Last Thursday we celebrated the tenth anniversary of Still Here, which was originally launched in 2005 with a limited Australian release. Back then, it wasn’t so easy to distribute music as it is today and eventually this classic CD went out of print.
That all changes today!
Marki, Ash, PC and myself (Doc) have collaborated for the first time in years to give Still Here the global release we had always intended. Starting this week, Still Here is coming to 95+ digital stores and 15,000+ brick-and-mortar locations around the world!
You can already find Still Here on the following services:
Others will have the EP in the coming days and weeks, including:
We will keep you posted as we add new participating stores.
Plus for the true collector, you can pick up a copy of the actual CD (complete with original four page booklet and full cover artwork) available through CD Baby and all good music stores… as soon as stock arrives.
If you’re after some quality melodic hard rock, then you can’t go past Still Here, available now!
Hello, we’re back! Did you miss us?
It’s been a while between drinks, but we’re back today because it is a very special occasion. Not only is it International Lefthanders Day and Fidel Castro‘s birthday, but today also marks the tenth anniversary of Still Here, the landmark EP that brought the LA Music Award winning song Red Morning to the world!
Nitidus launched the highly anticipated follow up to A.S. It Is in front of a sell-out crowd at Melbourne’s famous Esplanade Hotel. Still Here features the first four-piece Nitidus line up, consisting of vocalist Patrick Clemenger, guitarist Ash Fyfe, bassist Marki Miklic and myself, drummer Kristian ‘Doctor K’ Grondman.
To celebrate this auspicious occasion, we have a special surprise for you.
For a limited time only, you can now stream the whole thing.
In its entirety.
Full length tracks.
Start to finish.
Go ahead, hit that play button and let’s journey back to 2005, a year when the Autobots prepared to launch an assault to retake their home planet Cybertron from the Decepticons.
We hope you enjoy rediscovering these songs with us… and maybe wish Castro a happy birthday too, 88 years old and still here.
It has been a long time coming, but today we’re officially announcing that Nitidus is on indefinite hiatus and will no longer be performing in the foreseeable future. To paraphrase Billy Gould at the break up of Faith No More in 1998,
The decision among the members is mutual, and there will be no pointing of fingers, no naming of names, other than stating, for the record, that ‘PC started it’. 🙂
Early in 2008, lead singer Patrick “PC” Clemenger made the hard decision to move back to New Zealand to start a family, while Nitidus continued to perform around Melbourne as a three-piece with Marki, Adam and myself (Doc). The four of us reunited once more in February 2009 for the A.R.E.A. 9 festival in New Zealand, where we had an absolute blast. We had great creative chemistry, despite not having played together in almost a year. When the three of us inevitably returned to Australia, we no longer wanted to continue as Nitidus without founding member PC on the mic. As a three piece, we feel that the band has changed significantly, and so it was agreed to hang up the Nitidus name.
We’d like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years, we couldn’t have come this far without you. We hope you will continue to support us in our next endeavours, but more on that soon.
PC, Marki, Adam and Doc remain on good terms and continue to be active musicians. You haven’t seen the last of us, so make sure you’re subscribed to this blog for news in the near future.
So long… for now.
We would like to extend a big warm welcome to the littlest member of the Nitidus family: Holly Clemenger, born on Thursday 23rd May at 3:30pm (New Zealand time) to loving parents Patrick and Karen. Mum and bub are home and doing well… and rockstar Patrick “PC” Clemenger is now well versed in the art of nappy changing and bathing.
We wish the new Clemenger family all the best in this exciting stage of their lives. If you would like to extend your congratulations and well wishes, you can email PC at [email protected], or drop a comment below.
I’d like to take a moment to introduce you to the newest member of Nitidus: our manager Andre Williams. Take a bow, Dre!
Dre heads up Fa’ Sho’ Management in Sydney, who also look after the lovely and talented Sophia. The man is in high demand, being well connected within the Australian music industry as well as back in his home town Los Angeles. With a smile that can charm the panties off a supermodel (it’s been known to happen), Dre has already begun making big things happen in the Nitidus world.
Dre and Nitidus have been collaborating unofficially for several months now ever since coming into contact through the wonders of Myspace. Now that ink has been put to paper, I dare say we’re all in for some exciting times ahead.
The ARIAs are going to have Nitidus to deal with this year! We’re taking time out from our heavy song writing schedule to fly up to Sydney and attend the Australian Record Industry Association’s night of nights.
Thanks to our esteemed colleagues in the music industry, we’ll be strutting down the red carpet with other Australian artists you may know, such as Missy Higgins, The Veronicas, Powderfinger, silverchair and more. During the award ceremony, we’ll be sharing a table with some of the most powerful people in the music business… then killing countless brain cells at the official and unofficial after parties.
It’s a dirty job but someone’s gotta do it. Naturally we’ll be taking as many photos as we can get away with, so if there’s any particular celebrity you’d like to see sharing a Kodak moment with Nitidus, let us know by posting a comment below (we’ll try and snap as many as we can).
Don’t forget to tune in to the ARIAs, which is televised on 28th October (check your local TV guide)… and then check back here for photos and other goodies. Don’t expect anything posted the next day though, as the band will be in hangover recovery mode.
