When the Nutones return to the stage on Sunday for their first show of the season, they will host the San Diego Chargers, the NFL’s second-leading scorer and the NFL champions, in their stadium for the first time since 2002.
The Chargers’ home opener in 2020 was canceled in favor of an outdoor stadium because of Hurricane Florence.
Since then, San Diego has hosted a couple of regular-season games.
That’s also when the Nutons were a part of the Chargers’ inaugural season in 1999.
On Friday, Nutone released its first-ever concert album, which includes songs from the band’s debut album, “Lights, Camera, Noise.”
Fans can get a first look at the album at a press conference on Friday.
“Lows and nights of noise,” the album’s title says.
It’s a nod to the band having its own set of headphones.
The Nutones have a history of releasing albums during the NFL season, which can be tricky when you’re competing with the likes of the Giants and Chargers.
In 2019, the band played its first game in San Diego and played two consecutive home games there in 2021 and 2022.
