New Candys


New Candys formed in Venice (Italy) in 2008, consisting of Fernando Nuti (vocals, guitar, sitar), Diego Menegaldo (guitar, backing vocals), Andrea Volpato (bass, guitar, backing vocals) and Dario Lucchesi (drums, percussion).
Their influences have roots in The Velvet Underground and Syd Barrett. After a self-produced EP, in 2012 they released the album “Stars Reach The Abyss” on Foolica (repressed on Fuzz Club in 2017), a UK tour followed. In 2015 they took part in “The Reverb Conspiracy”, compilation curated by Fuzz Club/The Reverberation Appreciation Society (Levitation Austin). Later that year “New Candys As Medicine”, album mixed by John Wills (producer and drummer of Loop), has been released on both Picture In My Ear/Fuzz Club and added to The Committee To Keep Music Evil catalogue, receiving praises from Simone Marie Butler of Primal Scream and Stephen Lawrie of The Telescopes. Three EU/UK tours followed, including festivals like The Secret Garden Party 2015 and Liverpoool Psych Fest 2016.
Their third album “Bleeding Magenta” has been released October 6th 2017 on Fuzz Club, songs from it have recently been featured on KEXP’s Music That Matters Podcast and on episodes of Showtime Networks original TV series “Shameless”.
Their fourth EU/UK tour and first Australian tour followed (headlining both Sydney and Melbourne Psych Fests) with a USA-Mexico tour planned in April-May 2018. They shared the stage with The Warlocks, Dead Skeletons, Crystal Stilts, Slowdive, Savages, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and The Vaccines among others.
