Shady Nasty’s performance will kick off at 11am AEST on April 20 on Royal Mountain Records’ Instagram. The band released their second EP in February of this year, entitled ‘Bad Posture’. They are yet to release a full-length studio album.

The band have also changed the pricing of all of their releases on Bandcamp to the princely sum of $1,000. It is unclear when this was changed, although it was not the case during Bandcamp’s 24 hour fee waiver last month. A representative for the band told NME Australia it is the result of the band signing a global record deal with Royal Mountain Records that excludes Australia. The band’s music is distributed by Inertia in Australia, and so the change is the result of the difficulties between sharing royalties between the labels.

Shady Nasty were meant to tour to the US last month, centred around an appearance at the now-cancelled South By Southwest conference. They were part of a swathe of Australian acts set to travel to Austin for the conference who were left in the lurch, including Cable Ties, Alex the Astronaut, Good Morning, Mo’Ju, Baker Boy, Evelyn Ida Morris, RVG and more.
