Night Birds
Night Birds
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, and Adolescents, 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 (with a new 7" and LP just around the corner!), 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.
Drakulas
Drakulas
Drakulas present Raw Wave. Raw Wave is a collection of songs told from the different points of view of various characters in a fictional metropolis in our not too distant past.  A bustling city center not unlike Times Square in the 70's filled with sin and sex is the backdrop where gangs, street preachers, sex addicts, pimps, prostitutes and pornographers live and work.  People of this world describe the time period of these songs as the Raw Wave. A wave of new analog technology that hit the city wiping away many of the mores and pretense of the past.

Drakulas are from Austin, TX and feature members of Riverboat Gamblers and Rise Against, among others. This is their debut LP, following a 7” on Red Scare. This pretty much nails the sound the Texas branch of the extended Dirtnap family is infamous for. Vibrant, high energy, and dangerously catchy, Raw Wave is tailor-made for fans of The Marked Men, The Dickies, and vintage-era Riverboat Gamblers/High Tension Wires, with a killer recording by Mark Ryan and Jeff Burke at Cool Devices Studio in Ft. Worth, TX.  And then there’s the lyrics, high-concept/low-brow weirdness that could only have come from the twisted mind of Gamblers frontman Mike Wiebe. Call it a super-group if you must, but don’t call it a side-project.
