Combining sideways rock and psychedelic blues, Nick Carver & the Mean Street Butchers unleashed the beast with their sophomore album ‘ANIMALS’ in July 2022. With outlandish singer-guitarist Nick Carver leading the charge, the Gippsland outfit showcased the album at festivals such as Arockalypse Now, Inward Goods, Live at the Park and NYE on the Hill. In July of 2023, the band returned with new single, I NEED TO FEEL, a dank snappy number with lo fi sabbath esque riffs and sexy interplay between the vocals. In October, MSB came back again again with new track, SMOKE ALONE. The band binged on mellow NIRVANA and BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB, while bringing an even crustier twang to the bands new found heavier edge against a well known backdrop of alt country and blues.
