Night Birds @ Asbury Lanes, 7/13/2013
Night Birds

Last weekend Night Birds played some seriously packed and sweaty shows to celebrate the release of their scorching new record, Born to Die in Suburbia. People turned out and the boys didn't disappoint, shredding through a mix of classics as well as a bunch off the new album. They were joined by Canadian punks Omegas for all the shows, with Altered Boys, Paranoias, Give and Nuclear Santa Claust all joining on for different dates.

The weekend of shows kicked off on Thursday night (July 11), when the band played a full house in Philadelphia. The show went down in what was basically a kitchen, and Night Birds singer Brian admonished the crowd, "You should be grateful these people throw such awesome shows in their house, I don't even let people in my kitchen with their shoes on." The next night (July 12) brought the Birds to Brooklyn where Chris Gethard hosted the sweaty evening at Death by Audio. They closed the weekend out with a rowdy show at Asbury Lanes in New Jersey on July 13.  Live video from that show is in this post.

Night Birds are playing three shows with fellow Grave Mistake labelmates Red Dons (from whom we just premiered a track) coming up, and next month they tour with the legendary Zero Boys, hitting Europa in Brooklyn on August 29 (tickets).

Full tour dates are listed, along with the Asbury Lanes video, LP stream and pictures from some of the openers on the tour, below.

omg they are wearing T-shirts! oh except the one guy in the tank top. who is HE trying to be? some tank top wearer from the 80's? i saw a guy in a movie in the 80's wearing a tank top, it's sad how much time he must have taken to pick out that tank top.

what a bunch of posers.

further proof that hardcore has been dead since 2001.

Night Birds is merely a big fish in a small pond called 2013 NJHC.

Overrated and overplayed.
