Yup that's right, we've been talking about this record for the better part of 2011 and now we couldn't be more thrilled to announce that "The Other Side of Darkness," the debut LP from NIGHT BIRDS, is now available for preorder! I think by now it's safe to say that NIGHT BIRDS need no introduction, so you should know what to expect from these NY/NJ boys ... they pulled out all of the stops on this LP and are very excited that it will soon be available for mass consumption. The release date is still slated for SEPTEMBER 13, 2011 and we are aiming to have orders shipping by that date.
PREORDER the LP in the GRAVE MISTAKE WEBSTORE!
Although there is no colored vinyl, we've done up something special for the first hundred or so orders so if you get your order in early enough, you might get a nice surprise when your LP shows up. We are also doing a TEST PRESS contest - we will be giving away two test pressings of the LP, anyone who preorders the LP from Grave Mistake in August will be eligible to win.
On top of the preorder, we've got some brand new NIGHT BIRDS T-Shirts in the webstore , as well as a few package deals which will save you a few bucks if you need to pick up any other NIGHT BIRDS releases along with your copy of THE OTHER SIDE OF DARKNESS! You can check out all of the preorder packages and t-shirts here:
NIGHT BIRDS PREORDERS / PACKAGE DEALS / T-SHIRTS
The band themselves are also taking preorders, and you can order directly from them on their new website which can be found here:
NIGHT BIRDS WEBSITE / WEBSTORE
They have a few different t-shirt designs as well and rest assured that no matter who you order from, we will make sure your order is shipped out as soon as the LP is ready! We are currently hoping to start shipping around Mid-September, so please just keep in mind that this a PREORDER and we don't currently have the release in house and ready to ship so please be patient! We definitely appreciate the orders and will do our best to keep everyone up to date as to the status of the shipping date. Also, please remember that if you order any other records or distro items with your preorder, the full order will ship when the NIGHT BIRDS record is ready.
We currently have two tracks from the LP posted on the GRAVE MISTAKE RECORDS BANDCAMP PAGE, along with a ton of other GM releases for full stream or download. Please check those out as well!
THE OTHER SIDE OF DARKNESS will also be released in Europe by our good friends at TAKEN BY SURPRISE RECORDS so keep an eye on their website for ordering information. NIGHT BIRDS will also be doing a EUROPEAN TOURhttp://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=140469062699951 in September and October, please click the link to check the dates (which are also posted below) and come on out if they are hitting a town near you!
Finally, as I've mentioned before, if you do a zine, blog, radio show, write reviews, do interviews, anything of that sort and would like to receive promos for this release (and other Grave Mistake releases), please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with some info and we'll see about getting you some stuff to check out!
