Swedish rock band Night will release their fourth album “High Tides - Distant Skies” on September 11th, 2020.

The album will be released on The Sign Records on Vinyl, CD and Digital format, and contains 9 new songs. On Friday, April 24, the band will release the first single from the album, entitled “Under the Moonlight Sky”. Pre-save the first single here.

“High Tides - Distant Skies” is the fourth album from Night, set for release via The Sign Records, on September 11th. The album contains nine new tracks of classic sounding rock music.

“High Tides - Distant Skies” follows the band's critical acclaimed album “Raft of the World”. If their last album was darker and had a strong proto-metal niche, the new album has much wider influences and a more is more approach. The album is built upon rhythm and melodies, and Oskar Andersson now shares the position as lead vocalist with Sammy Ouirra.

“To create something big we had to downscale to something small. This time we had no room for Flying V guitars, but instead focused on solid single-coil sound. The new sound created a bigger space for vocals and arrangements”, says Sammy Ouija.

Night has once again taken the help from producer Ola Ersfjord (Primordial, Tribulation, Honeymoon Disease, ISE). The band has stepped outside their comfort zone, something that becomes possible after taking their time both with songwriting and having a long term collaboration with their producer. Night has since their last album enlisted drummer Linus Fritzson (Ambush). The band has spent a long time concentrating on songwriting, building trust and being able to step outside of the box. There are more vocal arrangements, but also larger arrangements on the songs and even strings.

Night has proven to be a live act to count on all around Europe. From touring with a variety of bands such as bigger names like Ghost to more established underground acts like Dead Lord and Angel witch. The band has been able to maintain a steady reputation and managed to spread their rock all over, from the Greek Gods of Athens, the Catalans of Barcelona to the Vikings of Norway. In September, they’ll join forces with former label mates in Hällas and play 15 European dates.

Night should be spelled “R.O.C.K.”, The Swedish band that started out as a Judas Priest and Saxon worshiping band with their first release in 2012 has now transformed into a timeless and classic rock act with loads of proto-metal influences. Hailed for their wide influences and direct approach the band finds themselves taking new paths in a musical landscape that is well known for all fans of guitar-based music.
 
“Rock is a serious thing, but at the same time, it cant be taken to serious. Rocking is fun and fun it shall remain. For us, I think the future is looking bright and it's feeling groovy. Put on your boots and get ready for the next chapter of Night! Imagine a twilight zone where disco didn’t die and rock music was allowed inside studio 54!”, says Sammy Ouirra.
 
It’s easy to grow fond of Night. It’s easy to say that their influences today could be found in history with artists as Phil Lynott, Mark Knopfler, or Scorpions ‘76, or Blue Öyster Cult around ‘77. But it’s so much more. With their last album “Raft of the World” (2017 The Sign Records) the band got hails from most part of the rock scene. The dark album moved the band several steps away from the NWOBHM background and towards a proto-metal atmosphere of the ‘70s.
 
Night keeps moving and during the spring of 2020 the band is releasing a two-track 7" called “Feeling it Everywhere”. The directions of the new tracks take the band even more into the rhythm and style where the 70s collided with the 80s. Where Rock music meets up with Disco. It was a golden age for music, and the go-to period for many bands to find their influences. The recording was done as an in-studio live session to keep the feeling of live music.
 
Night is preparing to release their new album set for release in autumn 2020. The band is once again taking help from producer Ola Ersfjord (Primordial, Dead Lord, Imperial State Electric) that the band started to work with on “Raft of the World”. The new album is recorded in their hometown Linköping, Sweden. Night recorded their self-titled debut album that was released in 2013 and their second album “Soldiers of Time” was released in 2015. In 2019 the band released “Raft of the World’ in Brasil through Hellion Records.
