THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “The Dirty Nil kicked open the doors of 2021 with the release of Fuck Art, their new album that has jumpstarted the IDGAF attitude, self-aware shamelessness, and uproarious energy of full-throttle rock ’n’ roll.
The irreverent amp-blowing Juno-winning badasses have injected classic-rock heroism, pop-punk horsepower, ’80s indie scrappiness, ’90s alterna-crunch, and speed-metal adrenalin into this 11-track collection that balances its moments of astute emotional excavation with no-holds-barred joyousness. Of the album, frontman Luke Bentham says: ‘Dear world, we proudly present to you: FUCK ART. Dreams, revenge, joy and death. This is our purest glimpse of truth and beauty. Please enjoy, and as always, much love and hail rock ’n’ roll.’
The album’s release follows a string of high-voltage advanced tracks, including the aforementioned and hardcore basement ode to young love Doom Boy, the pop-punk reflection on the vices we grow out of on Done With Drugs, and the pairing of Blunt Force Concussion and One More and the Bill which take aim at the struggle to combat and avoid the limiting bullshit which clogs up our lives as we continue our journeys through adulthood. Fuck Art is the the trio’s most eclectic collection of irreverently exhilarating and fully indulgent rock ’n’ roll to date.”
