The Nightmare River Band (NRB) is a fierce combination of raucous Alt-Country, Americana and good ol’ Rock N’ Roll. According to Matt Krahula, songwriter and front man, the songs are about “love, loss, pain and drinking… not necessarily in that order”. NRB is a group of passionate musicians who have been touring relentlessly, delivering intense energy and showmanship to partygoers across the country. Crowds of revelers are always quick to join the party and sing along to humble, yet captivating lyrics.
After their debut album “Call the Cops!! (2009)” NRB hit the road and played SXSW, CMJ, Summerfest, and the Old Port Festival and shared the stage with acts such as The Legendary Shack Shakers, Sean Rowe, Evan Watson, Matt Simons, Tokyo Police Club, and Old Man Markley. The crowd-pleaser “Mary”, was nominated for an Independent Music Award for Best Alt-Folk Song of the Year in 2010. When NRB released their sophomore album “Last Goodbye (2012)”, Popmatters gave it 8 out of 10 stars, referring to it as “One of 2012’s best!”
Recently, core members Matt Krahula, Seth Faulk (Drums, Vocals), and Wil Farr (Guitar, Vocals) teamed up with Rob Cleaveland (Production) and an all-star roster of collaborators to record their third full length release entitled “Stormville”. The new album, slated for release in September 2016, represents a departure from the typical studio recording environment. After several writing and arranging sessions, the new songs were recorded live in a remote farmhouse in upstate New York. “Stormville” combines all of the ingredients of The Nightmare River Band’s potent blend: foot-stomping rhythms, overflowing arrangements, and infectious chorus’ that you can’t help but sing along to.
