THE NILS (Montreal power-pop-punk)
Montreal’s lost rock band is back.
After their critically acclaimed 1987 self titled album, their increasing fanbase included musicians in the genre naming them as a direct influence: Goo Goo Dolls, Superchunk, Jawbox, Meat Puppets, Down By Law, Bob Mould (Sugar, Hüsker Dü).
"The band, led by brothers Carlos (bass/vocals) and primary songwriter Alex Soria (vocals/guitar), went on hiatus. Drug abuse rumours swirled. Alex started new projects, including a reformed Nils with original guitarist Mark Donato before committing suicide in 2004… Fast forward to 2015 - Carlos and Donato picked up the pieces and finally delivered the second album fans waited & waited for." - CARLA GILLIS Now Magazine.
A no-brainer evening for fans of power-pop as done by spirited musicians who helped pioneer the genre.
