Italian noise rock/instrumental outfit CANI DEI PORTICI will be releasing their new album, “Hype For Nothing”, on April 21st 2023 via Time To Kill Records.
The video of the album’s first single, “ASAP”, is now available HERE.
Director Daniel Olivas (Adult Swim, Matt Groening) comments:
“When I first heard the song, I immediately saw a storm come to mind. After learning that the message of the album had themes of struggle and the cruelty of reality vs expectations, the idea came pretty clear of a cliff being impossible to climb. Day to day can often feel like a never ending journey that you spend so much time climbing, only to have more unexpected external conflicts weigh you down. I think it’s pretty universal that when we finally get to the top, after persevering and even from the motivation of loved ones, the result can still be as devastating as the struggle”.
CANI DEI PORTICI offer an iridescent blend of instrumental sounds that embrace noise rock, post hardcore, stoner and much more.
“Hype For Nothing” is a concept album about disappointment and life’s expectations, about unattainable hopes and dreams, about efforts made to gain nothing: African and Asian migrants who don’t make it to Europe through the Mediterranean Sea, a satisfying job or a good occupational pension that can never be reached, an untimely death, deferring what we would like to do until better times. The title is a joke about the album release.
Famous manga artist Shintaro Kago took care of the album cover artwork.
