Nevermen Announce New York and Los Angeles Performances; Self-Titled Debut out Jan. 29


“Together at last – Mike Patton, Tunde Adebimpe and Adam ‘Doseone’ Drucker.  One of the many excellent things about this delightfully chewy collaboration is that it does sometimes manage to sound like the three principals’ best-known bands playing in the same room at once.   * * * * (Four Stars) – MOJO

Pre-orders for the 10-song album are available now, with iTunes pre-orders  ( offering an instant download of both “Tough Towns,” a song Rolling Stone described as “a quirky, cinematic avant-pop single,” and “Mr. Mistake,” which premiered in early December via Pitchfork.

Nevermen is neither side-project nor super group; it’s merely meant to be — a years-in-the-making partnership in which these men shared all duties, discovering their collective sound with the sort of glee and freedom usually reserved for first-timers. Amid this wild, weird churn of rock, pop, rap, soul, and other, it’s shockingly easy to lose track of who’s singing at what moment, and that’s the point: to quote Tunde/Adam/Mike in song, “The frontman digests its self.” Nevermen, the album, finds these three giants shredding their egos to get at the heart of why they do what they do, to explore the hopes and fears and wins and losses of anyone who carves career out of what started as dream.
