THE BAND IS COLLABORATING WITH STEFAN AND NIKE ON A LIMITED EDITION VIOLENT FEMMES SIGNATURE SKATEBOARD SHOE THIS AUGUST

 

 

Violent Femmes have unveiled another song from their much-anticipated new album, HOTEL LAST RESORT. A rambunctious new rendition of the band's classic "I'm Nothing" featuring pro skateboarder Stefan Janoski is available now.

 

"'I'm Nothing' explores the modern conundrum of people needing to attach labels to other human beings," bassist Brian Ritchie says. "We refute that in human terms and also with our music."

 

A polymath athlete, artist, and musician in his own right, Janoski reached out to the band to discuss collaborating on a Violent Femmes skate shoe for his Nike SB product line. Delighted by his passion, especially for "I'm Nothing," Violent Femmes decided to re-record the song with a few new lyrics and their new friend on guest vocals.

 

"We're kind of like jazz musicians or folk musicians," Ritchie continues. "We don't really see the harm in revisiting a song or doing a new version. So here's Stefan, coming from the outside and having such enthusiasm for 'I'm Nothing,' we thought it was a good time to revisit it and invited him to help out on the vocals. He was so enthusiastic about it, it was like he was floating on clouds while he was in the studio."
