The Other Side of Darkness – Pre-orders

So after 6 months in the making we are excited to finally be taking pre orders for our debut album, “the other side of darkness” on Richmond VA’s GRAVE MISTAKE RECORDS. Vinyl copies come with a download code, and we have CD copies available as well. We also made up a batch of tee shirts with the album art that you can get in the store now.

We have already sold out of our copies of the limited silk screened pre order version, but our buds at Grave Mistake might still have some available, and will also be running a test press contest for those that preorder… they have a killer distro too, so if you’ve been meaning to pick up some other cool new records save yourself some shipping and get your NBs pre order at

Test presses have been approved and we already have the LP jackets and inserts ready and waiting, so as soon as the vinyl shows up we will be shipping orders out immediately.

Lastly, if you live in Europe you might want to wait to buy a copy from TAKEN BY SURPRISE RECORDS who are handling the European press… Those should be along shortly and we will also have copies available on our upcoming Euro tour. Keep an eye on

This is our new site so keep an eye here for up to date information on all things NIGHT BIRDS. Thanks for reading.

Speaking of which, you can check the shows section for our European tour dates as well as a few other shows, and always more to come. We already have lots of cool stuff in the works for late this year and early 2012, so stay tuned. Thanks for reading…
