NOTHING releases their fourth full-length The Great Dismal via Relapse Records. Recorded throughout quarantine with producer Will Yip at Pennsylvania’s Studio Four, The Great Dismal explores existentialist themes of isolation, extinction, and human behavior in the face of 2020’s vast wasteland.
“The Great Dismal refers to a swamp, a brilliant natural trap where survival is custom fit to its inhabitants,” Domenic Palermo states. “The nature of its beautiful, but taxing environment and harsh conditions can’t ever really be shaken or forgotten too easily.”
The album also arrives just prior to the band’s ten year anniversary and follows their live-streamed record release show last night, The Great Dismal: An Auditory And Ocular Trauma Featuring Nothing and Full Of Hell, which was purposefully formulated as a way to support live music workers worldwide with a proper paid gig while venues and their staff are out of work due to the pandemic.
