DCD2 / Fueled By Ramen artist nothing,nowhere. has revealed a brand new single entitled Memory Fracture.It is available now on all streaming platforms and is accompanied by a futuristic animated music video, directed by Eric ‘Shade’ Balderose of Code Orange – which is now streaming on nothing,nowhere.’s official YouTube channel.
Memory Fracture cybernetically fuses ethereal guitar transmissions and waves of crushing distortion. Elaborating on the song nothing,nowhere. commented, “I’m just making music I want to make. I’ll leave it up to the listener to unearth their own meanings and opinions.”
The new track follows nothing,nowhere.’s recent standalone single sledgehammer which Rock Sound hailed as “another perfect slice of introspective and intense alt-rap brilliance,” going on to add, “It’s dense, decadent and further cements Joe as one of the best to do it.” Notably, sledgehammer saw the Vermont based artist building on elements from the standout single hammer which originally appeared on his 2018 LP RUINER.
This week nothing,nowhere. will launch his eagerly anticipated 2022 North American headline tour. Featuring special guests POORSTACY, carolesdaughter, gucchighwaters, and Snarls, the tour is set to get underway on 21st April at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ and will continue through a performance on 27th May at New York City’s Irving Plaza.

Last year saw the release of nothing,nowhere.’s celebrated new album TRAUMA FACTORY. Available on all streaming platforms, TRAUMA FACTORY finds nothing,nowhere. once again emerging from darkness, shedding external expectation, and moving forward into the glow of pure creation. TRAUMA FACTORY is highlighted by fake friend, nothing,nowhere.’s first song ever to enter Billboard’s “Alternative Airplay” chart. The track is joined by a Mason Mercer directed official music video which spirals over nothing,nowhere.’s seamless alchemy of alternative, pop, rap, and punk.
The New York Times hailed TRAUMA FACTORY track, DEATH, as a “Scabrous, immensely satisfying emotional expurgation from Joe Mulherin that deploys early Beastie Boys drums and Rage Against the Machine bark-rapping in service of a rap-rock revival bathed in righteousness.” CLASH declared, “While human suffering or pain isn’t joyous, the special craft of nothing,nowhere. most certainly is,” and FLOOD praised album cut lights (4444) for its “minimalist trap beat,” adding it “sounds like a GothBoiClique single steeped in a turn-of-the-century boy-band aesthetic.” The FADER hailed early single blood (Feat. KennyHoopla and JUDGE) as “a strapping collaboration,” while UPROXXavowed, “it’s clear that there’s a lot more going into Joe Mulherin’s production style,” celebrating the song’s “hip-hop beats and a driving distorted bass line.”
nothing,nowhere. summarised the body of work detailing, “TRAUMA FACTORY is an accumulation of songs written during a confusing time. it is about accepting the present and following your true north through the pain and suffering of human life,” nothing,nowhere. revealed. He added, “I wanted to make an album that was truly genreless and inspire others to challenge themselves artistically. I believe the most inspiring art is unpredictable and unrestrictive. to me that’s what TRAUMA FACTORY is.”
nothing,nowhere. is the musical endeavor of Vermont songwriter, singer and guitarist Joe Mulherin. For Mulherin, nothing,nowhere. is about a connection. It’s one he finds with fans around the world, who gather to see him play on tour and to listen to his songs online. It’s that connection that urges the singer to place his fears aside and step onstage each night to share his art. He sees the potential to help, to make a change, however small it may be and that is why he brings his music out of the Vermont wildness.
