Legendary Greek post-punks NEXUS have returned after a 17-year hiatus with a brand new album.

Cited as Greece's first industrial band, Nexus are the brainchild of musician, songwriter, label boss, broadcaster and filmmaker, a veteran of the country's post-punk and Goth scenes since the early 80s.

Pougounas came to prominence as founder of Athens band FLOWERS OF ROMANCE, one of the most influential bands on the Greek underground scene, whose final album Brilliant Mistakes in 1996 was produced by Wayne Hussey. He formed Nexus in 2000, followed by NEW ZERO GOD in 2006. He currently hosts the internationally syndicated Blackout Radio Show.

For the new album Ninouki, alongside Greek musicians, Yiannis Drenoyiannis, Michalis Galeos, Louis Kontoulis and Michalis Semertzoglou, Pougounas worked with UK guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite (The Mission, Spear Of Destiny, Peter Murphy) and renowned producer John Fryer (Nine Inch Nails, This Mortal Coil, Love And Rockets).

Ninouki is available now via Bandcamp
