New Jersey’s practitioners of infectious garage-influenced punk rock, Night Birds have linked up with Fat Wreck Chords for a forthcoming 7″ due out March 7th.
The Fat Wreck crew had this to say in recent Press Release:
Hell yes! We’ve been longtime fans of East Coast surf punks Night Birds and after heated contract negotiations and the promise of new leather jackets (for us, duh), they agreed to give us a 7-inch! Maimed for the Masses is a proper 4-song EP and will see the light of day on May 7th. The title track will be your first bloody taste of their upcoming full length, Born To Die In Suburbia, to be released by Grave Mistake Records this summer, while the B-side will contain 3 rippers exclusive to this EP. Additionally, Marissa Paternoster from the Screaming Females did the cover art. If you’re new to the game, let us introduce you to Night Birds:
Night Birds is comprised of four thoroughly modern morons from the New Jersey shore and Brooklyn, NY. After one listen it will only seem right that these guys spawn from the same state that brought you such class acts as the Misfits and Adrenalin OD. This high-octane surf-inspired punk rock band formed in the spring of 2009 following the demise of bassist Joe Keller’s band, The Ergs! While they take cues from the greats of 1980’s hardcore/punk bands like the Circle Jerks, Zero Boys, Adolescents, and Dead Kennedys, they still manage to keep it new and fresh and consistently take it to that next level. To date, the band has released three 7″ EPs as well as their 2011 debut album, The Other Side of Darkness on Grave Mistake Records, as well as playing nearly 200 shows all over the United States, Canada, and Europe. If you like Seinfeld, pizza, horror movies, or any combination of the three, Night Birds may be your new favorite band.
