“While the riffs and fretwork of lead guitarist Kurt Michael Boeck would be impressive
enough on their own, it`s lead singer and discovery of the year Tola Lamont that
really sets you on fire. Hearing a voice like this really does restore your faith in the
music business”. Rocktopia

In the summer of 2010, Tola Lamont and Kurt Michael Boeck met up for a jam in Shoreditch, east London. On the first session two songs were born – the southern rock grinder, “Cuts to the Bone” and the stomping “Got what it takes”. Both songs were later included on Nitroville’s debut album, “Can’t stop what’s comin’” which was released in 2011.
Despite a low budget recording and minimalist production, the numerous international reviews for “Can’t Stop What’s Comin’” were remarkably positive. Leading music magazines such as British publications Classic Rock and Fireworks commented on the skilled musicianship, powerful vocals and solid song-writing. Leading heavy rock stations worldwide and the US in particular, began playing Nitroville tunes regularly and also invited the band for interviews - whilst New York and Montreal based rock radio shows voted Nitroville's “Can't Stop What's Comin'” the “album of the year”.
International touring started in 2012, playing established venues and festivals across Germany and the UK, such as a headliner at the prestigious Cambridge Rock festival, alongside Mick Ralph (Free), Deep Purple's Don Airey and many other great artists from rock history.
2013 saw the band continuing to play internationally – including acoustic sets in Nashville and West Texas, the latter of which has always been a location for inspiration to many of Nitroville’s songs.
2014 saw Nitroville with U.D.O (ACCEPT lead vocalist – Udo Dirkschneider) as one of three main acts on the big stage in a festival near Berlin with a 10,000+ audience.
Continuing to play the occasional gig in well established venues on London's Denmark St, together with various gigs across the UK and the uber cool -White Trash Fast Food in Berlin, the band's focus for the rest of 2014 was on writing and refining material for their new release.
By the end of 2015, Nitroville had completed their 2nd album ''Cheating The Hangman'', which is due out 23 March 2016 on Target Group/Mighty Music.
After the release of Nitroville’s second album it’s gigging time again, make sure you CATCH’EM LOUD!
