Night Birds will be back in action in February.  We have the following shows coming up:

THU 2/6/14 – Brooklyn, NY @ Death By Audio, w/Tenement, Vacation, Groucho Marxists, and Nuclear Santa Claust, part of the Don Giovanni Records showcase
THU 2/13/14 – **AS KILLER WAVES** Brooklyn, NY @Grand Victory w/Shocked Minds, Foster Care
SAT 2/15/14 – Manhattan, NY @ Mercury Lounge, w/The Queers, The Scandals
SAT 2/22/14 – Warren, NJ @ Warren Legion Hall w/Worriers, Nuclear Santa Claust, Iron Chic

We’ll also be announcing some news regarding shows/tours in Canada, Europe, and West Coast very soon.

Additionally, we’ll be hitting the studio in early February to record our instrumental 7″ – hoping to have that out in the spring.



Skateboard decks are in.  We have them for sale in our webstore.  We made only 50 of these skate decks and when they are gone, they’re gone.  We’ve also restocked all shirt sizes on three of our shirt designs.

Speaking of our webstore, some folks have complained about a lack of a digital download card with the Maimed for the Masses 7″.  While you can easily purchase it on our homegrown webstore, if you purchase the physical 7″ on our bandcamp page, you get a free digital download right when you complete the purchase.

Writing is just about complete on our new instrumental EP.  Looks like it will be a five song 7″.  Hoping to announce the label for that sometime next month.

We are presently planning out our 2014.  We will have some big announcements coming soon about tours.

Thanks to everyone who supported us in 2013 – expect more racket from us next year!


A couple of quick announcements while Night Birds are in hiatus mode:

1.  We will have Night Birds skateboard decks for sale soon over in our webstore.  We’ll have another update when that goes up for sale.  We will also be restocking a lot of shirt designs and sizes that we’ve run out of in the last couple of months.

2.  We are working on a brand new all instrumental 7″.  It is going to be on a label we’ve wanted to work with for a long time.  More on that as time goes on.  Expect that to drop sometime in 2014.

3.  Since Brian is out of commission and the rest of us are working on these instrumental songs, we’re actually going to be playing a couple all-instrumental shows under the band alias “Killer Waves” to test out the new material.  The shows will be:

FRI 12/6 -Asbury Park, NJ @Asbury Lanes, Jay Insult’s birthday party show
SAT 12/21 – Asbury Park, NJ @Asbury Lanes, w/World Inferno Friendship Society

4. We will be making our triumphant return from our Bri-hiatus (back to Night Birds with vocals) for the Don Giovanni Records showcase.  The show will be:

THUR 2/6/14 – Brooklyn, NY @ 285 Kent, w/Tenement, Vacation, Groucho Marxists, and Nuclear Santa Claust


Thanks to everyone who came out and caught us on ZERO BOYS tour! We had a total blast and might go as far as saying it was our best tour to date.

We are playing some shows this month than taking the Winter off while Brian adjusts to new fatherhood and we wait for the shitty cold to blow over. We just started writing again, not totally sure for what yet, but we have a few ideas. Some shows and tours are already in the works for next year, and we are beyond excited to get back to the West Coast, Europe, and other places we haven’t been in way too long.

Thanks as always for your continued support, and an extra big thanks to Michael Douglas, Heidi & Michael Eldridge for winning the Night Birds charity test presses and helping us raise $1,110.00 towards a clinical trial to try and find less painful/dangerous ways to treat children with cancer!





OUR NEW RECORD IS OUT NOW! (Again…) After a bunch of plant delays, Grave Mistake FINALLY has copies of BORN TO DIE IN SUBURBIA back in their hands and ready to roll and you should start to see copies popping up in all your favorite to buy Rock N’ Roll records locations ASAP… If you have a distro or a store and are looking for copies, please drop him a line at gravemistakerecords@gmail.com

…For those who’ve been kind enough to offer us shows lately… My (Brian) wife and I are expecting a brand new baby girl mid November, which we’re really excited about. Night Birds will be laying low roughly 1 month beforehand (I don’t want to be far away with a very pregnant wife at home, so that means no FEST again this year, sorry) and for a bit after the baby comes (who wants to tour in the Winter anyway? Fuck the cold).

Throughout next year Night Birds plan is to do a bunch of small trips, mostly 2-6 show runs (no long tours with a youngin at home), and fests ALL over the place. We hope to hit some places we’ve been unintentionally neglecting and eager to get to / get back to… Florida, Texas, California, Vancouver, Portland, Chicago, Europe, etc. We’ve been saving up all our pennies with this in mind so we can blow it all flying around playing cool shows and not having to be gone for lengthy periods of time. We always appreciate the offers, and we always appreciate people wanting to see us anywhere. With that said, we still have some awesome stuff in store for the next couple of months and hope to see you there. Dates posted below. Thanks for the support, we’ll see you soon. XO -BRIAN

OBorn To Die In Suburbiaur brand new second full length record, “Born To Die In Suburbia” is now available for purchase.  Head on over to our webstore or our bandcamp page to purchase an LP, CD, or digital files.  We also have a new t-shirt design up, too.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we’ll be playing three record release shows this weekend in Philly, Brooklyn, and Asbury Park.

In other news, we will be hitting the road soon with The Red Dons for a few East Coast dates.  Then, in late August, we will be doing a week and a half with none other than The Zero Boys.  Could not be more stoked about that.  Head on over to the shows page to keep abreast of all of our upcoming live events.


Head on over to our webstore to order our new 7″, “Maimed for the Masses” (Fat Wreck).  The A-side is a taste of what is to come on our new upcoming full length “Born to Die in Suburbia” (Grave Mistake), while the 3 b-side tracks are exclusive to this EP.  We also have a new t-shirt design, zip-up hoodie, and metal pins for sale as well.  Orders will ship in mid-May.

Maimed for the Masses

Overseas Postage Price Increase

Hey non-US residents, we had to unfortunately raise the shipping rates on our webstore for overseas shipment. This is strictly due to the rather hefty shipping price increases from the US Postal Service that recently went into effect. The price has gone up so much we’ve actually been losing money on outside of US sales for the past few months. It’s regrettable, but we hope you guys understand.


We’ve just wrapped up recording and mixing 18 songs for TWO new NIGHT BIRDS records! May 7th will see the release of a new EP titled “MAIMED FOR THE MASSES” for none other than Fat Wreck Chords. The B side to the EP will include 3 exclusive songs, while the A side / titled track to the EP will be a single from our new full length, Born To Die In Suburbia, to be released by Grave Mistake Records (in the US) / TAKE BY SURPRISE RECORDS (in Europe) this summer. After a year of on and off writing, and over 75 hours in the studio, it feels great to have these songs on tape and we are extremely happy with how they came out. For more info on the MAIMED FOR THE MASSES ep and to check out the cover art go here: http://www.fatwreck.com/news/detail/547 … We’ll have more details on the new album and a release date shortly.

In other news, we are touring the Midwest for the first time in 2 years with GIVE from DC and TENEMENT from Wisconsin. We had this idea of putting together a short tour with three really diverse bands that we thought would go well together, kind of in the vein of an old SST tour, like Husker Du, Minutemen, Meat Puppets… GIVE & TENEMENT were the first 2 bands that came to mind, and they both agreed! So here are the dates, don’t miss out, these shows will rule… http://www.facebook.com/events/108141172689141/

Right after Midwest tour we are playing Damaged City Fest in Washington, DC. We play the Saturday with Negative Approach and a ton of great bands… more info here: http://dc-damaged-city.tumblr.com/

We’ll also be flying out to Austin at the end of May for Chaos In Tejas. Always a great time. Weekend passes are up for sale now, our show / shows will be announced soon. http://www.chaosintejas.com/

A ton more shows, tours, fest, etc in the works around the time the album is release, including our 2nd go at EUROPE in Sept. / Oct! Cannot wait to hang with our boy Michl again for 3 weeks.

That’s it for now… Stay tuned…
