Night Birds to release new LP Born to Die in Suburbia on July 9 and Tour US


If you were putting the Summer of 2013 into Seinfeldian terms, you may want to consider referring to it as The Summer of Night Birds. Nearly two years after the release of their cult-classic debut LP The Other Side of Darkness, Grave Mistake Records (US) and Taken By Surprise Records (Europe) will deliver Night Birds‘ second full-length, Born to Die in Suburbia on July 9th. On it, Night Birds have outdone themselves once again – honing their style on Born to Die in Suburbia, delivering 14 tracks of scintillating hardcore punk – refashioning the dark overtones and surfy inflections of early ’80s Cali punk for a modern world on the very verge of a nervous breakdown (full tracklisting below).

Check out the first single, the title track “Maimed for the Masses” off the Fat Wreck Chords 7″ below:

Recorded over the better part of the Winter of 2013 with Mitch Rackin at Seaside Lounge (Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, The Obits) in Brooklyn, NY, Night Birds have created a record that is distinctly more “Night Birds” than ever. Featuring guest vocals from Eric Davidson (New Bomb Turks, The Livids) and Miranda Taylor (Hunchback, Black Wine), Born to Die in Suburbia is rife with the band’s signature tales of dysfunction, despair and lamentations of a culture in rapid decline.

Never ones to hold still, this summer sees Night Birds migrating South to Austin’s Chaos in Tejas in June before heading back to the East Coast for a slew of dates this summer including tours with Red Dons and Zero Boys (all tour dates below).
