Night Kills Day offers contest, album & tour



NIGHT KILLS THE DAY are set to release their first full-length debut, the sonically dark and moody THE STUDY OF MAN… via NYC indie Score Records. Due out March 27, the album is filled with highlights like the anthemic first single “Dive”--hitting specialty radio in March--the electro-pop “Rainbows in N.Y.C.” and the danceable “Enjoy The Ride.”

The NYC group--LUKE BRIAN (vocals), TIMOTHY FALZONE (bass), IZZY LUGO (guitar) and ROGER BENTON (drums)--will launch a North American tour March 22 with like-minded rockers Electric Six and Test Your Reflex. The winter trek begins in Toronto and includes a stop at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC Saturday, March 24 and a CD release party in Los Angeles April 20 at the Key Club. Look for the band to announce SXSW shows soon.

Inspired by such groups as The Cure, Joy Division and Bauhaus, NIGHT KILLS THE DAY teamed with producer Joe Blaney--noted for his engineering work with the Ramones and Keith Richards as well as on the seminal Clash albums Combat Rock and This is Radio Clash--for their debut.

The video for the group’s first single “Dive” was lensed by esteemed music video director Darren Doane (AFI, Funeral For A Friend) and has the added distinction of being his final video. Click on the link to watch:
