Artist Biography by

Nevermen are a trio consisting of Anticon MC Doseone, Faith No More's Mike Patton, and TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe. Like other Doseone projects such as 13 & God and Subtle, Nevermen freely blend experimental hip-hop, indie rock, and electronic textures, with tightly wound vocal harmonies and cryptic, abstract lyrics. The group openly rejects the idea of having a frontman, and all three members contribute equally, meshing into a single entity. The project initiated around 2008, after Doseone had appeared on the 2006 album by Patton's Peeping Tom project, and Adebimpe guested on a 2007 album by Subtle. The trio announced that they were working on music together in 2008, and in 2009 Doseone announced that they had named themselves the Nevermen and had signed to Lex Records, also home to Subtle. All three members kept busy with their other commitments, most notably Faith No More's reunion, so fans had to wait until 2015 before hearing the first taste of the group's music. Singles "Tough Towns" and "Mr. Mistake" finally appeared in 2015, with the latter sporting a remix by Boards of Canada. The self-titled album by Nevermen (who had removed "the" from their name) finally appeared on Lex (in the U.K.) and Patton's Ipecac label (in the U.S.) in early 2016.
