The Dirty Nil are back. The amp-blowing, Juno Award-winning trio who for years have embraced, torn down, and then reinvented the quintessential “rock n roll star” archetype have announced the title of their hotly anticipated new album, Fuck Art (out via Dine Alone Records), out later this year. The Dirty Nil’s new record is an unabashed concoction of classic-rock heroism, pop-punk horsepower, ‘80s indie scrappiness, ‘90s alterna-crunch, and speed-metal adrenalin.
“Doom Boy is one of my favourite songs we’ve ever made. It’s an ode to chivalry and thrash itself, and yes, it’s my Mom’s Dodge Caravan. Crank the dial and enjoy, friends,”said Bentham.
Of the video, Bentham said that it “was without parallel the most dangerous video we’ve ever made. When we were told that all we had to do was return the ‘shell’ of the van to get half our money back, all hell broke loose. Between the roman candles, vintage mini bikes and minivan mayhem, I was quite surprised that we only had a few injuries by the end of the night. Do NOT attempt any of the antics performed in the “Doom Boy” video, you’ve been warned.”
Seeing a three piece thrash out tunes with the power and depth that some four or five piece bands struggle with always impresses the shit out of me, The Dirty Nil definitely require some respect. Adding some metal in influence into the mix is a plus that gives them a step up in status too.
