The Sneaky Nixons Set to Release Schadenfreude

Liverpool’s newest rock-n-roll four-piece, The Sneaky Nixons are set to release a new single on Ocean Waves Records on the 21st of April 2017.

‘Schadenfreude’, the follow up to the recent ‘Returning Home a Failure’, will be digitally available via all the major outlets and is the second single to be lifted from the band’s debut album ‘The Barbie Syndrome’ which has just been released.

Recorded last year at the Motor Museum studio with producer Carlo Variola and engineer James Mellor, the album features eleven incendiary new tracks. High- energy indie punk at its very best, the band also infuse hints of early 90s Britpop and Americana to their sound and the end result is all the better for it.

They’ve since shaped a reputation locally for their volatile, arrogant behaviour and riotous live performances where literally anything can happen and usually does. This has unsurprisingly seen them split opinions, but each show sees them play to an increasing and enthusiastic fan base and they can also count the likes of Louder Than War, Get Into This and BBC Introducing’s Dave Monks among their many admirers. At last, badly behaved rock stars! SEEN can hardly wait…

The terrible effects of war on mental health echo down the centuries in Esmond Productions’ gender-bending version, with women playing all the roles. Post-traumatic stress disorder wreaks …
