Nothing More has released their follow up album to the 2014 self-titled, Nothing More album.
Holy sh** guys, the wait is finally over. After months of hype and being teased by the release of FIVE singles, Nothing More has finally dropped their heavily anticipated album, The Stories We Tell Ourselves, the bands first since their self-titled 2014 album, Nothing More.
I’ll be honest; I love Nothing More as much as the next guy, but I was skeptical about this album. With five singles being released prior to the full record being released, I was spooked that my ears would be over saturated, but oh my god – this album kicks some serious ass. Staying true to the mantra of the lies we tell ourselves in order to escape the truths of reality.
Incorporating just about every musical element one can think of, The San Antonio rockers deliver a complete album. From headbanging hard-rock, soft acoustic vibes, a little electronic action, to some insane screaming vocals, Johnny Hawkins and fellow band mates really push the limits and showcases their talents.
The album starts in overdrive with the scene being set in just 17 seconds with the interlude “Ambition / Destruction” then diving head first into my personal favorite track on the album, “Do You Really Want It.”
From there on out, the album never loses any momentum. Give it a listen. You wont regret it! In fact, you’ll probably listen to it through its entirety immediately after.
