That’s right, woodchuck chuckers. It’s Groundhog Day! Make sure to spend this special day with someone you love. Now, here’s some Night Birds news…
Starting this Saturday, Feb. 4th, we will officially be back in action. Come welcome PJ to the band and witness the birth of a new era for us at the Acheron in Brooklyn with Kim Phuc and Nuclear Spring. We have been getting back into show playing mode since the day after Mike’s last show and we’re really anxious to start playing again. We are still semi-hibernating in February and March because it’s fucking cold out and who the hell wants to tour in the winter? With that said, we still have 9 shows over the next 2 months and we’ll be playing a few songs on the Chris Gethard show Feb. 29th. If you’re unfamiliar with the show check out some back episodes here (www.thechrisgethardshow.com). A few tours are in the works, and one is totally booked, more info on that next month though. It also looks like we’ll be playing a bunch of fests this year, all over the place… Some fairly predictable, some not so much, but that too will have to wait.
In other news we have a new song coming out on a comp called “The Thing That Ate Larry Livermore” on Adeline records along with the Mean Jeans, Dear Landlord, the Copyrights, the Dopamines, and 11 more. It’s currently being mastered and is due out early Spring. The first US and European pressings of “The Other Side of Darkness” are now sold out. Roughly 1,600 records gone since September 2012. That seems really crazy to me, thanks so much to everyone who picked up a copy. Both Grave Mistake and Taken By Surprise just got their 2nd presses in.
As always if you want to buy a record, a tee shirt, or some other junk we have our webstore here.
