Nearly two years after the release of their debut LP The Other Side of Darkness, Grave Mistake Records (US) and Taken By Surprise Records (Europe) will deliver Night Birds’ second full-length, Born to Die in Suburbia on July 9th! 14 tracks of scintillating hardcore punk – refashioning the dark overtones and surfy inflections of early ’80s Cali punk for a modern world on the very verge of a nervous breakdown. Recorded over the better part of the Winter of 2013 with Mitch Rackin at Seaside Lounge (Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, The Obits) in Brooklyn, NY, Night Birds have created a record that is distinctly more “Night Birds” than ever. Featuring guest vocals from Eric Davidson (New Bomb Turks, The Livids) and Miranda Taylor (Hunchback, Black Wine), Born to Die in Suburbia is rife with the band’s signature tales of dysfunction, despair and lamentations of a culture in rapid decline.
