East Coast surf punks Night Birds have premiered their new song “Maimed for the Masses” today on Brooklyn Vegan! The song is the title track from their new EP, due out May 7th and available for pre-order now! The title track will be your first ferocious taste of their upcoming full length, Born to Die in Suburbia, to be released by Grave Mistake Records this summer, while the B-side contains 3 rippers exclusive to this 7”. Brian Gorsegner, vocalist of Night Birds elaborates: “’Maimed for the Masses’ is about giving something you love your all, even if it means bloodying and destroying yourself along the way, because it is all you know. Whether it is playing rock & roll, skateboarding or wrestling, it’s that “play to destroy” mentality that is truly inspiring. This song is more specifically an ode to wrestler Mick Foley. These are some of my favorite lyrics Joe has ever written and I am glad to finally have it on wax.” And if you know these dudes, you know they keep it old school with no colored vinyl. You collectors are gonna have to dork out on a limited run of heavyweight black wax instead. So get ready to tear your heart out and catch them live on their upcoming tour!
