Nothing More‘s headlining ‘The Truth Tour,’ featuring support from Of Mice & Men, Badflower and Palisades, kicked off last month in Phoenix, AZ, and is set to close later this week in San Antonio, TX. New York City hosted the run at Time Square’s PlayStation Theater earlier this month on March 10th.
Nothing More‘s closing set saw the Texas rockers exhibit their biggest and loudest concert performance in NYC to date, kicking off their set with single “Let ’em Burn” off of 2017’s well-received The Stories We Tell Ourselves. With an always shirtless Jonny Hawkins at the helm (donning black paint on half of his torso), the band went on to rock the Big Apple with fresh hits like “Don’t Stop,” “Funny Little Creatures,” “Go to War,” “Do You Really Want It?,” “The Great Divorce” and a few others off said fifth studio release.
Nothing More‘s 2014 self-titled LP also received some love that evening, with singles “Mr. MTV,” “This Is the Time (Ballast),” “Jenny” and a few other anthems dominating the show, which also featured CO2 blasts, hectic lights, and of course, ‘The Scorpion Tail,’ the band’s monstrous drum set fitted with a voice changer and other fun-looking gadgets. Rounded out by guitarist / backing vocalist Mark Vollelunga, bassist / backing vocalist Daniel Oliver and drummer Ben Anderson, the quartet ended their NYC stay with a cover of the Queen favorite “We Will Rock You,” a cover of Skrillex‘s “First of the Year (Equinox)” (which Jonny performed on his jungle gym Scorpion), and track “Salem (Burn the Witch)” from 2009’s The Few Not Fleeting.
