NIGHTMARE AIR is a rock trio from Los Angeles, California, fronted by the dynastic duo Dave Dupuis (guitar, vocals) and Swaan Miller (bass, vocals).
The bands debut studio album will be released March 19, 2013 on Saint Marie Records as well as Vinyl Junkie Recordings in Japan.
Nightmare Air\'s Dupuis, a veteran of L.A. shoegazers Film School (Beggars Banquet) and Miller, whose stark 2006 acoustic album on Important Records melted hearts and faces everywhere, meticulously layer boy-girl harmonies, psych noise loops, fuzz-ripped bass, and glam soaked walls of guitars. With the addition of Detroit-raised heavy hitter Jimmy Lucido on drums, Nightmare Air puts on a live show that\'s charged with energy, excitement, and decibels, marking them as:
“POSSIBLY LA’s LOUDEST BAND” - Surfing on Steam
In their many combined years of touring, these road veterans have supported heavyweights from Smashing Pumpkins to The Jesus and Mary Chain, Swervedriver to TV on the Radio. In 2012 Nightmare Air embarked on an ambitious 4 month tour across the US, UK and Europe supporting the lead track for the debut album. Headlining clubs and playing festivals throughout 2012, Nightmare Air have shared stages with Sonic Youth legend Lee Ranaldo, The Wedding Present, The Duke Spirit, The Buzzcocks, Fishbone, and The Cult at their SXSW 2012 showcase.
