Night Birds - 2013 - Born To Die In Suburbia

Night Birds is a four piece punk band from New Jersey, USA. Born To Die In Suburbia is their new LP. Night Birds play a brand of hardcore punk that is tempered by a heavy helping of surf rock. The opening instrumental track Escape from New York set the up tempo, melodic pace which holds through the whole album. The intro is the most obviously surf influenced track here but these songs are infused with a spastic energy that keeps everything moving at a breakneck pace. Highlights include Domestic Dispute, Ads In My Eyes, New Cults, Silver Alert, and the aforementioned Escape From New York. If you like your hardcore punk with lots of jump straight up and down energy Night Bird's Born To Die In Suburbia will serve well.
