“Zombie Eyed” by The Dirty Nil

The Dirty Nil’s forthcoming album, Higher Power, is due out February 26. The album, is the band’s first LP for 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 by John Goodmanson (Sleater Kinney, Death Cab for Cutie, Unwound), and mastered by Troy 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.
