Night By Night - 'Just Tonight'

Well, f*ck me. Google and I are just not getting along tonight. Another band I can literally find NOTHING about, even if I type in the supposed name of the EP and band name... f*ck me. Oh well, does anyone know these guys? Here's the one write-up I've seen on them:

 

NIGHT BY NIGHT are pioneering a killer combination of contemporary and classic rock. Fusing powerful guitar riffs with lush three-part vocal harmonies, their exhilarating brand of hook-laden hard rock flourishes on the band’s debut E.P. Just Tonight (produced by Paul Tipler (Placebo, Idlewild)).

 

Fronted by The Sisters of Mercy’s lead guitarist, Ben Christo, NIGHT BY NIGHT are re-treading the trails that were blazed by the likes of Def Leppard, Night Ranger and Bon Jovi, all of whom the band cite as major influences. While the impact of these bands is clear in the songs presented on this E.P., NIGHT BY NIGHT are redefining the terrain: bringing a modern edge to the melodic rock genre. Drawing on complex themes of heartbreak and hope in equal measure, the record will appeal not only to the genre’s traditional listeners, but is inclusive to fans from as far afield as Faith No More, My Chemical Romance, Thrice and Motley Crüe.

 

Showcasing the band’s adaptability, NIGHT BY NIGHT were recently asked to perform alongside L.A. goth rockers London After Midnight, who made their first appearance in the U.K. in 13 years. NIGHT BY NIGHT are unfazed about confronting expectations and challenging perspectives, while producing music that has integrity and a sense of meaning so often lacking in today’s disposable climate.

 

For fans of Def Leppard, Story of the Year, Winger, The 69 Eyes, Lostprophets, FM, Firehouse, D:A:D, Crashdïet, Dokken, AC/DC, Funeral for A Friend, Cheap Trick, Halestorm, Maryslim, Talisman and Night Ranger.

“Night by Night have the potential to bring melodic rock kicking and screaming into public awareness….Combining big hooks and melodies with a sense of pain, suffering, and life experience.†â€â€œ Komodo Rock

 

“A true revelation, this is pure unfiltered melodic rock that is the best thing to come out of Britain in many years. Well-written lyrics, catchy rhythms demonstrating some nice tricks and velvety licks alongside outstanding harmonising makes Night by Night top of the class.†â€â€œ DJ Neurofen

 

"Damn, this was refreshing and good, and must be the best thing to come out of Britain in ages. Great riffs and killer harmonies and if there is any justice in the world, Night by Night will be HUGE and “Here I am†would be on top of all the charts... The combination of old 80's glam/sleaze/rock & roll and modern music is a real kick in the teeth... Really looking forward to hearing more from this band†â€â€œ Rock Artist Service, Norway

 

Tracklisting:

1. Just Tonight

2. Inside

3. Here I Am

 

I would love to see these guys get a full album out there because I truly believe they could be the first band to crack even the hardest "modern rock" hater. The music is really 100% Heavy Harmonies material, but the title track does have vocals which did make me think modern rock... even if the songs are almost prime Dokken-esque at times.

 

A really promising band which could set the scene alight if they get their stuff out there. Watch the name.

This is ok for what it is, 2nd tune was quite good, but generally I found it a bit weak overall. There are so many bands out there now doing this sort of early 80's inspired stuff (some good, some not so good) that this really doesn't stand out to be honest. Would definitley check more of them out, but I can't say they exactly blew me away.

 

I did laugh out loud when I read the 'Best thing to come out of Britain in many years' quote. - I now have to wipe off the coffee I spit all over my monitor. Some people shouldn't be allowed near a keyboard really

Pretty good actually. The vocals werent the best, esp the backing vocs. But the songs were pretty catchy and had some good guitar work.

 

Just missing that killer touch for me though :unsure:

 

Id be interested to hear a full release though.

I have to agree with Jez...heard it done a million times better by other bands.

Yep, a little too generic. With all the great hard rock coming out these days, these guys are gonna have to do something a little different to stand out in the crowd.

Yeah, after a few more spins and less alcohol in the system, I pretty much agree with you guys. I do like what they're doing and I do think there is potential here for a great full-length release, but they're possibly not quite as good as I imagined in my Friday night stupor. :lol: I do like them, though.

    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
