JUNO Award-winning punk trio The Dirty Nil have 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 full-length 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 dropped “Doom Boy,” the new single from Fuck Art, which you can stream below.
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!”
“Without parallel, “Doom Boy” is the most dangerous video we’ve ever made,” said Luke Bentham. “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.”
