So Long 2007

by on Dec.31, 2007, under Uncategorized

Hey rockers, just droppin’ a line to say thanks for all the good times in 2007. It’s been a massive year for Nitidus and one hell of a roller coaster ride, but we made it through alive and we hope you all enjoyed the fireworks! Read on for a recap of this year’s highlights.

Nitidus: Hard Rock Artist of the Year! (by Kristian Grondman)

Winning the LA Music Award for Hard Rock Artist of the Year was like a sign from the gods of rock beckoning us to Hollywood. The band went into overdrive writing, rehearsing, selling wine and paying off credit cards ready for a blow out LA tour mid year. While our minds were focused on making the LA tour happen this year, we still kept the gig calendar filled up with dates around Victoria sharing stages with Taxi Ride, Justin Murphy and others.

Nitidus @ The Whisky a Go Go, Hollywood, CA (by Kristian Grondman)

The 21 Alibis promotional tour of west coast USA stands out as one of the greatest moments in the turbulent history of Nitidus. All of us crammed into an RV for a 3 week long endurance test that pushed our sanity to the brink… but still got us around California and Nevada to rock some world famous venues: The Whiskey A-Go-Go, The Roxy, The Key Club, The Gig Hollywood and many more. The tour was a big success and Nitidus definitely left an impression and kicked some major doors wide open. Leaving the States afer the tour was bitter sweet, as we left behind some great times, some great shows and some new fans. Hope to see you all again real soon!

Nitidus hang out with The Cat in The Hat (by Kristian Grondman)

Back in Australia, there was no slowing down for Nitidus. In the last few months we signed our fates over to the good hands at Fa’Sho Management, recorded some hot new tracks that you can now hear on Myspace and caused all shades of chaos on the red carpet of this year’s ARIA Awards. Plus we rocked some massive gigs with some of Australia’s finest, including Diesel and Airbourne.

With more big shows coming and a whole lot more than you can imagine going on behind the scenes, 2008 is shaping up to be another wild ride on the Nitidus pony.

So that’s it for another year. Thanks for coming to the show, hope you all had a great Xmas and we’ll see you in the new year for more mayhem.

Historic night for Immersion

by on Oct.26, 2007, under Uncategorized

Just thought we’d let you all know about an important event for a band that has been close to the Nitidus family for many years. Adam’s former band mates in Immersion will be saying farewell to their leading lady or rock: Sharne. This Friday 26th of October will be Sharne’s final performance with Immersion, but it will also be the first for new singer Sarah Q!

If you’d like to come and check out the show, then get over to Sectionate at 60 King St (next door to Bar 20 we’re told) in Melbourne, Victoria. We’ll see you at the bar!

Walking the red carpet

by on Oct.24, 2007, under Uncategorized

It is now official: Nitidus will not only be attending this year’s ARIA award ceremony, but will also make an appearance on the red carpet. I guess they must have heard about our LA Music Award. This is a tremendous honour and we can’t wait to inject a bit of Nitidus hard rock style to the whole event.

We will be rocking up to the red carpet at 4:26pm, making our grand entrance in an official ARIA stretch Chrysler 300cc. As our manager put it, “a real gangsta rock limo!”. Keep an eye out on Sunday 28th October, you may catch a glimpse of us on Channel Ten’s telecast.

Stay tuned for more ARIA mayhem.
