The Dirty Nil Higher Power on LP

Though The Dirty Nil formed in 2006, while they were still in high school, it wasn't until the release of their first 7" in 2011 that they truly began to harness the propulsive, kinetic energy of their live shows. Since then, they have channeled this energy into three further 7"s, three lathe-cut 7"s, a 10" EP, a few cassette EP's, and a handful of digital singles. Their dedication to short-form releases has helped foster their relentless creative output. Fractured pieces of rabid punk, feral garage rock, and uneasy pop hooks – assembled and reassembled.

Performing live, The Dirty Nil are an unhinged, destructive force. Kyle Fisher ferociously pummels his drums, while guitarist Luke Bentham and bassist Dave Nardi stretch their amp volumes past their breaking point. Bentham and Nardi's vocals range between melodic and frantic, violent and – less violent, with a grin on their faces. Whether live or on record, theirs is a performance based on tension and cathartic release. Three friends unified by the common desire to create something vital, meaningful, and excruciatingly loud. The Dirty Nil play rock and roll – cause they couldn't do a damn thing else if they tried.

The Dirty Nil's debut LP, Higher Power, out February 2016, is the band's first LP with Dine Alone. 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).
