The Dirty Nil
This Dundas, Ontario (a part of the city of Hamilton) act formed in 2006 while they were still in high school. In 2011 with their 7" release this metal/punk hybrid began to get noticed. Three 7" and a 10" EP and some cassette EPs followed before they got public notice with Little Metal Baby Fist EP (2012), Smite EP (2014), Higher Power (2016) and Minimum R&B (2017).
Of note was their singles Cinnamon?/?Guided By Vices (2014) and No Weaknesses - limited edition 7" (2015) test pressing featuring the line-up of Luke Bentham (Guitar/Vocals), Dave Nardi (Bass/Vocals) and Kyle Fisher (Drums).
They went relatively unknown until this point except for one major incident... their surprise Juno Award nod in 2017!!!
