August 14th Grand Rapids Lima, Ohio @ Jim's Leather Shop
Hopefully a Nice View CD collecting all the EPs and compilation tracks out on Sound Pollution Records (hopefully) in time for this tour.
NICE VIEW are one of the best Power violence bands from Japan, though their music now has grown to encompass influences way beyond that. We tried to get them here for the first SUPER SABADO GIGANTE in 2003 and are stoked they will finally make it over. They released their first full length CD, after existing for YEARS, a year or two back on Japan's SONZAI RECORDS. If you're in the midwest don't miss the shows!!
