NOTHING have released a new video for their song “Eaten By Worms”, taken from the new album ‘Tired of Tomorrow’, coming May 13 on CD/LP/Deluxe 2xLP/Cassette/Digital via Relapse Records. Directed by Kevin Haus, the full video can be seen below.
The band’s singer and guitarist Dominic Palermo commented:
“The song is very much about being in pain and dancing with the feverish curiosity of whether this life is any more significant then what comes after or what came before. It’s very much about letting go. “Kevin and I began to develop a story around these concepts. Kevin was interested in writing something about how we’re all connected by the tragic in life and our inherent need to make sense of it all. We talked about an incident I had in Oakland and common experiences of being in the hospital on demerol, morphine, anesthesia, anxiety meds and a host of other painkillers. I was basically taking the same medication cocktail that killed Michael Jackson. We immediately latched on to MJ’s mythological, Hermes-like being and his obsession with lost youth and Peter Pan, as well as the tragedy of his own life. Our take was that from tragedy arises this simple innocent that’s led into the unknown.”
Have a laugh
Were friends until the bitter end
So fry our heads
Plastic sheets, puddles of sweat
Leave what you left
Blessed be the setting sun
It’s load of fun
But you know?
But you know
It’s so practical
Yet so magical
But you know
