Nothing and Nobody is an American rock band formed in 2014. The band consists of bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus, collaborator/producer Chris Holmes and drummer Sarah Jones.

History[edit]

Formation (2013–14)[edit]

Hoppus and Holmes met in 2006, and Holmes became an engineer on many of Hoppus' future projects, including +44 and his post-reformation work with Blink-182. Holmes was also behind the boards for various other groups, such as Audioslave, AFI and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.[1] In 2009, the duo produced a remix of The Jackson 5's "ABC", which later saw release on the compilation The Remix Suite.[2]

The trio first began writing and recording together in 2013, during a period in which Blink-182 bandmate Tom DeLonge was allegedly uninterested in working with the band.[3] He first revealed the project to Kerrang! in August 2013, remarking, "We probably have seven or eight songs in various stages of completion."[4] "I still haven't chosen a name [for the project] yet; we still have to figure that out. It's like guitar mixed with electronics…. at this point." Hoppus will share lead vocals with Holmes on the tracks.[4]

The band released their first song on April 25, 2014, a remix of Nova Rockafeller's "1990s".[3]

The band announced on August 8, 2014 on Twitter that Sarah Jones was joining the band.[5]
