NERO Release First Track of Upcoming Album – ‘Truth’

NERO are making their highly anticipated return with the release of their new single ‘Truth‘, the first record of their upcoming third studio album Into The Unknown, due out in 2024.

‘Truth’ was the first track created for Into The Unknown, and acts as a gateway into the concluding chapter of the NERO trilogy, taking listeners full circle, beyond the post-apocalyptic future of the first two albums, into whatever may come next for humanity. Underpinned by a sample of Amanda Palmer reading Neil Gaiman’s The Mushroom Hunters, a poem that tackles themes essential to NERO – motherhood, scientific reverence, the past and the future, and humanity’s capacity for creation and destruction.

It’s been nearly a decade since NERO headlined Coachella’s Outdoor Stage (2015) where they premiered their second studio album Between II Worlds. NERO have worked on a handful of trailblazing projects, namely, alongside Baz Luhrmann on the soundtrack for The Great Gatsby, Muse, Skrillex, and – as the first of its kind – a Dubstep Symphony performed by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra broadcast live on Radio 1.

Since then, the band has turned their focus towards their side projects and personal lives, playing few live shows, and releasing one track in 2018. Into The Unknown marks a significant return for the trio, and the closing chapter in NERO’s album trilogy, which began with the chart-topping, Platinum-selling, and Grammy-winning Welcome Reality (2011).

NERO’s time away has not dimmed demand or expectation around a band that always pushed through the limits of electronic music. The musicality, live ambition, and cinematic scale that elevated NERO far beyond the confines of the clubbing landscape from which they emerged feels more essential than ever.
