In a recent interview with The FADER, rapper/producer nothing,nowhere. described how creation of his song "dread." "I had a breakdown — my anxiety was terrible. Yet in the blink of an eye, I was writing, and it started pouring out of me." After cancelling a tour due to severe anxiety and depression, the musician found his way back to music, and "dread" is a raw document of his harrowing journey. The song's music video is similarly intense in its depiction of nothing, nowhere.'s real-life hospitalization. Thankfully, there's a happy ending: nothing, nowhere. is revitalized, and his tour behind 2018's album RUINER is rescheduled (see dates below) with guests Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, Smrtdeath, and St. Panther. Most importantly, he's looking forward to what lies ahead: "The future is bright, and I'm looking forward to talking to kids and hearing people’s stories."
