Nitidus Get Airbourne

by on Dec.14, 2007, under Press, Shows

Melbournians! Grab yourself a copy of Beat Magazine and turn to page 60 to check out the write up for Saturday’s gig, plus a sexy photo on page 83. From the article:

Local Hard rockers Nitidus are combining their forces with 2007 ARIA nominated Airbourne this Saturday December 15 at 21st Century in Frankston for what is guaranteed to be a sweaty, loud and totally unadulterated expression of rock’n’roll.

Pick up a copy today from your favourite pub, skate shop, wherever (relax, they’re free) and head down to the gig this Saturday. It’s the last Nitidus rock show for 2007 and we intend to celebrate!

Get your tickets at shop.nitidus.com.au before the gig.

Brand new song, now playing!

by on Dec.10, 2007, under Web Stuff

Head over to Myspace to hear The Taste, the first of three brand new Nitidus studio recordings produced by Adrian Hannan (Taxi Ride, Lee Harding, The Androids). This is the first new release in over 2 years!

The Taste is like nothing you’ve heard from Nitidus before, highlighting the band’s exciting new direction since the 2005 EP “Still Here”. It’s laced with infectious hooks and a driving beat, straight from the gritty underground rock scene of Melbourne.

Crank your speakers to 11 and get onto Myspace to hear The Taste!

Updates from the studio

by on Dec.03, 2007, under Studio

Hey guys, the new tracks are coming along great. All that time on the road perfecting the songs and our performance has paid off in a big way!  This recording is seriously leaps and bounds over anything we’ve ever done before. Can’t wait to let you all listen in on what we’ve been cookin’. Bass, guitar and vocals are now all complete and it’s now down to Adrian to weave his magic on the mix. Check out some shots from the last few sessions.

We’re heading back to the studio again tonight to hopefully complete the final mix. Stay tuned.

So… why are Nitidus in the studio now?

by on Nov.23, 2007, under Studio

Why the sudden rush to record new tracks? Well those who have been to the shows this year will know we’ve got a lot of new stuff just waiting to be recorded, so it’s good to finally take these fan favourites from the live show and turn them into something to shake your home stereo (or iPod).

But this recording is not just for the joy of making music. It has been a poorly kept secret that Nitidus have been attracting some significant label interest in the last few months since even before our 21 Alibis tour of the USA. These new tracks will be forwarded to some very powerful folks in the music biz, potentially sealing a record deal… but more on this tantalising development later.

Never lose faith!

Nitidus are back in the studio!

by on Nov.21, 2007, under Studio

Last Sunday, the band commenced recording three new tracks with long-time producer Adrian Hannan (Taxi Ride, Lee Harding, The Androids). Doctor K completed drum tracking at a secret location on Sunday 19th November, with Marki scheduled to commence bass guitar tracking on Thursday 22nd November at The Songstore.

When we say Nitidus means honest, hard working rock band, you know we ain’t kiddin’ around. Over the last six months we have toured the United States of America, signed on new management, attended the ARIAs, rocked out with Diesel and more. Now as we prepare for the biggest rock show of 2007 with Airbourne next month… we decided it’s a good time to hit the studio. Thanks to pre-production recordings made earlier in the year, we’re able jump right in to produce some great tracks.

These tracks may form the basis of a new EP in early 2008, but no plans have been made as yet. In the meantime, check out some shots from last Sunday’s studio session:

Nitidus are going to the ARIAs!

by on Oct.13, 2007, under News

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.

Nitidus arrive in Los Angeles

by on Jun.25, 2007, under News, Shows, Video

Hey rockers, Nitidus are officially on the road in LA. Marki and Adam made the journey across the Pacific Ocean a few days before PC and myself (Doctor K). The band finally reunited in West Hollywood, as you can see in our first video on the tour.

Before our first gig date at the Key Club, the band will be taking a few days to get in tune with the local culture by checking out Universal Studios and cruising down Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevards. Keep an eye on Flickr for photo highlights. Stay tuned for more updates as Nitidus get ready to rock LA!
