Fresh off a North American tour and multiple European tours, Ontario three-piece The Dirty Nil have just released a bloody new video for the aptly titled track Zombie Eyed. The video is lifted from the band’s debut LP ‘Higher Power ‘(Dine Alone) which was released earlier this year to critical acclaim. Vocalist/Guitarist Luke Bentham said of the video, “When some young kids from the west coast pitched us this gratuitously violent video, they essentially told us they were gonna make it with or without our blessing. We all laughed and agreed to see where the chips landed. Hope you like it as much as we do, the kids are alright.” Watch the video below via YouTube.
Made up of Bentham (guitar/vocals), Kyle Fisher (drums), and Dave Nardi (bass/vocals), the band operates as a cross section of the most key and essential parts of rock and roll.
Following US tours with FLAG and The So So Glos, the band will be taking off on a nationwide US tour with Billy Talent as well as playing a slot at Riot Fest. The band’s unhinged live performance is one based on tension and cathartic release. Windmill heroics and smoke guitar theatrics sit side by side with uncompromising noise, feral energy, and deranged enthusiasm. A full list of current dates are below with more to come soon!
