Dave Dunham directed clip for The Dirty Nil’s catchy single, has the band participating in synchronized aerobic warm ups, weightlifting drums and guitar amps, and consuming protein shake and hamburger diets, all to gain strength for the ultimate match. The band recalls of the filming process, “Making the video was 14 hours of hell that only Dave Dunham could drag us through with a smile on our faces.”
The Dirty Nil’s debut LP, Higher Power, out February 26, 2016 is the band’s first LP with Dine Alone Records. Higher Power follows the release of a handful of 7” singles, mixtapes, EPs, and limited edition lathe cut records. The album was produced by the band, with Shehzaad Jiwani and Adam Bentley, mixed by John Goodmanson (Sleater Kinney, Death Cab for Cutie, Unwound).
The Dirty Nil explaining Higher Power,
“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.”
