Jeffrey Nothing, also known as Jeff Hatrix (born Jeffrey Lewis Hetrick), formerly the haunting voice and co-founder behind Cleveland's pioneering alterna-metal and industrial collective MUSHROOMHEAD, has resurfaced with his solo project JEFFREY NOTHING (also known as NOTHING). Released today is a brand new single, "Fragile Mind". The track is available now for download and across all streaming platforms.
Jeffrey Nothing has re-teamed up with fellow former MUSHROOMHEAD guitarist Thomas Church following their departure from the band this past March 2018. Also appearing is former MOTOGRATER and THE BROWNING drummer Noah "Shark" Robertson and vocalist Ian D, bassist Kahler Hatrix, among other members yet to be announced.
Produced and written by Jeffrey and Thomas Church and mixed/mastered by Joshua Wickman (Dreadcore Productions) and Matt Johnson (Revelation Studios), NOTHING has again teamed up with acclaimed tattoo artist Tony Kelly to design the artwork accompanying the music.
The lyric video for "Fragile Mind", which was produced and edited by Rob Neilson of Wired Digital, can be seen below.
Jeffrey Nothing states: "This song wrote itself!
"Life takes odd twists and turns and sometimes finds dead ends.
"Creativity is a gift, yours to guide you through peace of mind and life experiences... we choose our paths. We alone should command our directions, our course to happiness and never despair, no matter what anyone else believes or demands… ever!
"'Fragile Mind' is one of many new songs I have had the pleasure of being a part of. Working with people with heart and soul! Yes, soul is incredible, to say the very least. Thomas Church, Noah Robertson, Ian D, Kahler Hatrix and others have brought huge smiles and laughter and other emotions, long dead back to the creative process. Art isn't about orders or demands, it is about doing what you love.
"We have a plethora of music and amazing minds helping to construct a living, breathing 'Monster' of a musical journey. Our fans deserve NOTHING but love too."
Nothing's distinct vocals had driven MUSHROOMHEAD's frightening and extreme performance style, garnered them an enormously devoted cult following and allowed them to sell more than one million albums worldwide.
Jeff released his debut solo album, "The New Psychodalia", in 2011 which included the single "Sin O' Cism". In 2013, Jeff starred in the movie "13th Sign". Jeff was also the singer of Cleveland-based thrash metal band HATRIX, as well as fronting the group PURGATORY in the mid-'80s.
