Last Friday saw the doors of 2021 being kicked open by The Dirty Nil with the release of Fuck Art (via Dine Alone Records), 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 recent anticipatory praise from Alternative Press who named it one of their “Most Anticipated Albums of 2021” calling the trio glorious fuck-up savants capable of stirring our souls, while Loudwire included album highlight “Doom Boy” in their list of the “Best Rock Songs of 2020” recommending it for those who delight in pop-y, punk-y, thrash-y songs about listening to Slayer in your mom’s Dodge Caravan.
