Churning out their brand of punk rock ’n’ roll for nearly half a decade, Guelph, Ontario’s The Nasties have quickly overtaken the world of steely, aggressive, turbocharged music.Signing to legendary punk staple DOA’s Sudden Death Records, the band presents their inaugural full-length album Discipline. These 14 tunes range from the ’77 attitude of the title track through pelvic rocker “Plumber,” hyperactive “Sky Is Falling,” undulating “Empty Revenge” and steely, menacing “Negativity.” Discipline reaches as far back as the genre’s formative years, pushing the worlds of punk, rock ’n’ roll and metal into a lifelong mandate and uniting disparate foundations of originality and familiarity. With inspiration from DOA, Dayglo Abortions, SNFU, Misfits, Hellacopters, Dead Kennedys, New Bomb Turks, Razor and the inimitable Motörhead, The Nasties sprout from humble beginnings to create their own Royal City sound. Featuring members of underground Canadian punk mainstays including Forgotten Rebels, Maximum RNR, Maggot Fodder, Tirekickers and more, Discipline showcases a deep-rooted adoration for grinding guitar riffs, politically fired lyrics and beastly, thunderous drums, all set to pulsating rhythms, unrivaled dynamism and guttural attack.It’s working. Baring teeth smeared with blood and instruments caked with liquor, sweat and enthusiasm, The Nasties’ virulent energy has resulted in over 250 performances with genre heroes including Gwar, C.J. Ramone, Glen Matlock, Meatmen, Hanson Brothers, Vibrators, Forgotten Rebels, DOA, SNFU, Dayglo Abortions and more. A sold-out debut EP, revered international showcases—not to mention universal recognition as purveyors of the party atmosphere—consistently yields ravenously boisterous crowd appreciation and involvement.
