The Dirty Nil have released the video for "Friends in the Sky". The clip is a homage to The Who's (in)famous debut appearance on American television. In that appearance, the band verbally (and literally) tore apart The Smothers Brothers. Guitarist and singer Luke Bentham said; "Can silver pants from China give you cancer? I don't know. What I can tell you however, is that speaker cones will catch fire if you subject them to the business end of a smoke grenade."
New album Higher Power follows the release of a handful of 7" singles, mixtapes, EPs, and limited edition lathe cut records. The album was produced by the band, with Shehzaad Jiwani and Adam Bentley, mixed by John Goodmanson (Sleater Kinney, Death Cab for Cutie, Unwound), and mastered by Troy Glessner (Anberlin, Neck Deep).
