The Hamilton-based band formed in 2006, as a duo featuring teenage high school pals Luke Bentham (guitar/vocals) and Kyle Fisher (drums). Quickly, the guys developed a sound that mixed the catchy muscle of ‘70s rock with the furious energy of punk. Kyle explains, “We all grew up liking classic rock music and playing classic rock songs and punk songs all the time.” After a few years of basement jam sessions, they added friend and fan David Nardi on bass. The band has since introduced long-time friend Ross Miller (bass/vocals) to the fold, taking over from Nardi.
The Dirty Nil released a string of singles and EPs, and their fanbase spread from their hometown across the continent. They earned an admirer in NOFX’s Fat Mike, who asked the band to cut a single for his celebrated punk label Fat Wreck Chords (2014’s “Cinnamon” b/w “Guided by Vices”). They’ve hung out with underground hero Ian McKaye at the iconic Dischord House in Virginia, opened for FLAG, and took part in Warped Tour.
Since the 2016 release of Higher Power, the band’s momentum has only increased with global tours alongside Alexisonfire, Billy Talent and Monster Truck and recognition from the likes of Kerrang! in the UK, who nominated the band for ‘Best International Newcomer’, Visions Magazine in Germany who named Higher Power their #2 album of 2106, and at home in Canada where the band recently won a JUNO Award for ‘Breakthrough Group of the Year.’
