Washington D.C.-based metallers NOTHINGFACE will release their sought-after original debut album recorded in 1995 through indie labels SICK6 Records and Play The Assassin later this spring.
Limited to 500 vinyl copies worldwide, the 10-song self-titled NOTHINGFACE debut (remastered by Drew Mazurek [HELLYEAH, LINKIN PARK, GWAR]) will be released on a 140-gram clear vinyl with blood-splatter imprints on Tuesday, May 26. Six of the tracks would show up on the bands DCide Records label debut, "Pacifier", while the other four have gone unheard until now. The album will also be available via iTunes and other digital outlets through SICK6 Records.

NOTHINGFACE's fourth album, "Skeletons", was released in April 2003 via TVT Records. The group disbanded in February 2004, citing musical differences, internal turmoil and label troubles. NOTHINGFACE reformed a year later with the lineup of Matt Holt, Tom Maxwell, Jerry Montano (bass) and Tommy Sickles (drums) and went on to do a small U.S. club tour before Maxwell and Montano launched the HELLYEAH project with former PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott and members of MUDVAYNE.
