Defeater Announces Empty Days & Sleepless Nights

Massachusetts-based Defeater is proud to announce the title and release date for their forthcoming album: Empty Days & Sleepless Nights, available March 8th, 2011 from Bridge Nine Records. The band’s second full-length is a double LP, kicking off with ten of the heaviest and most intricately-written songs (Empty Days) Defeater has done to date. Following those ten tracks are four acoustic songs (Sleepless Nights) that sound a lot like Rocky Votolato and Ryan Adams. Guitarist Jay Maas said, “This new album was a very natural progression for us. We’d cut our teeth on an acoustic track on Travels (“Prophet in Plain Clothes”) which is one of the most well-received songs we play live. And Derek (Defeater’s vocalist) had written some lyrics that worked beautifully against an acoustic canvas so we decided to follow the heavier tracks on this new album up with these songs, resulting in a double LP release.” Fans of heavy music should not fret – the first LP features 10 tracks that are incredibly dynamic and huge-sounding melodic hardcore songs. Maas continued, “Empty Days & Sleepless Nights is truly our most realized work yet. While we wrote this record, we really incorporated all of our musical tastes and creative talents. There are some surprises on this record for sure, but also plenty to love for fans of Defeater. We couldn’t be more proud of how this album turned out.”
