Published Aug 17, 2020Hamilton rockers the Dirty Nil have announced plans for a new album called Fuck Art. Before its release later this year on Dine Alone Records, they've shared a new track from the effort titled "Doom Boy" alongside its very own music video.
The Mitch Barnes & Victor Malang-directed video sees the band decimating a perfectly good minivan. They sing: "Let me be your Doom Boy / We could hold hands / Listen to Slayer in the back of my Dodge Caravan," whilst ripping out the innards of the van, doing donuts in a field and lighting off fireworks.
"'Doom Boy' is one of my favourite songs we've ever made. It's an ode to chivalry and thrash itself, and yes, it's my Mom's Dodge Caravan," said frontman Luke Bentham, adding that the raucous new video "was without parallel the most dangerous video we've ever made."
He added: "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."
While few details about the forthcoming album have been released, the Dirty Nil promise it will be a mix of "classic-rock heroism, pop-punk horsepower, '80s indie scrappiness, '90s alterna-crunch, and speed-metal adrenaline."
The Dirty Nil's last full-length release was 2018's Master Volume. Earlier this year, they shared a new video for "Done with Drugs," a track that may or may not be attached to the new album.
