NIGHT BIRDS UPDATE: SHOW, FEST, and TOUR DATES FOR 2012 / FRESH KILLS VOL. 1 LP

NIGHT BIRDS are busier than ever this year and have just announced a ton of Fest dates, East Coast shows, and a West Coast Tour this summer that will also find them in Hawaii and Canada.

The dates include Sound & Fury Fest in Santa Barbara, CA, The Fest 11 in Gainesville, FL, Ottawa Explosion Fest in Ottawa, ON, Bernard College's WBAR-B-Q in New York, Insubordination Fest in Baltimore, MD, No Suck Fest in Honolulu, Hawaii, and Road to Ruin Fest in Philadelphia, PA.  Additionally this spring will see Night Birds playing several shows on the East Coast, including an in-store at Generation Records in NYC on Record Store Day (w/ PAUL COLLINS!), a couple of gigs with CEREMONY, and a sold out show with COCK SPARRER and the CRO-MAGS, before heading over to the West Coast this summer for the first time ever (full tour dates below).
 
Most recently, the band appeared on a live-taping of The Chris Gethard Show, their performance (and ensuing aftermath) can be viewed HERE. Definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen it yet!

Also, just in time for their West Coast tour, we will be releasing the NIGHT BIRDS "Fresh Kills Vol. 1" singles/demo collection on 12" format! With the demo and "Killer Waves" 7" single long gone, their debut "S/T" 7" EP almost gone (I have about 10 copies left, Dirtnap has the same, and the band is completely sold out), and their "Midnight Movies" 7" EP down to the final pressing, we thought now would be a great time to compile all of that early material on LP format to keep all of these tracks available on vinyl (we did the CD version last year).  We'll have more info on this release in the coming months, but grab those singles while you can!

If you have yet to pick up any of the NIGHT BIRDS releases (or are missing one or two titles), head over to the Grave Mistake webstore because I have a bunch of cool package deals to save you some cash if you buy multiple releases (I've got some NIGHT BIRDS shades too, just in time for Summer!)

That's all for now, expect a lot more GRAVE MISTAKE news in the coming weeks; I've got two new 7"s coming out next week (BLOODY GEARS "Frozen Rain" 7" and BIG EYES "Back From the Moon" 7"), a couple more tour announcements from DEEP SLEEP and BIG EYES, a SCHOOL JERKS LP not too far away, and of course I'm consistently putting tons of great new records in the webstore.

Thanks for reading and thanks for your support!
