Nothington is set to release a new album this Fall. BYO is set to release “Roads, Bridges, and Ruins,” the band’s second full-length album, on October 6, 2009. Having returned again to Scott Llamas at Pop Smear Studios to record, the four-piece entered into the studio this past May with one thing in mind – to do it bigger and better, and if not, to give up.
As with any struggling young band, the realities and challenges of life on the road, unpaid bills, and shaky relationships was becoming increasingly troublesome. Luckily for us, what the band did do was dig deeper and create something that would reflect their changing lives through an evolving sound. “Roads, Bridges, and Ruins” features ten brand new songs written during the course of the last two years since their first record, “All In” (BYO Records, 2007) was released. The 10 songs on the new album are twangy, country-influenced melodies with dueling vocals that mix Jay’s whiskey soaked growl and Chris’ brash punk melody (and a whole heap of soul). Fans of Nothington will be pleasantly surprised to find that many of their songs are sped up with a harder edge.
Nothington will be out on the road in late summer, early fall, with a confirmed stop at the upcoming The Fest in Gainesville, FL.
In the meantime, Nothington will be playing a handful of West Coast shows in the following weeks:
