The Nightmare River Band (NRB) is a fierce combination of raucous Alt-Country, Americana, and good ol’ Rock N’ Roll. According to Matt Krahula, songwriter/ front man, the songs are about “love, loss, pain and drinking… not necessarily in that order”.
With the release of their debut album “Call the Cops!!” (2009), NRB hit the road and played SXSW, CMJ, & Summerfest, sharing the stage with acts such as The Legendary Shack Shakers, Sean Rowe, Tokyo Police Club, and Old Man Markley. When NRB released their sophomore album “Last Goodbye” (2012), Popmatters gave it 8 out of 10 stars, referring to it as “One of 2012’s best!”
Recently, core members Matt Krahula, Seth Faulk, and Wil Farr teamed up with Rob Cleaveland (Production) and an all-star roster of collaborators to record their third full-length album entitled “Stormville”. After several writing and arranging sessions, the songs were tracked live in a remote farmhouse in upstate New York. “Stormville” combines all of the ingredients of The Nightmare River Band’s potent blend: foot-stomping rhythms, overflowing arrangements, and infectious chorus’ that you can’t help but sing along to.
