New York/New Jersey-based punk band Night Birds have announced a slew of upcoming East Coast tour dates this spring, including shows with legendary punk and hardcore bands Cocksparrer, Cro-Mags, Screeching Weasel, The Queers, and Pissed Jeans (tour dates below). The dates, which kick off this weekend in Long Island with World-Inferno Friendship Society, are only a hint of what is to come for the band; they have just announced 4 shows in Hawaii as part of this summer’s No Suck Fest, and a summer West Coast US and Canada tour is in the works.
Night Birds are also scheduled to appear live on the Chris Gethard Show on February 29th. Their appearance can be viewed on New York’s premiere public access station, the Manhattan Neighborhood Network at 11pm EST or streamed live.
The band, who garnered critical acclaim for their 2011 release The Other Side of Darkness on Grave Mistake Records had quite the busy past two years that included on a full European tour and appearances at Chaos in Tejas, Best Friends Day, Insubordination Fest and The Fest 9 among other things. The accolades continued to pour in for The Other Side of Darkness with the album appearing on many year end best-of lists including Magnet Magazine, Punknews, Big Takeover, and The 1st Five.
Night Birds are Brian Gorsegner (vocals), Joe Keller (bass), PJ Russo (guitar) and Ryan McHale (drums).
