Record Label: Ipecac
The unlikely union of TV on the Radio singer Tunde Adebimpe, Faith No More frontman Mike Patton and rapper Adam "Doseone" Drucker – who call themselves Nevermen – will finally release their self-titled debut! The trio's first single is the quirky, cinematic avant-pop single "Tough Towns." Five minutes of eerie synthesizers and understated hip-hop beats, the song boils down to a single sentence that the singers all recite about persevering out of a small town: "It's where everything you never want keeps coming from."
'Tough Towns' is dedicated to anyone remotely young, feeling inexplicably inspired in the 'nowhere' they are from," says Drucker, who was born in Napa, Idaho, but grew up bouncing around between New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia. "May you soon escape with style into elsewhere." --Rolling Stone
