The Dirty Nil Debut “Zombie Eyed” via Brooklyn Vegan

Debut LP “Higher Power” Out February 26, 2016 via Dine Alone Records

The Dirty Nil premiered their new single “Zombie Eyed” today via Brooklyn Vegan. The second single to come from the trio’s upcoming full length debut, Higher Power, due out February 26, 2016 via Dine Alone Records, finds the band blurring genres and embracing rock and roll.

Speaking about the song, Brooklyn Vegan shared, “It’s a punk-rooted alt-rock song that sounds straight out of the ’90s, which is something we’ve heard a lot of lately, but The Dirty Nil sound destined to cut through all the noise. It’s got thick, clear production and singerLuke Bentham spends most of the song at the top of his lungs. They’ve got all the ambitions of an arena band but their punk intensity is intact, which is the same approach that got songs like this on the radio 20 years ago.

The Dirty Nil’s debut LP, Higher Power, out February 26, 2016 is the band’s first LP with Dine Alone Records. Higher Power follows the release of a handful of 7” singles, mixtapes, EPs, and limited edition lathe cut records. Explaining Higher Power, the band said they view the record as “Finally the chance to assemble a dynamic and unified set of songs, this is us right here and now. A chance to stretch our legs and explore new pastures of distortion. Here we are, raggedly in the red. Higher Power than your band.” The album was produced by the band, with Shehzaad Jiwani and Adam Bentley, mixed byJohn Goodmanson (Sleater Kinney, Death Cab for Cutie, Unwound), and mastered byTroy Glessner (Anberlin, Neck Deep).

Hailing from Dundas Ontario, The Dirty Nil consists of Luke Bentham (Guitar/vocals), Kyle Fisher (Drums), and Dave Nardi (Bass/vocals). The band works as a cross section of the most essential parts of rock and roll. Windmill heroics and smoke guitar theatrics sit side by side with uncompromising noise, feral energy, and deranged enthusiasm.
