These upcoming dates will showcase the soaring melodies constructed throughout No Nations. Propelling the albumÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s free-flowing modern rock textures is the breathy vocal interplay of the husband and wife duo of Adam Kittredge and Antonia Freybe-Smith. Guitarist Piers Henwood (a cousin of Kittredge), bassist Jocelyn Greenwood and drummer Luke Renshaw coalesce the bandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s trademark atmospheric sound evident in the single Ã¢â‚¬Å“Heading For NowhereÃ¢â‚¬Â which recently made its video world premiere through AOLÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Spinner Network in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.
