Night Owls - S/T (CD)
Release Date: 11/17/09
Syracuse, NY band Night Owls deliver a rocking, post-hardcore punch in the gut with their debut CD EP!
Make comparisons lightly when describing Syracuse's Night Owls for the individual members will tell you there is more than simple nods to other bands to be made. Seeing as each member has been involved in voluminous amounts of other local bands over the years (Another Breath, The Funeral, Spark Lights the Friction, AWOL, How We Are, The Disaster, Another Victim, etc.) they cull their sound from a wealth of experience and a need to create. While previously members had been used to playing fast and meaty hardcore they kept that tenacious fury and mixed it with a more punchy, rocking approach. The result gives winks to Rocket From the Crypt and Hot Snakes, and at the same time keeps a footing in the cathartic post-hardcore of bands like Quicksand. But again, the band will insist you let the music speak for itself. This CDEP (in a real neat package!) combines their initial demo, three new tracks, and a whole live set from the Assault City Hardcore Fest in Nov. '08
