Background and release
Nero began the campaign for their second studio album in November 2013, announcing it by posting an ambient piece looped for a duration of 28:08 on their SoundCloud.
In February 2015, the band's record label, MTA Records, posted a picture of a tweet by Stuart Hawkes stating that he had just started mastering the new album by Nero. On 19 March 2015, Nero announced they had finished the album, and premiered its second single, "The Thrill".
On 10 April, it was announced that the album would be called Between II Worlds and it would be released on 28 August 2015 (coinciding with their recurring use of the number '2808') but the release date was later delayed to 11 September. The album was made available to pre-order on the same day, with "Satisfy" and the title track offered as an instant download for those who pre-order a copy (thus being a promotional single.) The album features a reworked version of "Into the Past", from The Great Gatsby soundtrack.
Over the weekend of 24 May 2015, Nero launched the promotional single "Dark Skies" on Spotify. The only way to listen to the stream was to add the album Between II Worlds to one's playlist and the track would then reveal itself. Though the song has previously been played at many live events, it has never been released until this date.
"Satisfy" was released as the lead single on May 13, 2014 and did not receive a music video or much promotion.
"The Thrill" was then released as the second single on March 20, 2015. A music video for the track was released on May 7, 2015.
"Two Minds" was released as the third single from Between II Worlds on August 21, 2015. It signified a more pop orientated sound for the trio which had not been seen in their previous works. A music video for the song was released on August 4, 2015. It was directed by Greg Jardin. The song's intro was increased in length for the video only.
"Into the Night" was released as the fourth single from Between II Worlds on January 8, 2016. An animated music video was released for the single on November 30, 2015. It featured animation by Red Knuckles. It was directed by Markus Lundqvist & Dan Stephens, the latter being a member of Nero. The song was shortened for the video.
On the week ending October 3, 2015, "Between II Worlds" peaked at #1 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic albums chart.
