nothing,nowhere. detailed the collaboration explaining, “Travis has been a huge influence on me my whole life. He is the reason I became interested in tattoos at a young age and was also one of the main reasons I decided to start learning how to play instruments. Working with him was some of the most fun I’ve had making music. it was just an organic process, it reminded me of hanging at a friend’s house when I was younger and just creating to create.”
Barker remarked, “I love making music with Joe. He lives in a universe between genres like myself and does it so well. It’s like hanging out with an old friend that skates, listens to everything I do, and we just happen to be making music at the same time. Joe’s a triple threat, this EP showcases that”

nothing,nowhere.’s acclaimed sophomore album, RUINER, is highlighted by the album’s title track and “rejecter,” which Pigeons & Planes declared, “perfectly exemplifies why nothing,nowhere.’s music is so exciting… he’s crafted a world of sound that’s both fresh and recognizable.” The FADER remarked, “The new record is a stimulating blend of singing, hip-hop, and live instrumentation, all fused together with emo and alternative stylings.” RUINER follows nothing,nowhere.’s 2017 breakout debut album REAPER which was released to critical acclaim, highlighted by the tracks “Hope’s Up (Ft. Dashboard Confessional)” and “Skully.” The album received remarkable critical attention upon its DCD2/Equal Vision release with the New York Times’ Jon Caramanica placing it at #1 on his list of 2017’s best. REAPER “synthesizes the second-wave emo of the early to mid-2000s with the rattling hip-hop low end of the last few years,” he wrote. “(REAPER) is one of the most promising pop albums of the year…” Rolling Stone declared “REAPER finds him tonally evoking the glory years of 2000s emo-punk without necessarily replicating it.”
