Descendents
Descendents
Night Birds is comprised of four thoroughly modern morons from the New Jersey shore. After one listen it will only seem right that these guys spawn from the same state that brought you such class acts as the Misfits and Adrenalin OD. This high-octane surf-inspired punk rock band formed in the spring of 2009 following the demise of bassist Joe Keller's band, The Ergs! While perhaps best known for their extensive touring and electrifying live performances, Night Birds continue to excel in the studio - crafting fresh, powerful recordings influenced by punk/hardcore greats of yore. To date, the band has released a handful 7″ EPs as well as three full-length albums; their 2011 debut album, The Other Side of Darkness, 2013's Born To Die In Suburbia (both on Grave Mistake Records), and 2015's Mutiny at Muscle Beach on Fat Wreck Chords. Tuneful and aggressive, yet far from formulaic, the music of Night Birds is both attuned to the times and rooted in the classics.

As previously reported, Descendents have shared a new song "Victim of Me". Visit https://soundcloud.com/epitaph-records/descendents-victim-of-me/s-iSPaX to listen. Descendents' first Epitaph release since Everything Sucks in 1996, Hypercaffium Spazzinate, began taking shape after the band ended an extended hiatus to play live in 2010. Though still tight, they lived apart: singer Milo Aukerman — whose cartoon rendering famously serves as the band's logo — was now living in Delaware, bassist Karl Alvarez and founder and drummer Bill Stevenson were in Colorado, and guitarist Stephen Egerton had settled in Oklahoma. So the album came to life over three years as the band sent tracks back and forth, occasionally meeting up in Karl and Bill's adopted hometown of Fort Collins. Adopting such a protracted process meant not having to rush things, allowing for some of their sharpest songwriting yet.

Every Descendents album is an event. Formed in 1978, the band's first releases have proven historic, and all the ones since have only further refined the Descendents concept. Punk, pop, buzzing, summery, heartfelt, defiant, adolescent, and wise all at once — the Descendents. Twelve years have passed since there's been new Descendents music. Finally, here comes their long-awaited album, Hypercaffium Spazzinate.
