Night Birds at Death by Audio in 2013 (more by Sarja Hasan)
Night Birds

NJ skate/surf punks Night Birds released the Maimed for the Masses 7" on Fat Wreck Chords in 2013 (ahead of their full length on Grave Mistake) and played the label's CMJ showcase that same year. Now they've officially announced that they've signed to Fat and will release their next full length on the label, which they're currently writing. Singer Brian Gorsegner says about the signing:

We are excited to announce we are in the early stages of a writing a new album for Fat Wreck Chords to be released some time in 2015. It was a soul crushing, stir crazy winter and we're really looking forward to getting that grossness out and onto a slab of wax for your listening pleasure. Prepare for what is bound to be next year's feel bad album of the year.

Night Birds also have many tour dates coming up, including their previously discussed House of Vans show on 7/3 with Black Lips and a special guest. Just before that though, they'll play Howell, NJ's Shorestock at Gamechanger World on June 28 with Title Fight, Get Real, Full Speed Ahead, Stick Together, The Little Rascals, Blind Justice and Heavy Chains. Before Title Fight's set, the "Shore Style Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament" will take place at the event. Tickets for that are on sale now.

As for Title Fight, they also play Canada's crazy Amnesia Rockfest this weekend (6/20-21) and Philly's This Is Hardcore in July.
