A new generation of Punk is rising, infused by what originally made Punk Rock great--raw power, combined with a socially conscious worldview. THE NERV best exemplifies this aesthetic with their driving beats and brutal, in your face instrumentation, combined with provocative lyrical content. Their songs are catchy, yet intense, giving them more impact.
THE NERV began in 2007, but have only recently morphed into their recent incarnation with original members CHRISTOPHER CAMPBELL (guitar) and vocalist NIS ANTHROPE joined by bassist IAN LARKIN and ANDY V. GALEON ( Death Angel ) on Drums. The latter two have solidified the line up and coincidentally, the band has hit its stride professionally, supporting well-known acts as diverse as D.R.I., D.O.A., AGENT ORANGE and THE TUBES and performing on big stages like the 35th Annual HAIGHT ST. FAIR, The Phoenix Theater and Slim's. 2009 saw their first LP release "THE NOW CRISIS" followed up with DECIVILIZED in 2011 and a new release set for early 2015.
