"Like Janis Joplin fronting an NWOBHM version Heart with music written by Lynyrd Skynyrd!" - Mass Movement Magazine - UK

"If a rusting and oil dripping Mustang could play guitar, this is the music it would make." (Shout4Music.com)
July 2010: Nitroville was formed by Tola Lamont and Kurt Michael Boeck after both had a jam in a shoddy rehearsal room in Shoreditch, London.
After six months of writing songs together, both decided to record the songs including a bassist and a drummer in a studio nearby. Both the band and producer decided to release the material as Nitroville's debut album, “Can't Stop What's Comin'". Despite a simple and no fuss production, the album was well received with various publications, including the larger rock magazines like Fireworks and Classic Rock. The band also received airplay with various radio stations across the globe, in particular, the USA. Lynyrd Skynyrd producer Bob Marlette took notice of Nitroville and offered to re-mix a song for the band – 'Let It Roll'.
From 2012: Nitroville's focus was on touring and gigs. The band played alongside some of rock history's greatest, securing shows with well-known venues and festivals and also a headlining slot at the prestigious Cambridge Rock Festival. Nitroville got noticed abroad with some continental European radio stations and not before long, the first international gigs were in the pipeline.
From 2013: Nitroville started writing new material for a second album alongside international touring and playing festivals abroad.
From 2014: Besides continuing writing new material, the band continue to perform and with playing larger venues, Nitroville supported U.D.O (Udo Dirkschneider of Accept) at a festival near Berlin in July 2014.
Going forward: Nitroville has secured a number of bookings for festivals and more international touring together with their second album release in the pipeline.
