The Dirty Nil

The Dirty Nil announce Ontario tour dates

The Dirty Nil’s debut LP, Higher Power, out February 26, 2016, follows the release of a handful of 7” singles, mixtapes, EPs, and limited edition lathe cut records. In support of this, the band has announce a string of tour dates in their home region of Southern Ontario – listed below.

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). 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.”
