About this event

ACTORS:

The Jason Corbett-led outfit ACTORS are standing on the shoulders of titans with their brand of the style, and could almost be referred to as "post-post-punk". In a period where we narrowcast rather than broadcast so fans and new music-seekers can firmly plant themselves in a niche, Corbett takes swings at creating sounds and production techniques that one would not usually find in a starter package of cliché plugins and samples. Backed by a stoic yet playful backing band, the frontman shows an enthusiasm while performing and recording that often isn't seen or heard in his preferred genre.

NIGHT BATTLES from Raleigh, NC is Charlie King ( vocals ), Chris Skelly ( guitar ), Kent Corley ( bass ), and Justin Ellis ( drums ). NIGHT BATTLES have a powerful, yet nuanced sound that is deeply rooted in Post Punk but also leans heavily into Noise Rock, Doom, Surf & Garage Rock. NIGHT BATTLES has drawn comparisons to bands like Bauhaus, Killing Joke, The Black Angels, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Jesus Lizard and Joy Division.

NIGHT BATTLES was created in 2016 by vocalist Charlie King and guitarist Chris Skelly ( formerly of 90’s post hardcore band Dahlia Seed ) who both shared a love of Spacemen 3, The Gun Club and early 80’s hardcore punk and this synthesis became the structure of the early NIGHT BATTLES sound. Subsequently their sound evolved to also include a shared influence of post punk which gave NIGHT BATTLES their now familiar swirling, reverb drenched trademark sound. Despite all the dark influences, NIGHT BATTLES retains a strong sense of melody and hooks in all of their songs.

NIGHT BATTLES just released their debut LP “Year Of No Days” in May 2021 on Snappy Little Numbers out of Denver, CO. Prior to “Year Of No Days” NIGHT BATTLES have previously released two EP’s in 2017 and 2018 and have toured extensively in the Southeast US.
