‘This Is The Time’ for Nothing More as They Bring Innovative Live Show to NYC
The common phrase of the night from fans after seeing Nothing More rip apart the Studio at Webster Hall was “holy s--t!” The band is trekking around in support of their brand new self-titled disc and are gearing up to head out with Five Finger Death Punch and Volbeat later in the fall, as well as a headlining tour of their own in the late summer.
In awe, the crowd rocked out to new fast paced tracks ‘This Is The Time (Ballast),’ ‘First Punch,’ ‘Christ On Copyright’ and ‘Mr. MTV.’ Lucky New Yorkers were also able to buy the new album at the merch table before it dropped on June 24.
Sporting a bloody foot midway through the set, Jonny Hawkins is simply fearless as the band’s frontman; bassist Daniel Oliver and guitarist Mark Vollelunga are multi-instrumentalists and noteworthy backup vocalists in their own right; and drummer Paul O’Brien holds down the fort with his skills behind the main drum kit (while other percussive pieces are spread all around the stage).
If it’s not the immense stage command of the entire band and the chaos that gets your attention then it might be the three members taking on and playing the hell out of one bass on a unique contraption or an all-out four way drum duel.
Nothing More also treated the New York audience to a cover of the Nine Inch Nails song ‘We’re In This Together.’ After long and passionate chants from an unyielding crowd, it was clear they wanted some more from Nothing More. The group returned to the stage to perform the softer track ‘I’ll Be Okay’ and ended the unforgettable set with ‘Salem (Burn the Witch).’
We’ve tried to capture the energy and stage presence as well as all of the cool instrumental contraptions in the photo gallery below but the best way to experience Nothing More is live.
