Nightmare of You back with Sammy Siegler, playing their debut in full at Bowery Ballroom in December
by Andrew Sacher
We just posted pictures of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah playing their debut in full for its tenth anniversary, and here's another band you may not have thought about in ten years about to do the same thing: Nightmare of You. They haven't played live at all in a few years, and frontman Brandon Reilly has lately been busy with The Movielife reunion. But they'll be picking back up to play their 2005 self-titled in full on December 11 at Bowery Ballroom. They'll have original drummer Sammy Siegler (Judge, CIV, Youth of Today, etc) in tow for this show (he left the band in 2008), and they're promising special guests too. Tickets go on sale Friday (8/7) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (8/5) at noon.
If you missed out on Nightmare of You the first time around, it was a chance for these former punk/hardcore musicians to dive fully into Smiths/Cure/etc worship. Some of it lives up pretty well -- listen to a few highlights from the album, below...
