NONE announces end to project

July 9, 2024
Everything that begins reaches its inevitable end. After four full-length albums over the past 7 years, NONE have decided to put the project to rest. A big thank you to everyone who felt a connection to NONE's vision and supported its endevours.

A message from the band:
"We are announcing the closure of the NONE project. The reasoning is mutual but personal. We can, however, say that the fourth album "Inevitable" was always designed to be our terminal chapter, and this was an inspiring force behind many decisions on the album. Finally, we extend our deepest gratitude to Nic & Hypnotic Dirge for the unparalleled  support and trust. Now we may find rest."
