Cloud Nothings announce ‘Life Without Sound’

Cloud Nothings announces new album 'Life Without Sound'

Cloud Nothings is back today to announce its followup to 2014’s Here And Nowhere Else. Due January 27th for Carpark Records, Life Without Sound is the band’s new 9-song LP. To celebrate its announcement, the band is sharing lead single “Modern Act”.

Dylan Baldi maintains simple, admirable standards in quality. “A thing I like to do with all of my records is drive around with them,” the 25-year-old Cloud Nothings frontman says. “In high school, I would listen to music for hours like that: just driving through the suburbs of Cleveland. And if it sounds good to me in that context and I can think of high school me listening to it and saying, ‘That’s okay,’ I feel good about the record. This is the one that’s felt best.”

For more than a year, Baldi was able to write these songs and flesh out them out with his bandmates – drummer Jayson Gerycz and bassist TJ Duke – before they finally joined producer John Goodmanson (Sleater Kinney, Death Cab for Cutie) at Sonic Ranch in El Paso, Texas, for three weeks in March of 2016.

“Generally, it seems like my work has been about finding my place in the world,” Baldi says. “But there was a point in which I realized that you can be missing something important in your life, a part you didn’t realize you were missing until it’s there-hence the title. This record is like my version of new age music,” he adds. “It’s supposed to be inspiring.”

It is.
