Worldwide acclaimed as one of the best rock’n’roll emerging band, New Candys are always looking forward to be on the road. Tour in Australia in February ’18 and a recent one in US in April/May ’18 that brought the band to record a live studio session for the legendary KEXP!
“Mixing brooding psychedelia with post-punk stylings, the record captures the full intensity of their live show with devastating results.”
Drowned In Sound, 2017
Hailing from Venice, Italy, New Candys formed in 2008. Described as dark modern rock’n’roll, the band combines noisy, brooding sounds with distinct melodies and has developed a notably dynamic and symbiotic connection between their music and meticulously crafted visual imagery. The band consists of Fernando Nuti, Andrea Volpato, Alessandro Boschiero and Dario Lucchesi.
New Candys’ third and latest album “Bleeding Magenta” was released in 2017 by Fuzz Club and repressed in the United States by Little Cloud Records, followed by its European promotional tour and a performance at SpaceFest in Gda?sk. In 2018 they toured Australia playing 14 shows, headlining both Sydney and Melbourne Psych Fest and performing at the Adelaide Fringe. Next the band went on a US-Mexico tour of 18 shows plus a KEXP live session in Seattle. The American tour started with two shows in New York and proceeded along the west coast, including performances at Pappy & Harriet’s in Joshua Tree and the Highland Park Bowl in Los Angeles. Later in the summer they performed at Fuzz Club Eindhoven, headlined by The Black Angels, and supported The Brian Jonestown Massacre for both of their Italian shows. Released in 2012, their first studio album ”Stars Reach The Abyss”, mastered by Jon Astley, brought the band on tour in England and Italy. The song “Meltdown Corp.” was included in the annual compilation “The Reverb Conspiracy”, co-released by the highly revered independent label Fuzz Club and The Reverberation Appreciation Society (Levitation Austin). In 2015 their second studio album “As Medicine”, mixed by John Wills of Loop, was released through Picture In My Ear and Fuzz Club and distributed by The Committee To Keep Music Evil. In the next two years the band toured Europe three times, also performing at the Secret Garden Party and Liverpool Psych Fest. They supported bands such as Slowdive, The Vaccines, Savages, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and The Warlocks. Some of their songs are featured on episodes of Showtime Networks original TV series “Shameless”.
