THEN TWO MAIN SUPPORT TOURS TO LABEL MATE MARCO MENDOZA (THE DEAD DAISIES/WHITESNAKE/THIN LIZZY) ON THE UK VIVA LA ROCK TOUR.
Nitroville was founded by vocalist, Tola Lamont and guitarist, Kurt Michael. In 2016, Nitroville released their album ‘Cheating The Hangman’ with Scandinavia’s biggest rock & metal label, Mighty Music/SPV ~ home to artists such as The Tygers of Pan Tang, Marco Mendoza (The Dead Daisies/Whitesnake/Thin Lizzy). Nitroville quickly drew the attention of the international press which commented on the band’s rock solid musicianship, catchy song writing, powerful vocals of front woman Tola Lamont and lead guitarist, Kurt Michael’s freight train guitar riffing. The band created a modern classic/heavy rock, Southern inspired badass sound, evoking imagery of road movies of the darker kind. The songs are relentless and raw, at times menacing and paranoid, as much as poetic, big and spacious, delivered with a wall of classic Marshall amp sound.
‘Cheating The Hangman’, garnered positive coverage in Rock music’s biggest international publications from UK’s own Classic Rock and Fireworks, to Germany’s Metal Hammer and Rock It, Finland’s Inferno and Denmark’s Metalized. A prominent reviewer from Canada’s leading rock magazine, Sleaze Roxx, considered Nitroville's "Cheating the Hangman" as his favourite album of the year - 2016.
Shortly after formation, Nitroville were touring venues and festivals in the UK and continental Europe, such as Motorcycle Jamboree, a festival near Berlin, where they supported U.D.O (ACCEPT lead vocalist – Udo Dirschneider). The band also played sets in Nashville and West Texas, the latter of which has always been a location for inspiration to many of Nitroville’s songs. Nitroville have built a strong reputation for their badass rock'n'roll shows and for being a reliable act in the industry.
Nitroville have recently toured throughout Europe, mainly Germany (Hamburg), as well as across the UK and continue to gig and tour whilst working on their 3rd album, soon to be released.
