Nasty Habits, a lyrically mind blowing, face blistering potpourri of sound. A sort of Mr. Toads wild ride; from beginning to end. What led up to the formation of this hard rock power trio is the interesting part. Native Californian, Jon Nelson formerly had played lead guitar and backing vocals in the notorious Venice punk-metal band, Suicidal Tendencies, and after a lengthy tour and songwriting collaboration period, Jon had played for a short time with local friend, Michael Balzary (Flea) in The Red hot Chili Peppers while recording and touring in his own band The Brood. Later some ideas came to mind worth pursuing, using musical influences like Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, Beatles, and Johnny Cash, ideas of victory over inner doubt and life changing experiences were enough to round up a couple of fellow musicians to create some passionate music and a new project. Jon summoned bassist, and old time friend, Stephan "Peabody" Klein (Manhole, The Wretched) and Soon after they recruited Justin Pace (Agent X) on drums. Combined, these three musicians have a world of experiences behind them and many great stories to tell. "Some of the best song writing I have heard in recent years". Previously, these guy's have shared the stage with a roster of major headlining acts and have been a great direct support band recently while promoting their latest album. With a new energy and a new look, a standard independent release campaign, their label is convinced these guy's have a promising year ahead. Nasty Habits- Quote, "Everybody's got one". The debut LP "Material" (with benefits), is being released on TMG indie label, and is due for a October 8th, 2013 release.
