxe version of their critically acclaimed 2022 album SPIRITS via BETTER NOISE MUSIC. SPIRITS–DELUXE VERSION features six bonus tracks including three live recordings—the first-ever live releases from the group—captured from their sold-out headlining concert at Irving Plaza in New York, New York. There’s also an EDM remix of “TIRED OF WINNING” by AHEE & Cymek and two previously released updated singles including “BEST TIMES” featuring Lacey Sturm of Flyleaf. Stream and/or download SPIRITS–DELUXE VERSION now HERE.
“This is our first-ever, OFFICIAL release, of live recordings from an electric night in NYC,” says frontman JONNY HAWKINS. “The relationship we have with our fans is exceptional and the energy from that night really shines through the recordings. We also have an EDM remix of ‘Tired of Winning,’ an acoustic take on ‘Best Times,’ and last but not least…a duet with the one and only Lacey Sturm from Flyleaf.”
NOTHING MORE—Hawkins (vocals), Mark Vollelunga (guitar), Daniel Oliver (bass), and Ben Anderson (drums)—have also shared the new music video for their snarling, fist-raising anthem “FACE IT (LIVE).” Watch it streaming below or via YouTube HERE.
“‘FACE IT’ illustrates a very similar narrative to the amazing story ‘Life of Pi’ by Yann Matel,” elaborates HAWKINS. “There are times in our lives when we need to let our dark passenger take control so we can ‘Face It.’ Just like when Pi becomes the tiger when survival is on the line. It’s a pumped up, epic anthem designed to give one the courage to silence their inner angel in order to face their demons; to call on the shadow from the bitter side of truth because the reality is that we are all angels and animals. That’s what makes us human. We are not one or the other, but rather both simultaneously and we know this transformation can’t rely on anyone but ourselves.
Tonight (September 8), NOTHING MORE will kick off the second leg of their “SPIRITS 2023” headlining tour in Nashville, TN with support from DEAD POET SOCIETY, HYRO THE HERO (rap-rocker and Better Noise Music labelmate), and POST PROFIT. The Live Nation-produced tour stretches until September 25 and will see “Best Times” guest vocalist Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf) join as direct support on the September 14 show in Dallas, TX at The Factory. Tickets and limited VIP meet & greet upgrades are available at https://nothingmore.net/.

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.
