Three-time Grammy-nominated rock outfit Nothing More have just released their latest studio album Spirits via Better Noise Music across all platforms. 

Pairing unapologetically massive anthems, catchy hooks, and progressive music with introspective, philosophical lyrics and thought-provoking emotionalism. From the Top 5 Active Rock charting lead single “Tired Of Winning” and its fan-driven extended version “Tired Of Winning/Ships In The Night” to fist-pounding banger “Turn It Up Like” and their most recent impassioned single “You Don’t Know What Love Means,” Spirits documents the impact the past two years of lockdown and turmoil has had on the world, capturing society’s desperation, mental health struggles and self-realisations. 

The Everblack Podcast spoke to Nothing More guitarist Mark Vollelunga about their new album ‘Spirits’, the graphic novel he created to tie in with the albums concept, the meta-personality test, “Spirits Test,” developed by frontman Jonny Hawkins, challenges they have faced on their current tour with In This Moment, possible return down under and more!

Inspired by philosophers including Alan Watts and Carl Jung, Nothing More have also launched their own meta-personality test, “Spirits Test,” developed by Hawkins, which measures psychometrics to determine your “Spirit Type”—a personality description that shows your correlating elements, paths and perceptions.

In their latest music video for “Best Times,” Nothing More stress the power of living in the moment. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Robyn August (“Party With Me,” Snoop Dogg, Pitbull, Set It Off), the video displays the band’s unique mix of rock balladry and the full-on rock that the band is known for.
