We are back with a new live album: This Night (Live in Veruno)! Recorded at Veruno Festival on the 5th September 2021. After the World has stopped for almost two years, and most bands were forced to halt gigs in front of a live audience, we were called by organisers of Veruno Festival to play in Northern Italy and mark this way our return on stage.

Although in the middle of writing and recording the new studio album, we felt we left an unfinished job when we did our last gigs in 2019 in Italy opening for our friends and labelmates Anathema. So we accepted the invitation and prepared almost the same setlist, presenting a variety of tracks from our last studio album and spanning back through our discography.

Getting back on stage, with real people, with real decibels and the excitement of the live event, was a return to normal life and a more than ever thrilling experience. Little we knew, if not just before the show, that the whole thing was going to be recorded on multitrack! It felt just a perfect combination, a way to celebrate our return to the stage, and a way to show on a record what the band is today, six years after our last official live recording, Teide 2390.

Despite some technical problems that caused the loss of part of the show recordings, these seven tracks remained and they're presented here as we played them, without overdubs of any sort. The actual lineup is now a well-tested one for a few years, the one that's going to be on the new studio album. And one that helped render the songs on stage in a much more dynamic, sometimes quite different way.

New album recording

During Covid lockdown(s), as all gigs were cancelled or postponed, we started writing for the new album.

The aim is to have it done by the end of 2021/early 2022 and have it release in 2022...


Nosound's 2018 studio album Allow Yourself finds the band in a new space once more, wholly embracing Alternative/Electronic influences and stripped-down production techniques.

Watch the new video for “Don’t You Dare” in full and pre-order the album here

Scintilla (2016) began the process and Allow Yourself takes the band's minimalist vision even further, incorporating elements from The National, Notwist, and Portishead, alongside an approach to mixing inspired by Bowie's Blackstar and Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool.

Founder/writer Giancarlo Erra reflected on the direction of the new material, "The title Allow Yourself reflects this need for change, freeing myself from past stories and influences. The lyrics have also changed, becoming more about hope, the present, and how to influence it. The writing and sounds are now more focused and minimal, guitars were left behind in favour of analogue electronics. Acoustic drums work with drum machines, vocals are more central and upfront and feature a different approach to singing.

Available as a CD in digipack reverse-board packaging with a 16-page booklet, a limited crystal clear 180g vinyl edition in a reverse-board gatefold sleeve at 'early bird' price, and a fetching red t-shirt.

Orders through our official shop at Burning Shed will receive an exclusive signed postcard & wristband, immediate download of the first single "Don't You Dare" and, on release date, the full album as an uncompressed binaural mix & FLAC 5.1 surround sound mix. One customer from pre-orders will be randomly selected to receive a signed vinyl test-press.

SOL29 debut first time on vinyl

The debut album from Nosound on vinyl for the first time with remastered audio and featuring three bonus tracks.

" The most underrated album by one of the most underrated artists in Progressive music, an incredibly subtle yet moving debut that lays the foundations for Nosound to reach every further height.” - Sputnik Music

This edition of Sol29 sees the album's first ever release on vinyl, remastered from the original audio. Presented as a double LP in gatefold packaging complete with the original 2005 artwork.

Master getting ready

The digital and vinyl masters for the new studio album are getting ready.

As soon as we'll receive and approve the test press, we'll start finally announcing all the details.

In the meantime our reissues campaign goes on with a new one every month, and some gigs for later this year are being organised..

recording update & reissues

Final overdubs (drums, cello) are being recorded in Italy and US for the new 2018 studio album.

Pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone has been the rule from the inception through the songwriting and recording of this album, and we're excited because we hope to do the same with our old and new listeners and fans.

And in the process of the build up to the release, we're also releasing reissues of all back catalog in new packaging and remastered + extra tracks editions!

final recordings started

After two years from last studio album Scintilla, the new studio album is now going through the final recording stages and will be released in a few months time in 2018!

A lot of things changed from Scintilla, we considered it the end of cycle and the start of something new, and this change is completely materialised in the tracks we worked on for the new album.

Marking a stronger departure from the previous rock and guitar driven material, and a new vocal and songwriting approach, this is going to be Nosound most experimental album to date.

new lyrics and acoustic videos

We released two more videos from our latest album Scintilla.

Scintilla is actually our first ever 'lyrics video', but done in a slightly different way that's more the Nosound way than your average 'karaoke' lyrics video. Filmed in the same location where we shot many of the artwork pictures and videos, is a slow affair to loose yourself in the music flow.

Love Is Forever is the first of a series, shot and recorded at the newly renovated Nosound's own studio The Bench Music. With just two microphones, no edits and completely acoustic, is a way to show the songs in their original form. Join us on our socials and suggest which one you'd like to see next!

audio and video recordings

We recently had the pleasure to play a short set live on radio at Radiorock in Rome. The performance included couple of songs from new album Scintilla, an classic and a Radiohead cover.

Part of the performance was filmed and is available together with the interview that followed (in Italian), plus we prepared a special video gallery for the Radiohead cover, and the full set is available for free on our Soundcloud.

the new studio album

Nosound – Scintilla (Kscope)  

Nosound’s fifth album marks a major departure and includes guest appearances from Anathema’s Vincent Cavanagh and acclaimed Italian singer Andrea Chimenti

Inspired by personal upheaval and a desire for change, Scintilla is an emotionally complex and musically direct work presenting a stripped-down set of compositions that mark a major departure from Nosound’s trademark symphonic lushness and production precision.

After a decade of crafting a very particular type of widescreen melancholia and wistful imagery, Nosound’s fifth studio album Scintilla introduces a wholly new musical and visual approach for Giancarlo Erra’s ever-evolving band.

Anathema’s Vincent Cavanagh lends his distinctive vocals to two of the album’s tracks, and cellist Marianne De Chastelaine returns once more to the Nosound fold. Acclaimed Italian singer Andrea Chimenti co-writes and sings on the serene Sogno E Incendio.
