The Nightmare Police - Long Island, NY

New York pop-punk trio The Nightmare Police have released their newest single 'Where Were You?'.
Vocalist Ian Washington spoke exclusively to New Noise Magazine about the new record.
Their new track is taken from their upcoming sophomore EP Losing The Light, set to be released on June 9th.

Hailing from Long Island, New York, The Nightmare Police are on a mission to bring light from the darkness. Hitting on relatable topics such as youth, drinking, loss and addiction, their infectious tunes leave a feeling of nostalgia and self-reflection. Citing influences from Alkaline Trio to Fall Out Boy, the band creates anthemic pop punk songs filled with catchy melodies and driving guitar riffs.
On the heels of their debut EP "if only i could...", released in October 2015, The Nightmare Police are primed for their sophomore release. Losing The Light, produced by Frank Laudicina and Brett Romnes, is out June 9th.

The Nightmare Police set off on tour next month, with the 8-date run kicking off in Connecticut on May 6th.

Head North - Buffalo, NY

Buffalo, NY-based, cosmic rock band Head North announce their debut LP, The Last Living Man Alive Ever In The History Of The World, due out on June 2nd. The album was produced and mixed by Brett Romnes (I Am the Avalanche) and mastered by Jesse Cannon (Animal Collective, Man Overboard) at Barbershop Studios in Lake Hopatcong, NJ.

Having already received attention from Noisey, New Noise Magazine and Dying Scene from their 2014 EP, Bloodlines, Head North is currently gearing up for the release of their full body of work and accompanying tour.

The concept album revolves around an alternate world where both God and love are forbidden. The personal narratives are told through the perspectives of principal songwriters Brent Martone, Ben Lieber and Alex Matos, whose driving force can be heard through their transition from harder, louder rock driven tracks to the more atmospheric and dreamy second half of the record. Martone's gritty lyricism and the accompanying instrumentals reflect the groups evolution, as they reflect on their previous release and more forward with an air of wisdom and continued understanding of the band's place in the world, and the alternate universe they've created.

Last summer, the band released album track and video, "God (Bring It Back)," which has received attention from fans and press alike, and has built momentum towards the full length release out this summer. Infections Magazine stated on the video, "Displaying a new, melodic sound, layered with their signature introspective lyrics, the band prove that they’re coming back stronger than ever with their new release."
