Published Apr 28, 2015D.O.A. leader Joey "Shithead" Keithley is throwing his support behind Guelph punk crew the Nasties, who are now set to deliver a new LP through Sudden Death Records. The band's label debut is called Discipline, and it's expected to arrive sometime this fall.
A press release notes that while Sudden Death has long preserved parts of Western Canadian punk history — via releases from the likes of the Pointed Sticks, the Modernettes and the Real McKenzies — the Nasties are the first-ever Sudden Death signees from Ontario.
The band, formed in 2010, take influence from D.O.A., Dayglo Abortions, SNFU, Misfits and more, but are said to have twisted an assortment of punk, rock and metal textures into a sound of their own. The Nasties had cooked up a self-released, self-titled debut in 2012, with digital and CD copies currently available to purchase through the outfit's Bandcamp page.
Details behind Discipline have yet to arrive in full, but the album is expected to contain 14 cuts full of "speedy riffs, pounding drums and brazen energy." Song titles include "Plumber," "Sky Is Falling," "Empty Revenge" and "Negativity."
