What do you call a unique mix of metal, crushing grooves, spitfire vocals and DJ skills from the Twin Cities? You call it Nuisance!

Nuisance hails from Minneapolis/St. Paul and with a mix of metal, crushing grooves, spitfire vocals and DJ skills. They have performed with many national acts around the Midwest and are a consistent draw at home. They recently released a self-produced full length album “Kill the Silence” also have two supporting videos for the singles Priapism and The Message in rotation on YouTube. The band is currently managed by Sid Wilson of Slipknot.

All content is made by the six member band from the audio to the visual. They will be bringing their crushing devastation to Dirt Fest for their first ever appearance in Michigan on August 9th at the Birch Run Expo Center in Birch Run, MI. Vocalist Vince Ebertz and I chatted on the phone the other night to discuss their sound, their mission and excitement at playing Dirt Fest and touring Michigan for the first time.
