Hometown: Brooklyn, NY (USA)

About:

Night Birds is comprised of four thoroughly modern morons from the New Jersey shore and Brooklyn, NY. After one listen it will only seem right that these guys spawn from the same state that brought you such class acts as the Misfits and Adrenalin OD. This high-octane surf-inspired punk rock band formed in the spring of 2009 following the demise of bassist Joe Keller’s band, The Ergs!

While they take cues from the greats of 1980’s hardcore/punk bands like the Circle Jerks, Zero Boys, Adolescents, and Dead Kennedys, they still manage to keep it new and fresh and consistently take it to that next level. To date, the band has released three 7" EPs as well as their 2011 debut album, The Other Side of Darkness on Grave Mistake Records, as well as playing nearly 200 shows all over the United States, Canada, and Europe. If you like Seinfeld, pizza, horror movies, or any combination of the three, Night Birds may be your new favorite band.
