Alt rock band and three-time Grammy nominee NOTHING MORE has released the music video for the song "Fade In/Fade Out". The emotionally resonant track has quietly amassed over 13 million streams. It's a testament to the devotion that NOTHING MORE fans have for band — and the fact that a powerful song will always finds its audience.
The heartbreaking video follows the constantly evolving and somewhat tumultuous relationship between a father and son while charting the ups and downs of the cycle of life. The cinematic clip, directed by Stephen Mallett, can be seen below.
Says lead vocalist Jonny Hawkins: "When I sing this song, I daydream about about my childhood... the days before my parents were broken apart by cancer. I think about how my dad taught me to throw a ball. I think about how my mom taught me to tie my shoes. I think about how my dad would always say 'hard work pays off,' trying to teach me a lesson while I was focused on a video game, too young to care. I remember my mother consoling me when I threw a paint brush to the ground, frustrated by an unintended slip of the hand. I will never forget what she said, 'Jonny, it's not a mistake, there are no such things as mistakes, just creative opportunities.' I think about the first moment I realized that they wouldn't be here forever. I think about how thankful I am."
Guitarist Mark Vollelunga states: "I got the idea for this song when my wife and I finally agreed on the name of our son — Fenix. I can only hope that my fire continues to burn in him long after I fade out — the same fire my father passed on to me. May we all remember our parents and never leave words or feelings left unsaid. Don't let it be too late…"
