Baldi stated that this project was not intended to be a full Cloud Nothings project, but was rather a scrapped solo album idea which was intended to be released on 15 Passenger, which is run by Tim Kasher. He also explained that he has “plans to release something else down the line.”
Cloud Nothings have a total of five studio albums, ranging from their self-titled debut released back in 2011, to Last Building Burning, released back in 2018. The latest studio album release blended in elements of punk, post-hardcore, emo and noise rock into the group’s unique sound.
“It’s not without its weaknesses, but Last Building Burning is the perfect album for punk fans looking for something new. It will make listeners want to get up and move (and possibly start punching each other),” mxdwn reviewer John Coakley explained. ” In spite of some occasionally lackluster vocals, the instrumentals on this album are excellent, particularly in the drumming department. Punk, hardcore and indie rock fans should most certainly give Last Building Burning a listen.”
