Originating in 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.
The Dirty Nil recently premiered the music video for their single “No Weaknesses” via Noisey. Along with the video an exclusive interview with the band was also released which sheds light on the making of their upcoming debut LP.
David Dunham directed the music video for “No Weaknesses,” in which the guys can be seen participating in synchronized aerobic warm ups, weightlifting drums and guitar amps, and consuming protein shakes and hamburger diets, all to gain strength for the ultimate match. The video turns comically gruesome as it concludes with the band participating in a blood-splattered, black eye inducing boxing match amongst themselves, complete with the song’s thrashing guitars and pulsating drums in the background.
The Dirty Nil’s debut LP, Higher Power, will be released February 26, 2016, from the esteemed Dine Alone Records. The band views this 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.”
