Nothing enlists Kurt Vile, goes goth in a dark new music video

Philadelphia’s heavy shoegaze scene is composed of pretty much one band: Nothing. And Nothing’s not up to nothing. The group’s debut LP, Guilty Of Everything, came out earlier this month on Relapse, and the band will shortly be heading out on tour with Chicago’s own Pelican. In anticipation of all that grinding, plodding musical intensity, The A.V. Club has the premiere of the group’s new video for “Bent Nail.” Featuring a veggie-centric cameo from fellow Philadelphian Kurt Vile, the clip was directed by The Art Of The Steal and As The Palaces Burn director Don Argott.

Nothing’s tour dates are below, and Guilty Of Everything is available via Relapse Records and iTunes.
