“Under the Moonlight Sky” is the first taste of Nights’ upcoming album ‘High Tides – Distant Skies,’ to be released September 11, 2020, on CD, Vinyl, and digital format.
‘High Tides – Distant Skies’ is the fourth album from Night. The album contains nine new tracks of classic sounding rock music. ‘High Tide – Distant Skies’ follows the band’s critically 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.

Night should be spelled ‘R.O.C.K.’, The Swedish band that started out as a Judas Priest and Saxon worshipping 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 too seriously. 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!” – 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.
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.
Night have released a music video for their latest single “Under the Moonlight Sky,” see the video below!
