Night Birds - Roll Credits LPLabel: Fat Wreck Chords
It has been a decade since NIGHT BIRDS exploded onto the scene, resuscitating the surf-inspired '80s hardcore sound that fans continuously flock to. With a style akin to the likes of Adolescents, Germs, and Dead Kennedys, Night Birds bring an epileptic energy that defies the listener to sit still. Through three full-length albums the band continues to deliver their signature onslaught of throwback-meets-modern hardcore. As with their live show, this is prevalent on their latest mini-album Roll Credits. With the addition of original guitarist MIKE HUNCHBACK, their frenetic energy reaches a whole new level throughout Roll Credits’ eight tracks. By keeping the record concise, fans can expect this album to be a lean combination of the band’s best elements. From the propulsive, self-deprecating “Onward to Obscurity” (featuring guest vocals from POISON IDEA's JERRY A.) to the fantastically tongue-in-cheek “My Dad Is the BTK,” you won’t find a whiff of filler on this thing.
