From the cold rainy east end of Glasgow,
Northern Nightlights is a pop punk band who broaden the horizons by writing songs about
Space, Universe, and Social problems rather than heartbreak.
Often being compared from NoFX to Four Year Strong while diving into other genres.
Our blend of fast pop punk and breakdowns with our lyric content gives off a
"If your favourite scientist was a pop punk kid in a band" sound.
Since forming in mid 2013 we managed to release our first Self-Titled E.P for almost no money at all.
The whole record was D.I.Y from booking rehearsal time to record drums rather than using a professional studio to
recording guitars and a bass at a home studio for free and spending many weekends mixing and doing vocals at another home studio.
the record was helped out by a family member who is a signed to Sony/Bmg and used his home studio.
We released our first free single "Start Runnin'" along with "Shout" as a single and used these songs to get
on various compilations from Keep Smiling Record's We're All Friends Here (1 & 2) and
This Is Pop Punk Promotions Sampler.
Once our record was released we managed to snag some cool shows opening up for an
All Day Pop Punk Festival hosted by Keep Smiling Records
and opening for newly signed Fearless records act As It Is.
a few months our founding drummer Kieran left which put us on a hault.
we decided to take the time to write new material and audition several drummers.
After a few rehearsals with Sam who was on point every time and made us feel like better musicians
so we decided he was perfect to join our adventure.
Setting ourselves apart from the crowd is something we take pride in as the genre becomes over saturated
from bands being exact replicas and singing about the same girl who dumped them.
Our core is pop punk with a different message and breaking the boundaries of pop punk into realms
that gives pop punk a new meaning and thought.
Giving listeners the chance to experience what Pop punk is capable of is something we try to achieve with
every song we make.
We are currently recording and soon releasing our new songs and will be promote through local shows and
a small weekend tour around more rainy cities in Scotland and fill our guitarist Andy and lucky fans with a
beer bong each show and try and bring some fun and be interactive with the people who pay to see us.
Also we will be giving away free merch and free music to everyone who shows up to our shows as a thanks.
We hope to tour around the country and give back as much as we can
to the people who support us and keep us writing music.
(We can also make Andy number 2 do anything in the name of the band,
put peanut butter anywhere on your body and… yeah)
