Nothing For Now

Nothing For Now
The Veil

NFN = Alkaline Trio + AFI + Dashboard Confessional


The best way to become self-assured is to get an ego first and then force yourself to live up to it, but Nothing For Now considers themselves a bit too epic. These recent SLC immigrants should heed the age-old wisdom of Confucius—”just because you can masturbate the fuck out of your instruments doesn’t mean that anyone will come to your shows” (which will probably not sound as good as this well-produced album). There are 12 tracks averaging out at just over four minutes of whininess apiece. It’s terrible to see such talent wasted.
