The NIte Lights

Media Title

Philadelphia's perenial art rock band The Nite Lights are proud to present their newest venture, "The Poster Series". Inspired by the illustrated poetry of Stevie Smith, songwriter/paper-cutout artist, Joe Boruchow composed songs and corresponding posters to be released free on their website and promoted throughout Philly with his familiar black and white flyers. Download the songs to your Ipod/mp3 player or iTunes and the song specific poster will be displayed where you'd normally see the album cover. > The past two years have been a period of adversity for the band as their bass player/producer/recording engineer, Swifty Morgan has had repeated surgeries and radiation treatments for thyriod cancer. Guitarist Stevie Burkitt had back surgery this past summer and Joe had ear surgery to relieve a chronic ear infection (drummer Jon Kois has remained relatively healthy despite his debaucherous lifestyle). All of this has had little effect on their creative output as they have released an ep entitled "Descend" and continued to play live shows locally when possible. > "The Poster Series" marks their return to full productivity and is an ongoing experiment in the democratization of art and music. Realizing the change in the way music is consumed "The Poster Series" is an attempt to connect to an audience who has, up until now, been unable to find the band's limited release recordings or see their live act. Since their formation in 2001 The Nite Lights have pushed the boudaries of the local music scene by defying description and moving against the trends to create truely original music and posters, fusing Boruchow's visual art with the band's music. "The Poster Series" is the most fully realized manifestation of this fusion and the band hopes it will bring them closer to their vision of a new kind of rock and roll: home made, graceful, balls out, available to all and free of charge! "The Poster Series" brings to life the story songs that have become characteristic of the The Nite Lights. > > To Download "The Poster Series" go to www.thenitelights.com
