The Truth Train is once again departing

introcollage2small.png

Visit Political City; meet fellows like The Orange Orangutan and Frank “Sluggerhand”; see the Eiffel Tower of the jungle; travel in a stream of signs; and other soon to be favourite activities you gain access to through our treasure trove of albums

Welcome. Nice to see you have found your way here. This is a truth called nothing. A few words about what that is.

You can think of a truth called nothing as an independent rock band. Terms like art rock, post-modern stadium rock, alternative rock, or experimental electro prog may be useful. Actually, we are more of a production duo than a band. We play live sometimes, but we usually just share our work through the great collective subconscious. That’s our focus.

Another useful point is that we are like one of those mythic bands that you wish existed, or perhaps like a band in a work of fiction. Like when you read a story and characters talk about this great rock band, that could very well be us. We are quite undiscovered and secret, so you could plausibly have us all to yourself. We could be ”your thing”.

We have new music in the pipeline for release soon. It is part 3 in our EP project. So we’re also relaunching this website. We used to update every week. We probably won’t anymore, but we’ll put things up occasionally. Our influences and interests are varied, so this was always meant to sprawl out in various directions. Lots of the material is about our music, but there are plenty of other things as well. Profoundest philosophy, entertainingest stories, controversialest politics, side-splittingest jokes and whatnot. You can find some categories in the menu above. Try to work it out according to your own comfort level.

That’s pretty much what it is, to sum it up. Find the music at Bandcamp, Spotify and other places. And take a look at the stuff here.

Tales from the Old City 1

Welcome to the first in a series of articles from us here at The Vestige, about the post-modern stadium rock band a truth called nothing’s rich history. Over the coming months, we will get to know these counter-culture savants in a way that hasn’t been possible before. We will be taking a look at different periods of the band’s production, from the making of some classic albums to the forming of the BOF itself. To help us, we have been given access to an extensive archive of documents, in addition to our interviews with the members and associates of the band.

Music for the 20% Non-Believers


Here comes a preview from Science – Like Religion But Real, the upcoming a truth called nothing EP for the neglected atheist population of the world! In many markets, the theists make up as much as 80% of people. And they don’t exactly lack for music catering to their (let’s be honest – extremely strange and reality-denying) beliefs. Why should we continue to let the “christian music” mega-industry suppress our need to sing our appreciation for the evidence-based power of science and the glory of the natural world? After all, these things are true whether you believe in them or not!

Single sover by Adam Sobranie

Next week, we’ll ruminate these subjects to extensive detail and musical perfection in Science – Like Religion But Real, a five-song EP all about science, religion, god, man, robots, space, sex, simplicity, politics, Trump, walls, socialism, and so much more. For now, listen to this exclusive edit of the title track! And remember to “like”, “subscribe”, “comment”, “follow”, and all the other things one absolutely must ask for in compensation for nominally “free” musical services! And remember… Trust in science, feel good about the future, listen to a truth called nothing, and always, always rock the road.

Science – Like Religion But Real will be released on May 3rd, and it will be available on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Bandcamp, and several other services. See you in a week!

Announcing the second EP by (a truth called nothing)

The last time we made a concept record about religion, we ended up with several good songs but a record that was so claustrophobia-inducing in its minimalism that it has been left mercifully forgotten, entombed in the terrible city in which it was given birth. This time, we’re not holding anything back. We’re not on the fence anymore. We’re firing on all cylinders. We’re no fans of minimalism right now – we want extra sauce with our postmodern stadium rock.

Sciencetease.pngScience – Like Religion But Real is the title of the second installment in the EP Project. We’ve concocted five songs about religion and science that will take you on quite a journey, in our aim to present an argument that you can actually cut out 100% of the magical thinking while losing 0% of the wonder.

Science – Like Religion But Real by a truth called nothing. Coming to a streaming service near you this May 3rd.

“And I would even fight God for you”

Album cover by Chad Fabuloso D’Annunzio

Look at an empty room where people were hanging out and doing various activities only hours ago. Think about faith. Imagine faith as that empty room. There it is, the blueprint for atcn’s lost concept album, May 25th. Keep hold of that image, please, as it will help you focus on what you’re about to read. The following text was written by Jonah Leslie Bradshaw, a true believer in religion. This is to show that we as an atheist organisation are more than willing to allow contrasting viewpoints.

Something happened on the day he died (David Bowie one year ago)

We wrote these fragments a day after his death. We haven’t really looked at them since, but the idea came up to do a re-run on the one year anniversary and see what came out. One year later comments are in green. We recommend that you listen to either Scary Monsters, Let’s Dance or Heathen while reading this. Thank you. Sorry. Our condolences. /Adam & Sam
