Nothing More have digitally released an extended version of their song “Tired Of Winning / Ships In The Night.” The track will appear on the band’s new album “Spirits“ (out October 14) and the soundtrack for the upcoming film “The Retaliators” (out September 14).
In other news, the band have also announced that they have teamed up with Z2 Comics for a new graphic novel titled “Spirits Vol. 1.” The book, which was written by Dan Watters and illustrated by Christian Rosado, is expected to be released in spring 2023. Jonny Hawkins commented:
“The comic book focuses on four of the Spirit Types. As we were making the album, I came up with the concept for the Spirits Test. Imagine if the zodiac had a baby with the Meyers Briggs personality test, and that baby came out with a fascination with cryptic iconography and metal music… that is this test. Each of us has a Spirit Type and this comic book is an artistic expression of how those Spirit Types come to life in a world very much like our own.”
Mark Vollelunga added:
“I set forth on this collaboration with Z2 comics, and our manager, Will Hoffman, with the idea to expand the Nothing More world and allow the reader to dive deeper down the rabbit hole and elaborate on what these Spirit Types mean; where they came from and why they exist. We wanted to write stories that invoke a compelling sense of empathy and wonder while maintaining a very personal connection to Nothing More songs.
Dan Watters was the perfect dude for the job. He’s such a brilliant, captivating writer. Both of us shared inspiration from shows like The OA and Sense 8 and we wanted to accentuate the differences all people have when something in your life wrecks you… and that even though these differences may seem polarizing, we all still need each other. It’s because of these differences that you learn to survive and grow. This story shows that great strength and mutual respect come to those who learn how to embrace one another despite such differences.”
