by Dine Alone

In case you missed it earlier this month, Ross Miller, bassist of The Dirty Nil and one half of Sideman, shared a new hardcore EP under the name Blue. The five-song release, titled Positive Attitude, was recorded this past August by Nick Giammarco (of Welland, Ontario's Canyon Carvers) and Justis Krar (a sometimes-Single Mothers member and the other half of SIDEMAN). Miller plays every instrument on the lightning-quick record. You can stream it now on Bandcamp. The Nil are, of course, supporting their recent Dine Alone Records release of Master Volume .
