“Hundreds of people have been killed in mass shootings over the past several years. Almost everyone has chosen the red team or the blue team and we’re stuck in this mode where we fight over political problems instead of human solutions. More guns or less guns isn’t the question. The real question is, why are we killing each other?— Nothing More
That is the question posed by rock Act Nothing More in their latest thought-provoking video for “Let ‘Em Burn,” fueled by the growing fear and divisiveness in the U.S. and how we’ve grown comfortable with telling lies and being lied to. The 3x Grammy-nominated alt/rock band has often used its music to critique social and political issues, from mental illness to the false need for materialism, but never in such a scorching way as the band is doing with its new music video, from the band’s current album, Stories We Tell Ourselves. Directed by Ben Roberds of award-winning company, Dominar Films, it features a performance video that offers a front row seat to the new norm of what’s become the day-to-day life in America that artistically portrays the tragic truth of epidemic mass shootings. Check the video out HERE.
Hailing from San Antonio, Texas, Nothing More is known for their radio-heavy tracks that continue to top the Billboard charts. After the success of hits like “This Is The Time (Ballast),” “Mr. MTV” and “Jenny,” all of which hit within the top 15 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart, Nothing More has another successful output with their latest album The Stories We Tell Ourselves. The first single “Go To War” hit #1 on Rock Radio and got the attention of The Recording Academy, followed by “Just Say When” and now “Let ‘Em Burn.” In addition to thoughtful, poetic lyrics, Nothing More is also regarded for their incredible live show full of frenetic energy and featuring a massive stage prop called the Scorpion Tail. This 400-pound, 14-foot tall Mad Max-like animated structure was built by bassist Daniel Oliver from scrap metal and salvaged auto and motorcycle parts. Vocalist Jonny Hawkins rides the contraption onstage while simultaneously creating digital electronic effects for the songs.
On February 21, the band kicks off their headlining “The Truth Tour” with support form Of Mice And Men, Badflower and Palisades, which comes after a massive summer 2018 jaunt across America with Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin and Bad Wolves and follows a fall 2018 Canadian tour with Three Days Grace, Bad Wolves and Fozzy.
“The Truth Tour” is rooted in the concept that music and the spirit of rock’n’roll are pure forms of truth that can bring people together, spark new ideas, new ways of thinking and through that, inspire changes in ourselves and in our world. The band has partnered with the leaders of voter registration, HeadCount who will be setting up a pop-up activation to encourage sign-ups at each stop, as well as partnering with mental health charity, To Write Love on Her Arms by donating $1 from each ticket to support the movement.
