The production is really weak imo - despite Pete Newdeck saying he spent ages on the production and it couldn't be better lol.

Its a top 20 for me but not top 10.

What does excite me is their comment recently of many live dates coming soon - being a UK band I guess that means lots of UK dates :)

From Pete Nudeck on Facebook:

So I started pre production on the first 3 songs for the Midnite City album #2. We're winning already. Already loving the shape of these. All.killer no polyfiller.

Rob Wylde also mentioned in the same thread that the new album is targeted to be out in October of this year. 

Definitely looking forward to that one :)

Yep, that's where I ended up with it.
All songs are too similar and don't vary enough

That's the album of the year for 2018 taken care of then :)

Yeah, I'd be agreeing with that. That would be incredible if they did actually pull off two albums of the year two years in a row. 

Goes without saying that I'm dying to hear this.

This album was my surprise album of the year as did not expect much, yet got quite possibly the top album of the year spot (although I do go back and forwards on that with a couple of other albums). Just hope recording an new album so quickly won't hurt them.

Obviously, I would expect some of the songs on the new album to have been written at the same time as the debut anyway, which could go either way on quality.

I'm pretty sure I heard Rob say in an interview he had like 30-40 songs written for the debut album which might be one reason why they can turn another around quick.  

Will be interesting to see what they come up with but I'm expecting more of the sane which will be just fine with me.

I was in that thread and was asking for a sample, even if it was just a demo. Rob basically said that it will fall in line with the debut.

The final product will be a demo lol. Production on the debut sucked.

yep.

that since they wrote 30 songs for the debut I'm expecting the second album to suffer from the same issue.

I liked the debut but the lack of variety, pacing and production kept it out of my top 10. 

still looking forward to hearing more from them and still looking out for a live date ??

Easily solved by throwing a few different sounding songs in the mix to break it up a bit.
Probably could also be fixed up a lot just with different production.

 

One of my favorite recent albums is Foo Fighters - Sonic Highways
They recorded each song in a different place in a different city.
Sometimes a church, sometimes a studio etc
Each song has a different feel and sound to it.

I am more than happy to have 10 songs from the same sessions as the debut. Considering it was without filler, who's to say that it wouldn't be extremely likely that out of 20-30 remaining songs, it'd be pretty easy to pick another 10 killers? 

The only thing I hope changes at all is the production. I definitely wouldn't say it sucked, or was that bad. But no doubt at all that a first class production job would take these guys to another level.

I still do not get all this talk about production. The album sounded absolutely fine to me.

Sounded absolutely nothing like demos.

I agree with the production comments. Didn't suck, but could have been better.
Perfect example of this is the Gun phone number album, where apparently the demos sounded more like the tradition songs until some INXS dude got to them and killed them and the band.

not demos no, but play it after something like One Desire or Eclipse or HEAT and it sounds flat and muddy

No excuse for a shit production these days

From Facebook today:

So today marks the day that all recordings for the 2nd MIDNITE CITY album are done!
It's been 5 months in the making and a hell of a lot of hard work but we feel the results really do speak for themselves...
We raised the bar pretty high with our debut and many have questioned whether we could follow it up.
We believe we have and then some!
The album will be released in October via AOR HEAVEN.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the album title, track listing and tons more info on the build up to the release.

I can't remember if I had any idea that this was due so soon, but that's the best thing I've ever heard in my life. Wow, very exciting. Just what this year needs to give us at least one truly killer album. Can't wait.
