Dundas, Ontario punk act The Dirty Nil has announced plans for their debut full length, but first they will release a new 7″ this November.  The disc will be titled No Weaknesses b/w Provisional and will be released by Dine Alone Music.  Bandmate Dave Nardi comments on the b-side, which features a Fugazi cover:

“I was completely terrified to release this cover. Fugazi hold such a colossal place in my mind. They’re the paragon of punk virtue, and they had the kind of autonomy and creative freedom that every band should aspire to. They’re like a ghost that haunts my every music-related thought.

Additionally, the new album is currently being mixed by John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Death Cab For Cutie, Unwound) for an early 2016 release on Dine Alone. Upcoming tour dates are below.
