The 12″ vinyl release of New Jersey’s Night Birds Fresh Kills Vol. 1 singles and demo collection (originally released on CD format in 2011) is out now, courtesy of Richmond’s Grave Mistake Records. Fresh Kills Vol. 1 consists of the band’s first three now out-of-print 7″ singles and 2009 demo. The band will also play two record release shows – the first on August 23rd in Philadelphia at Golden Tea House and the second on August 25th at the Acheron in Brooklyn, with more East Coast dates to follow through the fall (all tour dates below). Limited edition copies of the record will be available at both shows through the band featuring a silk-screened obi strip.
Formed in the spring of 2009, Night Birds released a series of singles and EPs on respected labels Art of the Underground, No Way, Dirtnap and Grave Mistake before releasing their critically acclaimed first full length, The Other Side of Darkness on Grave Mistake in 2011. The band has remained active since their inception, playing regularly throughout the Northeast, at festivals throughout the country, and touring Europe, all the while gaining a reputation for their intense energetic live performances and signature surfy, snotty punk sound.
