nothing,nowhere. Releases New Album “Trauma Factory”: Streaming
- American rapper and singer-songwriter Joe Mulherin, aka nothing,nowhere. released his fourth studio album “Trauma Factory” on February 19, 2021.
It is his first LP in three years. The album contains 15-track, featuring guest appearances from MISOGI, JUDGE and KennyHoopla.
Produced by Jay Vee, JUDGE, Joe Mulherin, Y2k2y and Zakk Cervini.
The album features punk rock and hip-hop sound like blink-182, YUNGBLUD and recent Machine Gun Kelly.
After the 2018 album "Ruiner”, he struggled panic attacks, anxiety and depression. But making the new album helped him.
Joe Mulherin told Alternative Press, “Trauma Factory is me coming back into music and putting out a full-length project once again with more material than ever to write it in terms of what's been going on in my life and all that. It's definitely helped me. If I didn't have music, I guess I'd have to find something else to do to release the emotions and all that.”
He created the album in two years, and wrote over a hundred songs for the project.
“And it came to a point where I had over a hundred songs for the project, and I obviously narrowed them down into what is now Trauma Factory. But I like being experimental with the process as well. With ruiner, I made that LP in two weeks, and I made this LP in two years.”
He said of the album, “Don't be afraid to follow your gut and follow your intuition. Don't be obsessed with what other people think of you. And just create from the heart. Art isn't meant to be one way or the other. And on a broader scale, lyrically, obviously there's some vulnerable stuff in there because it's me. But it's OK to have bad days. I was driving the other day, and I saw a sign that said “Every storm eventually has to run out of rain.” And I thought that was really cool because that's just how I've been feeling lately. I may not be exactly where I want to be, but every day is a journey. I think Trauma Factory, lyrically, conveys that. And I hope that people can find comfort in listening to it and just know that life is a process, and you'll get to where you want to be eventually.”
