2022 has been an electrifying year for the music industry, with bands returning to the road and unleashing some much needed energy on the stage. Nothing More is just such a band. Honestly, if you know anything about the band’s explosive live performances, you’d agree that it’s hard to imagine NoMo staying still for very long – much less two whole years. Their return to New Jersey was justifiably celebrated.
Despite being on a country wide co-headlining tour with Asking Alexandria and supporting acts Atreyu and Eva Under Fire, Nothing More had the headliner spot all to itself this past Friday night in Montclair, NJ. Asking Alexandria’s frontman Danny Worsnop regretfully developed laryngitis and had to cancel their performance. The night was not cut off too early, however, as both Eva Under Fire and Atreyu had the chance to lengthen their sets and add a song or two to their setlist. Check out below for photos of both outstanding sets.
Touring ahead of their highly anticipated fourth studio album, Nothing More rightfully kicked it right into high gear with newly released “Turn It Up Like (Stand in the Fire),” a dizzying high-octane track that set the tone for the remainder of the night. Right from the start, the crowd was ecstatic and frantic, riled by a wall of sound that hit head-on with no sign of letting up. Following up with “Let ’em Burn” and the explosive “Christ Copyright,” Nothing More delivered a pretty well balanced set list that reflected their blazing energy, while catering to older fans and new. Crowd favorites like “Jenny” and “Go To War” brought out the palpable thrill of being there in the moment once again after two years, while heartfelt ballads “I’ll Be Ok” and “Fadein/Fadeout” offered a balancing moment of calm in the midst of the storm.
From my first ever introduction to the band at an NYC venue all the way back in 2015, to the numerous performances in between, all the way up to here – NoMo has never once disappointed. With their smoldering intensity, sweeping chords, unpredictable drums and emotive lyrics, Nothing More is a fascinating band that doesn’t care about checking off genre boxes, instead focusing on cranking out some truly awesome music.
The tour has a couple more weeks to go before wrapping up in Houston, TX on June 19th. Be sure to catch Nothing More live, and stay tuned for info on the upcoming fourth studio album!
