Published Jul 11, 2018The Dirty Nil recently teased their sophomore album Master Volume with lead single "Bathed in Light," and now the band have revealed more details about the upcoming LP and shared another new track.
The complete tracklisting for Master Volume has been unveiled, and it features songs that range from "That's What Heaven Feels Like" (an ode to living fast, dying young and blasting through the windshield of a car — so basically a "greased-up, sucker-punched 'There Is a Light That Never Goes Out'") to "Please, Please Me" (a punk rock antithesis to the Beatles song of the same name).
See the full list of song titles down below.
The cover art for Master Volume has also been revealed, and it's pictured above. It was designed by Christopher Blackwell and draws equally from horror and pop art influences. In a statement, he describes it as "kind of an ode to trash and metal bands that we all grew up on."
The Dirty Nil have also delivered another sonic sampling of the upcoming record, unleashing the bitingly infectious "Pain of Infinity." Give it a listen now.
Finally, the group will embark on a North American tour this fall. See the full list of upcoming shows below, as well.
As previously reported, Master Volume is due out September 14 via Dine Alone. It marks the full-length follow-up to 2016's Higher Power.
