On August 24th, Philadelphian band Nothing will return with a new studio album titled, Dance on the Blacktop. Due out through Relapse Records, it follows 2016’s Tired of Tomorrow and serves as the band’s third LP overall.

For the nine-track effort, the noise-rock outfit enlisted the talents of producer John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth). Tracking took place at Dreamland Studios in Woodstock, New York, following 23 days spent demoing in a “coffin-sized NYC apartment”. Much of Dance on the Blacktop draws on the life of founding member Domenic Palermo. In particular, Palermo was influenced by his time spent behind bars and the recent diagnosis of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, a neurodegenerative disease found in people with serious head injuries. Throughout the LP, there are songs that tell stories of self-loathing and self-destruction, as well as paranoia and anxiety stemming from his new illness.

The title, which is prison slang for a fight or altercation, is a “symbolic interpretation of the album’s philosophy.” Palermo elaborates in a statement, saying, “I’ve learned to bask in the absurdity of it all — in the chaos… There’s beauty in the confusion if you can learn to hold its hand.”
