You can pick up the new FRESH KILLS VOL. 1 CD collection along with both the S/T and MIDNIGHT MOVIES 7"s here:

Unfortunately the new LP "The Other Side of Darkness" will not be available for these shows, however keep your eyes peeled as we will have updates in June.

So our good buddy Patrick over at really wanted to help us spread the word about the NIGHT BIRDS "Fresh Kills" CD and proposed a little contest.  Make no mistake, things are usually ultra serious biz over here at GMHQ, although sometimes we DO like to have a little bit of fun.  His original idea was to simply ask people to "like" both of our facebook pages to be able to enter a contest for a free copy of the CD and each 7".  We thought that was a little bit too easy, and decided that the contest needed to be a little bit harder .... literally. 

One of the members of NIGHT BIRDS who will remain nameless (it was Brian) came up with the excellent (and mildly sensual) idea of a drawing contest ... a nude drawing contest.  All one had to do was sketch up a little (or big, based on either first hand knowledge or speculation) doodle of the NIGHT BIRDS men nood in order to enter said contest.  After all, it sort of falls right in line with the very sexual interview NIGHT BIRDS did for The1stfive last month, which you can read here:

You can check out / enter the contest here:

The contest runs until Monday, May 23rd so you have all weekend to put your art skills to the test.  Feel free to get as creative as possible ...

Although the contest only runs til Monday, anyone is welcome at anytime to submit nude drawings of NIGHT BIRDS (or any Grave Mistake bands) to and I will post them on my refrigerator.


Finally, here are some other upcoming shows of note, mark your damn calendars:

May 27 - Washington DC @ Black Cat w/ Scream
June 5 - Silver Spring, MD @ Quarry House w/ Tough Shits

June 7 - Richmond, VA @ Gallery 5 w/ Omegas, Kieltolaki, Unholy Thoughts, Black Age

Sept. 28 - Frederick, MD @ Kruggs w/ DRI

Also DIRECT CONTROL will be on tour in EUROPE this fall as well!!! More info on that over the next several months. 

That's it for now, thanks for reading!
