Atlantic recording group Night Terrors of 1927 has unveiled a wide-ranging slate of activity that extends through the summer and beyond.
Night Terrors of 1927 – that is, Blake Sennett (Rilo Kiley, The Elected) and Jarrod Gorbel (The Honorary Title) – is poised to travel North America as support to fellow Atlantic recording group Fitz & The Tantrums, with dates set to get underway on May 3rd at Kansas City’s Kansas City Power & Light District Outdoor Stage and then continuing through the month (see attached itinerary). Following that tour, the band has announced a series of West Coast dates supporting Magic Man. Later in the year, the band has slated performances at such eagerly anticipated festivals as San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival (August 8th-10th) and Austin, Texas’ ACL Music Festival (October 3rd-5th and 10th-12th). Additional dates will be announced soon. For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.nightterrorsof1927.com.
Night Terrors of 1927 arrived late last year to critical praise with the release of their debut EP, “GUILTY PLEAS.” SPIN praised the band for crafting “darkly cathartic synth-pop,” further noting its “open-hearted, high-dram glory.” Neon Gold praised Night Terrors of 1927’s debut single, “Young and Vicious,” calling it “a rollicking, angst-ridden alt-rock anthem.” “An unusual combination of icy and rousing,” wrote Pigeons and Planes, declaring “GUILTY PLEAS” to be “rock for the current moment, filtering familiar sounds from different genres and sources without tipping its hand too much as to outside influences, a smooth blend. It’s immediately accessible without sacrificing a sense of reserved cool.”
Night Terrors of 1927 have just teamed with Interview Magazine to premiere a haunting new companion video for the EP’s “Young and Vicious.”
“Young and Vicious” comes on the heels of the “GUILTY PLEAS” EP’s first single/ video, “Dust and Bones.” That track’s companion clip is streaming now at Night Terrors of 1927’s official YouTube channel, while a new remix by Wax Nostalgic (Phoenix, Passion Pit, Local Natives) recently premiered exclusively via Indie Shuffle.
Night Terrors of 1927 arrived last fall amidst a shroud of rare mystery. The band’s first released track “Watch The World Go Dark,” earned instant acclaim from England’s The Guardian, which noted, “an impending apocalypse never sounded so good.” Night Terrors of 1927 revealed themselves soon thereafter, tearing through two jam-packed showcases at New York City’s annual CMJ Music Marathon, followed by a series of West Coast live dates that included a residency at Los Angeles’ The Echo. Since then, the band has toured North America alongside The Colorist and earned applause for a series of showcase performances at the South By Southwest (SXSW) extravaganza in Austin, Texas. Esquire decreed Night Terrors of 1927 as one of “The 2014 SXSW Bands You Need To Hear,” hailing the band for “blatantly, unapologetically swinging for the fences,” noting “bat meets ball in a big way.”
Night Terrors of 1927 is currently working on a full-length album, teaming with producers Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, fun.) and Ben H. Allen (Washed Out, Walk The Moon, Cut Copy) in addition to production from Sennett. The as-yet-untitled collection is slated for release later this year.
