Ottawa punk duo Big Dick released their excellent self titled debut LP earlier this year via Dirt Cult Records. It was an album that brought to mind other Canadian bands like Death From Above 1979, METZ, and Japandroids, but was still entirely its own. We've now got the video for one of its tracks, "Colours," making its premiere in this post. It combines visuals of boxing/wrestling matches with clips of the band playing in various, often snowy locations. Check it out below. You can also download that track for free at bandcamp.
Big Dick have some Canadian dates scheduled, and they're working on doing a Northeast US tour this August, but dates for that are still TBA. All currently announced dates are listed, along with the new video and a stream of their LP, below...

It's hard to talk about Ottawa, Ontario bass/drum duo Big Dick (named after the song by post-hardcore wizards NoMeansNo) without referencing another Canadian bass/drum duo, Death From Above 1979. They share DFA1979's relentless energy, stabbing rhythms, and distorted bass riffage, but they do it punkier and noisier, not unlike fellow Canucks METZ (who they've shared bills with). And they do it with a Japandroids-style 2-piece-that-sounds-like-a-5-piece level of power. If you're fans of any of the aforementioned bands or any type of melodically abrasive post-punk and noise rock, do yourself a favor and give Big Dick a listen. Their self titled debut full length comes out next week (2/19) via Dirt Cult Records and it's one of the most impressive debuts I've heard this year so far.
You can stream the entire album ahead of its release over at Scene Point Blank, and grab one of its tracks, "Schoolyard Violence," for free at the top of this post. You can also listen to that track below, along with streams of two other album cuts, "Wolves" and "Colours," and a live session video of another, "Medic." The album art and tracklist are below too.
Big Dick have an upcoming record release show with Neon Windbreaker and Boyhood in their hometown this Saturday (2/16), but
no not many other tour dates to report of at the moment. Update: They also play Toronto on Friday (2/15) (thanks Eric).
