Hailing from Dundas, Ontario, The Dirty Nil consists of Luke Bentham (Guitar/vocals), Kyle Fisher (Drums), and David Nardi (Bass/vocals). The band operate as a cross section of the most key and essential parts of Rock & Roll. Windmill heroics and smoke guitar theatrics sit side by side with uncompromising noise, feral energy, and deranged enthusiasm.
The band have just revealed a brand new video for ‘Wrestle Yü To Hüsker Dü‘, filmed on VHS video-camera’s (all of which have now passed away) at some of their local hometown shows. The video was shot and directed by Ben Rispin and Lee Skinner.
“12 broken video cameras + illegal smoke bombs in confined spaces = The Dirty Nil live experience, captured for you in glorious VHS format.”
Luke Bentham, Vocals/Guitar.
To coincide with this release, the band are thrilled to announce their return to the UK & Europe, for their first headline tour, to support the recent release of their debut LP, ‘Higher Power’. Shortly after the huge success of their debut UK performance in January at their sold out show in the Black Heart, London. Joining them to support the majority of the tour will be London based punks, WACO.
