Two years after Tired of Tomorrow, Philly-based band Nothing announced the release of a new album. Dance Of The Blacktop is out on August 24th via Relapse Records. It was produced by John Agnello. We already shared “Zero Day”; “Blue Line Baby” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video below.
The song tells a story of the Kensington/Frankford section of North Philadelphia in the early 1990’s, amidst its full blown opioid outbreak, using street names and landmarks as the stories protagonists. Frontman Domenic Palermo explains: “Looking around at the friends and family that are still around that came from down there, I’ll always be touched by what can come out of all that chaos and suffering. Children forced to learn loss early, faced with immeasurable odds and all the while this train continually hovers over your head, taunting you with its irony that there wasn’t a way out.”
