Nitocris began when Andi, Jess, Sara and Kira met at Hunters Hill high school in Sydney, at the age of 14. They were 4 rock music loving, skater outcasts who didnt seem to fit into the usual girly role model of their peers. They decided to start a band.
After 10 years, approximately 1500 shows, 2 albums and 5 EP's Nitocris made the very difficult decision to have an indefinite and possibly permanent break to pursue their own personal projects. The girls have been playing around the country since they were all an average age of 15 and have achieved amazing success within Australia.
2001 alone saw them play the Big Day Out Tour nationally; complete their own 60 date national headlining tour; receive an ARIA Nomination for Best Independent Release; and release the final single, Spouse Killer, from their self-titled album.
