The Dirty Nil, the amp-blowing, JUNO Award-winning trio have embraced, torn down, and then reinvented the quintessential rock ‘n’ roll star archetype for years. Now the band has announced the title of their hotly anticipated new album, Fuck Art, set for release later this year via Dine Alone Records. The Dirty Nil’s third LP is an unabashed concoction of classic-rock heroism, pop-punk horsepower, ’80s indie scrappiness, ’90s alterna-crunch, and speed-metal adrenaline. The Dirty Nil have also revealed “Doom Boy,” the new single from Fuck Art. You can stream “Doom Boy” via your preferred platform now.
Meshing thrashy, metal-like riffs with pop-punk melodies, and a radio-friendly chorus, “Doom Boy” is a hardcore basement punk love song about listening to Slayer in the back of a minivan that’s not afraid to sound pretty in a stadium. Frontman Luke Bentham so enthusiastically recorded the song that he ripped a hole in his pants in the studio, “I still have the pants to prove it!” Bentham exclaims.
The Dirty Nil have also unveiled an accompanying music video for “Doom Boy,” featuring the trio jamming in a van before proceeding to destroy it.
“Without parallel, “Doom Boy” is the most dangerous video we’ve ever made. When we were told that all we had to do was return the shell of the van to get half our money back, all hell broke loose. Between the Roman candles, vintage mini bikes, and minivan mayhem, I was quite surprised that we only had a few injuries by the end of the night. Do NOT attempt any of the antics performed in the “Doom Boy” video. You’ve been warned.” explains Bentham about the new video.
Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
