SPB exclusive: Nearly Dead - Idyllic Evening stream

Nearly Dead - Idyllic Evening

Scene Point Blank is excited to share a new EP from Nearly Dead this month. Titled Idyllic Evening, the new 10” vinyl release from Learning Curve Records is a 5-song blast of the band’s tattered garage-punk that balances fuzzed out guitars, punishing rhythm and even blasts of trumpet.

The Victoria, British Columbia band formed in 2012 and will officially release Idyllic Evening on May 30.

Preorders are available now from Learning Curve.
