Still Here gets a global re-release!

by on Aug.18, 2015, under News, Shop

Last Thursday we celebrated the tenth anniversary of Still Here, which was originally launched in 2005 with a limited Australian release.  Back then, it wasn’t so easy to distribute music as it is today and eventually this classic CD went out of print.

That all changes today!

Marki, Ash, PC and myself (Doc) have collaborated for the first time in years to give Still Here the global release we had always intended.  Starting this week, Still Here is coming to 95+ digital stores and 15,000+ brick-and-mortar locations around the world!

Global domination is at hand!

You can already find Still Here on the following services:

Google PlayDeezerRdioShazam

Others will have the EP in the coming days and weeks, including:

iTunes and Apple Music   Amazon

We will keep you posted as we add new participating stores.

Plus for the true collector, you can pick up a copy of the actual CD (complete with original four page booklet and full cover artwork) available through CD Baby and all good music stores… as soon as stock arrives.

Shockwave (Jet Truck)

We commissioned this guy to get CDs into stores quicker, but they told us there would be a 99% chance of freight combustion.

If you’re after some quality melodic hard rock, then you can’t go past Still Here, available now!

Ten years and Still Here.

Still Here: 10 Year Anniversary!

by on Aug.13, 2015, under News

Hello, we’re back!  Did you miss us?

It’s been a while between drinks, but we’re back today because it is a very special occasion.  Not only is it International Lefthanders Day and Fidel Castro‘s birthday, but today also marks the tenth anniversary of Still Here, the landmark EP that brought the LA Music Award winning song Red Morning to the world!

Wow, has it been ten years?

Wow, has it been ten years?

Nitidus launched the highly anticipated follow up to A.S. It Is in front of a sell-out crowd at Melbourne’s famous Esplanade Hotel. Still Here features the first four-piece Nitidus line up, consisting of vocalist Patrick Clemenger, guitarist Ash Fyfe, bassist Marki Miklic and myself, drummer Kristian ‘Doctor K’ Grondman.

PC commands his audience at the Still Here launch party, ten years ago today.  He still has those leather pants.

To celebrate this auspicious occasion, we have a special surprise for you.

For a limited time only, you can now stream the whole thing.

In its entirety.

Full length tracks.

Start to finish.

Right here.


Go ahead, hit that play button and let’s journey back to 2005, a year when the Autobots prepared to launch an assault to retake their home planet Cybertron from the Decepticons.

The assault didn’t quite go as planned.  Two years later, Michael Bay made millions with his live-action remake, proving that a good thing is still a good thing.

We hope you enjoy rediscovering these songs with us… and maybe wish Castro a happy birthday too, 88 years old and still here.

Do you think he would appreciate the political message in Red Morning?

Days in The Jamming Rooms

by on Jun.07, 2012, under Radio

Here’s one from the archives: can you believe they actually gave us our own radio show back in 2005? Neither could we, but it happened. The boys from Nitidus were talkin’ trash and playin’ music from 7pm til 8:30pm every Thursday night on Syn 907 (90.7fm) with a show about Melbourne rock music for Melbourne rock music lovers. Sadly, it’s all over now, but here’s a few happy snaps from The Jamming Rooms.

When three members of Nitidus get together to form a new project, you know it has to be something special.  The original Australian line-up of Ash Fyfe, Kristian “Doc” Grondman and Marki Miklic have teamed up with our good friend Suzy Ferguson (Exile, Lustre) to create Arabela, a new venture into rock, metal and prog.

The band has bunkered themselves into Ash’s studio creating the foundations of their debut album, but they have released some demos of the work completed so far.  Check ’em out, and look for Arabela on a stage near you!

Get connected with this power trio on Facebook or Myspace to find out where they will be performing next!

Patrick, Tom and Luke are Shadow Puppet, NZ's craziest cover band!
