If you didn’t know it by now (because you’re living under some kind of soundproof rock), Philadelphia’s Nothing recently released a new single ‘Vertigo Flowers’ off their newly-announced album Tired of Tomorrow, which is due out May 13th via Relapse Records. Having offered a shoegaze revival with 2014’s Guilty of Everything, the band’s 2016 return is one of the most anticipated in the loud-and-low alt-rock realm.

Of the track’s inspiration, frontman Domenic Palermo explains:

“I was walking to the bank one day with a couple friends and I believed a car full of men was following me around. I walked through the parking lot and into a Walmart and hid there for a couple hours. I was experiencing a new consistent spell of vertigo that I believed may have been a direct result of a recent brain trauma and hospital stay. Everything seemed hazy and for a few weeks I was having a hard time sorting everything out. In the studio the vertigo never really stopped so a lot of the lyrics I had previously wrote for songs I decided to change because whatever was going on in my head I wanted out.”
