Hailing from Venice, Italy, New Candys formed in 2008. Described as dark modern rock’n’roll, the band combines noisy, brooding sounds with distinct melodies and has developed a notably dynamic and symbiotic connection between their music and meticulously crafted visual imagery. The band consists of Fernando Nuti, Andrea Volpato, Alessandro Boschiero and Dario Lucchesi.

Released in 2012, their first studio album ”Stars Reach The Abyss”, mastered by Jon Astley, brought the band on tour in England and Italy. The song "Meltdown Corp." was included in the annual compilation “The Reverb Conspiracy”, co-released by the highly revered independent label Fuzz Club and The Reverberation Appreciation Society (Levitation Austin). In 2015 their second studio album “As Medicine”, mixed by John Wills of Loop, was released through Picture In My Ear and Fuzz Club and distributed by The Committee To Keep Music Evil. In the next two years the band toured Europe three times, also performing at the Secret Garden Party and Liverpool Psych Fest. They supported bands such as Slowdive, The Vaccines, Savages, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and The Warlocks.

New Candys’ third and latest album “Bleeding Magenta” was released in 2017 by Fuzz Club and repressed in the United States by Little Cloud Records, followed by its European promotional tour and a performance at SpaceFest in Gdańsk. In 2018 they toured Australia playing 14 shows, headlining both Sydney and Melbourne Psych Fest and performing at the Adelaide Fringe. Next the band went on a US-Mexico tour of 18 shows plus a KEXP live session in Seattle. The American tour started with two shows in New York and proceeded along the west coast, including performances at Pappy & Harriet's in Joshua Tree and the Highland Park Bowl in Los Angeles. Later in the summer they performed at Fuzz Club Eindhoven, headlined by The Black Angels, and supported The Brian Jonestown Massacre for both of their Italian shows. Some of their songs are featured on episodes of Showtime Networks original TV series "Shameless".

I New Candys si sono formati a Venezia nel 2008. Caratterizzati da un sound moderno e dark, il loro rock'n'roll combina melodie distinte e contrastanti. Hanno sviluppato una notevole connessione dinamica e simbiotica tra la loro musica e gli artwork e video che realizzano personalmente. La band è composta da Fernando Nuti, Andrea Volpato, Alessandro Boschiero e Dario Lucchesi.

Dopo un EP autoprodotto, nel 2012 esce il primo album “Stars Reach The Abyss” (Foolica), seguito da un tour in UK. Un brano tratto da esso viene incluso nella compilation annuale “The Reverb Conspiracy” dell'etichetta inglese Fuzz Club ed americana The Reverberation Appreciation Society (Levitation Austin). Nel 2015 esce il secondo album “As Medicine” per l’etichetta americana Picture In My Ear e nuovamente Fuzz Club. Mixato da John Wills dei Loop, riceve apprezzamenti da Simone Marie Butler dei Primal Scream, Stephen Lawrie dei The Telescopes e dalla Orange Amplification. Seguono tre tour europei incluso il supporto di band come Slowdive, The Vaccines, Savages, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Warlocks e la partecipazione a festival come Secret Garden Party e Liverpool Psych Fest.

Nel 2017 esce il terzo album "Bleeding Magenta" (Fuzz Club / Little Cloud Records) ed il quarto tour europeo include la partecipazione allo SpaceFest a Danzica. Il riconoscimento internazionale della band si consolida nel 2018, prima con un tour australiano di 14 date dove suonano da headliner al Sydney e al Melbourne Psych Fest e partecipano all'Adelaide Fringe, poi con un tour degli Stati Uniti e Messico di 18 date ed una live session alla radio KEXP di Seattle. Il tour americano, iniziato con due concerti a New York, è proseguito lungo la west coast ed ha incluso venue storiche come il Pappy And Harriet's a Joshua Tree e l'Highland Park Bowl di Los Angeles. In estate si sono esibiti al Fuzz Club Eindhoven assieme a The Black Angels e molti altri ed hanno suonato in apertura ai The Brian Jonestown Massacre in entrambe le loro date italiane. Alcuni loro brani sono stati inclusi in episodi della serie televisiva americana "Shameless".
