Roll Credits, our new 8 song mini-album, is officially out. You can pick up the vinyl/CD/digital files online from our webstore, our bandcamp, or from Fat. We’ll be playing a bunch of shows in support so do come on out.
Sorry for the wait, we are back, let’s get down to it…
1. This Summer marks Night Birds 10 YEAR anniversary so we’re going all out…
2. We have a new mini-album called “Roll Credits” coming out Sept. 21st on Fat Wreck Chords.
3. You can now listen to our first new song in nearly 3 years, and collectively one of our favorites we’ve ever done. It’s called “My Dad is the BTK” and it can be found here: https://www.decibelmagazine.com/…/track-premiere-night-bir…/
4. Pre-orders are available NOW over at FATWRECK.COM. There are LPs as well as 500 limited 7″ box set versions of the album to properly display the incredible artwork that we commissioned nine of our insanely talented friends to create. Endless thanks to Chris Shary, Nathan Gattis, Perry Shall, Marissa Paternoster, Michael Saunders, Paul D’Elia, Alex Hagen, Sean Pryor, and Keith Marlowe.
5. We’ve reunited with our old friend, Mike Hunchback, who played guitar in Night Birds from ’09-’12. He produced and played on this album (alongside PJ, of course), and will be playing live with us for the first time in 6 years! This will be the first time ever we are playing as a 5 piece lineup and we think it sounds better and more powerful than ever before…
6. SHOWS! We have 17 of them, all over the U.S. (we’re eager to get back to see friends in other countries all over the place, and that will happen in the new year, stay tuned!). Check the dates, buy some tickets, come hang out.
Thanks for caring, it means the world to us. Here’s to 10 more years!
1. Sorry if we can’t make it to your town before our show hiatus (Joe, our bassist, and his wife are having twins! Thus us being out of tour commission for a while). It’s nothing personal, and we will be back as soon as we can…
2. OK, NY, we lied. That last show we said would be our last in NY for a while was clearly not, but you can’t say no when the Spits come to town…
3. We have a really good excuse as to why we can’t cram in a few more shows before our break , but we’ll talk more about that soon…

Some big news from Night Birds camp: Starting in November we will be taking a break from playing live shows to focus on families and that domesticated suburbia life. We’re very happy to announce that our own Joe & Maya have some babies dropping later this year. Mazal Tov! It’s difficult to believe we’re approaching the 8-year (HOLY SHIT!) mark of countless weekends and damn near every vacation day from our jobs out on the road, all over the map. It’s time to mow the lawn and take the kids to Disneyland, but we’ll be back soon with some tricks up our sleeves.
With that said, the break doesn’t start for a few months, so we’ll be cramming in a few shows before hibernation, in addition to the Jersey City, Boston, and Philly shows we have planned for later in July (you can buy tickets to those here: http://www.fatwreck.com/tour/single_artist/108). Let us know where you’d like us to play, and we’ll try and make it happen. Until then…
