Make some room for N.E.R.D

Though ComplexCon is relatively new, it celebrates the culture like no other. On day one of the festival, attendees got to see the truth in that statement when they found themselves at a N.E.R.D listening party. The band’s ComplexCon performance comes days after the release of its comeback single “Lemon” and about three years after thier last performance at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival.

With their funk rock sound, N.E.R.D acquired a following of fans who love a little something extra in their music. The group-of-three — Pharrell, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley — released their debut album In Search Of… in 2001, then released new albums regularly until they went quiet in 2010. While the band’s first two albums were certified gold, their last two (Seeing Sounds in 2008, Nothing in 2010) weren’t as commercially successful.

After no new releases and little news for almost seven years, N.E.R.D debut their new album No_One Ever Really Dies in its entirety.
