Nishad played the Blooms Festival in Thrissur in Kerala in June 2009 and returned once again in June 2011 with a different lineup. In 2013 Nishad began playing guitar as a member of punk band FALL RISK. Nishad appeared on their 2013 single, "The Prestige." He would also contribute to their 2014 release, "The Circle - EP," produced by Give Up The Ghost and Bloodhorse drummer Alex Garcia-Rivera. He left the band shortly after the promotion cycle for The Circle - EP.
Fall Risk would move forward with their following release, "Sleeplessness - EP," as a 2 piece. In March 2015, Nishad released his debut solo album, "Indivisible Devils." In addition to performing guitars and all other instruments and programming, Nishad also handled all producer, mixing, and mastering duties for the record. The vocal duties on all other songs, and special feature guitar solos and drum parts, were delegated to several close friends of Nishad who are artists from Boston-local bands in order to make Indivisible Devils an all-stars feature album. Some of the featured guest artists included his old bandmates in Fall Risk.
