Bio

Nice Guys are a 5-Piece Noise/Heavy Hardcore band from Sydney, NSW and have been described by one promoter as “very pissed-off art” They just released their debut e.p. ‘Shoot out the Lights’ on up-and-coming independent label beard of bees and are embarking on a full east coast tour in support. They are looking to further extend their profile interstate after a couple of successful short trips to Victoria in 2010. Nice Guys feature current and former members of such hardworking Sydney bands as Hira Hira, Yeah Bears, Call the Medic, Call the Nurse!!, Epics and Handsome. They came together as a group of friends with a desire to play heavy music the way they wanted and see where it would take them. Up until this point Nice Guys have supported various international touring bands such as La Dispute, Heavy Heavy Low Low, Dangers & Graf Orlock (USA), Milvains & Un Quarto Morto (Italy) as well as Australian underground legends Conation. They have built up a reputation for putting on a very intense live show, with lyrics ranging from social isolation to fully-fledged Armageddon screamed to a soundtrack of noisy, complexly-layered thrash. It is in the live setting their sound is fully realised. ‘Shoot out the Lights’ is available now on iTunes and Nice Guys will be playing it for you soon.

that whole crazy unpredictability you have going on is the real selling point of this track. it works for the most part but, unfortunately, there are some points where it doesn't. you just need to aim for making those wild changes still fit into the track smoothly. i really enjoyed this though. great sound!
