ABOUT THE BAND:
The Null Rays are the remnants of the hard rock band known as “Nocturnal Sun,” who performed as in RI from 1997-2009. The Null Rays re-formed in 2020 to release 2 studio albums of material…the latest being dropped on 09/16/2021. The “Null Rays” project is the brainchild of Jason Carpentier, who wrote most of the material with many different collaborators over the course of a decade, performing “live” in the Providence area in the early part of the century. The latest single, “Everyone’s Dead” (from the forthcoming
album of the same name) is a poppy, alt-rock tune with some country feel…a song that is more fun and positive than it appears in name!
Jason, combined with longtime bassist, Ron Dumont, formerly of Gordon Gano (Violent Femmes)’s solo project and Dana Blake on drums to produce the new album with various friends and former bandmates from yesteryear!

How can I support Orca? Is there a membership?
Just visit the site and you can follow us on social media. Thanks!
This site is garbage as are the reviews on here. I’ve read the copy and have to say that any goon can throw up a bad website with bad takes. This is the bummer of the internet. I miss the days where you had to qualify with some taste in order to talk about something with some expertise. If anyone reads this please don’t take anything these people say seriously.
Sorry you don’t agree with our reviews. But that is the beauty of reviews or criticism, it is all just an opinion.
