Hamilton, ON-based power trio The Dirty Nil share “Blunt Force Concussion,” a slice of ‘90s power-pop and the latest cut off the forthcoming album, Fuck Art, out January 1, 2021 via Dine Alone Records and available for pre-order now.
Along with the previous releases of pop-punk gem “Done With Drugs” and the hardcore basement rock ode to young love “Doom Boy,” “Blunt Force Concussion” teases what is sure to be The Dirty Nil‘s most eclectic collection of irreverently exhilarating and fully indulgent rock n roll to date.
Watch the JUNO Award-winners perform “Blunt Force Concussion” live over at Alternative Press to see what all the buzz is about for yourself.
Y’all ever felt yourself sliding down the greasy hill of love? Down, down, down you pathetically slide until you reach the bottom. Finally, you find yourself hanging from the cliffs of sanity, above the fiery hell of romance. We present to you “Blunt Force Concussion…” We pulled out all the stops on this one: bangin’ ass drum fills, booty shakin’ bass lines, big boi geetars and a thousand dollar chorus. If you don’t like this song, fuck you and the horse you rode in on.
– Luke Bentham (frontman)
The new track follows the announcement of The Dirty Nil‘s exciting (and safe) new endeavor: The “Dancing 2 Thrash” Virtual Tour. Hosted by NOONCHORUS, the livestreaming tour will follow the amp-blowing trio as they use the magic of the internet to transplant themselves in venues across North America this month. BrooklynVegan recently called them a band who beg to be seen live, and now fans will get a chance to experience their balls-to-the-wall, high-velocity live show even during the current global pandemic. All shows start at 7PM local time, dates below. More info on the tour may be found HERE.
