The Cleveland-based band is scheduled to release Attack on Nothing on February 2012.
Just a year after their eponymous debut, Cloud Nothings, the Cleveland, Ohio-based group fronted by Dylan Baldi are set to return with a stunning new album, 'Attack on Memory' on February 6th, 2012.
Released through Wichita Recordings, you can get your first taste of Cloud Nothings' new sound by listening to the deeply brooding album opener 'No Future, No Past' here:
If that's not enough, the album was produced by the king of noise rock, Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, Manic Street Preachers, and PJ Harvey). The pairing has resulted in a record that's a huge step forward for the band: more experimental, more varied, but still accessible, taking in post-rock, indie, post-punk and some sheer, unadulterated noise. When we say there are some heavy moments, we mean HEAVY moments, like the nine-minute 'Wasted Days' and the growling 'No Sentiment'.
In the months since the release of Cloud Nothings, Dylan Baldi has toured extensively and put a great deal of focus on the band's live show. Baldi played every instrument on their debut, but here, the full band recorded as-live in the studio – all members playing at once – giving a greater sense of the band's stage might.

1. No Future No Past
