Jeffrey Nothing, also known as Jeff Hatrix (born Jeffrey Lewis Hetrick, May 5, 1963 in Cleveland, Ohio)[2] is the vocalist for American alternative metal and industrial metal band Mushroomhead. His nickname comes from a scene in Blue Velvet. With a wide variety of face paint designs, Jeffrey's most known look is that of a butcher. However, he revealed a new look in the music video of "Your Soul Is Mine", showing a tan skin mask that somewhat resembles the infamous "Leatherface" from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies. His most recent incarnation is that of a mask resembling human hands. He is signed as a solo artist to Suburban Noize Records.


Jeff Hatrix is the co-founder, and lead vocalist of the Cleveland Industrial Metal band, Mushroomhead. He was also the singer of Cleveland-based thrash metal band called Hatrix, as well as fronting the band Purgatory in the mid 80s. Hatrix also plays guitar in the band Foose, under the stage name "Bob Keeshan." In June 2007, Jeffrey launched his own clothing line. The designs are currently in the works, and more are expected to be released soon. In 2011 Jeffrey began to pursue acting, and is starring in the upcoming movie "13th Sign" with fellow Mushroomhead vocalist Waylon Reavis.[3]

On New Year's Day 2011, Jeff announced that The New Psychodahlia album will be "Coming Very Soon" Via his personal Facebook account. In June 2011, Jeffrey's solo band NOTHING signed to Suburban Noize Records.[4]

When asked about the upcoming record, Jeffrey Nothing stated: "The whole album is about escaping reality. People choose a variety of ways to feel better in the face of the depression that can be caused by trying to survive in a world that can seem completely uncaring and smothering,” commented Nothing about the album. “‘The New Psychodalia’ is like a new safe hallucinogenic that makes all the ugliness in the world beautiful, with no harmful side effects. The entire album is kind of like a twisted, thought provoking view of the truths. It exposes the lies of the American dream that has really become more of a nightmare.” [5]

On August 22, 2011, Jeffrey Nothing debuted the first single from The New Psychodalia on [6]
