Alright. What is the deal here? Did we not pay these people off enough? What’s with all these 4.5 outta 5 and 9.5 outta 10?! We want the other half a star, goddammit! But seriously, we are thrilled folks are digging the new Night Birds album, Mutiny at Muscle Beach, as much as we do. Night Birds kick off a string of record release shows today in Chicago, supporting Dillinger Four no less. And if you happen spot these dudes in an airport this weekend, buy them a drink! They’ll be touring off and on the rest of the year, including FEST 14! Head over to Spotify or Bandcamp to listen to the album then order your copy today! Check out what vocalist Brain Gorsegner had to say about their latest effort below:
Punk rock is still alive and well in 2015, and we’re excited to be a part of it. We hope you get some decent mileage out of this little platter and you feel it was worth your hard earned dough. We started off wondering if we could make a third album at all, but I believe the end result to be our best output yet and I’m really proud of the time and effort we put into it. Thanks for checking it out and we hope ya dig it. We are going to be all over the map over the course of the next 12 months so come out to a show and say hi!
So a blog for a Pacific Northwest
football soccer team is raving about a New Jersey-based hardcore surf-punk band and their new record, not ironically calling them “the greatest punk band that you have possibly never heard of.” We’ve either entered into some sort of twilight zone or Night Birds and Mutiny at Muscle Beach really are just that fucking great. So we’re super stoked to finally be able to share the new album with the entire universe, courtesy of Impose! The album is a full on assault of the senses, an experience that demands to be followed by the visceral experience of a Night Birds live show. Lucky for all of you, Night Birds head out with Dillinger Four this weekend for the first round of record release shows and will be properly supporting the record for the rest of 2015 and all throughout 2016. Vocalist Brian Gorsegner explains, “We’re basically just gonna try to destroy ourselves in the next 12 months,” he concludes. “This is what we do for fun and to keep sane and mentally balanced. It’s the only thing we really know how to do. If somehow punk rock finds a way to be 1994 again and make us money, that’s cool, but if we expected that stuff to happen, we’d stop playing in bands 10 years ago. It’s a nice balance of trying to keep myself sane doing what I’ve done since I was 14 and not letting my baby starve to death.” If you haven’t checked out their latest video of “Mutiny at Muscle Beach” do yourself a favor and watch their blood run dry.

The tour kicks off in Chicago and routes down into the bogs of Gainesville, FL for FEST 14! Their crime spree continues until November 8th, so don’t miss it! Read what our favorite bespectacled criminal, Intruder Blue, had to say about what’s coming down the pike:
“We’re super pumped to tour with The Copyrights again, especially since we’re going to the Fest! We’re doing a set of b-sides & rarities at prefest, so we’ll be sprinkling a few of those songs into the set the whole tour. We’ll be laying low for most of the rest of the year to work on new stuff, so come out!”
