If your a lover of high energy bands like; ACDC, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Black Sabbath and Alice In Chains then you’ll love the explosive sounds of Nervcast. This Canadian rock and roll band based out of Toronto is composed of guitarist and vocals, Everett Mason, guitarist-Kevin Daliri, bassist-Galen Weir and drummer-Matthew Humphreys. First hitting the rock scene, October 2017 with their debut EP, “Locked and Loaded”. After a year and a half of writing and performing various live venues including; Toronto Heavy Metal boat cruise. Additionally, they have opened for the Killer Dwarfs and Warrior Soul. Nervcast draws creativity and inspiration from artists including but not limited to; Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica and Judas Priest.
Back at it again the band has recently released its newest debut, “Two Weeks Notice”.
Starting off with a strong headbanging instrumental sound, these men have really captured the essence of rock and roll. If I were to ever quit my job this is definitely the song I want blaring behind me. That statement is sure to put a visual in your head, and it's exactly what you're imagining! It's raw, edgy and fun all in one. Making this song even more memorable the music video incorporates a famous scene from “Office Space” where Nervcast reenacts the famous baseball bat destroying the printer scene. I love how powerful, badass and energic this band is.
Listen to "Two Weeks Notice" below!
Welcome to BuzzMusic, thanks for chatting with us. Can you tell us what inspired the four of you to form, Nervcast?
The four of us met jamming in a previous band called Laugh At The Fakes. At the time Galen and I were looking for a new guitar player and drummer so we put an ad up in search of some new members. Kevin and Matt came to try out and it just clicked. We immediately realized we needed a better band name and since Kevin was adding a lot to the writing process, we decided to form a new band with the same members called Nervcast.
How does “Two Weeks Notice” related to your previous works? Any particular message you are trying to send with it?
With it being our second release, I think we had a lot more familiarity with each other in the making of this EP. We recorded it in the same studio as before, so it was very comfortable. In terms of the message of "Two Weeks Notice," I think it's a statement a lot of people can relate to. Everybody wants to feel like they are valued and getting what they deserve, not just at work but everywhere in life. There's something empowering about just saying fuck it, I quit. A lot of people each shit for way too long.
How do you see the sound of Nervcast evolving? Any collaborative works in the future?
I think our songwriting has evolved and that our songs keep getting better. Kevin, Galen, and I all write so that in itself makes the music more diverse than if one guy is doing all the writing. We are always coming up with new ideas and we have enough material for our next release, so we're excited to see where this goes. We feel like we are just scratching the surface of what we can come up with.
Are you open to fusing other genres into your tracks? If so, which ones and why?
Not really to be honest. I've never been a big fan of genres that fuse. At this point, I don't think it would be genuine. We just wanna rock!
Thank you for this badass, high energy EP. We’re excited to hear more and fans would love to know where they can go to see your next live performance?
December 7th at The Rockpile. We are opening for Sven Gali and Slyde! All of our tour dates should be up on our bandsintown and Spotify page
