Night Birds- Fresh Kills Volume 1 ( purchase here )
The Night Birds are one of the top punk bands tearing it up on the underground scene these days. Sound wise you get a mixture of pop punk, surf and straight up full speed ahead punk rock, think Adolescent / DI/ Agent Orange for influences. The cd I am promoting here is a compilation of the bands recorded material to date, which I will breakdown chronologically.

The Night Birds are heading out on a Summer Tour and will be releasing a full length album on Grave Mistake in July of 2011 titled "The Other Side of Darkness" , which I hear is their best recordings to date, at least that is what I have been told by people who have been fortunate enough to hear an advance of the record, which is really saying something based on the greatness of their back catalog as showcased on the compilation cd "The Fresh Kills Volume 1".
Also, I know from first hand experience that the Night Birds are one hell of a great live bands, as I was fortunate enough to have them come through town back in February of this year and completely blow me away with their live set.
Overall, the Night Birds have already amassed an impressive discography in a short period of time, and I for one am looking forward to the release of their new full length album "The Other Side of Darkness" . The buzz for this band is really picking up, so get on board now so you can claim you knew them before they became the next big thing...Dave G.
