Releasing older songs is a tricky beast. On one hand, it could be bumming out the people who enjoyed hearing what the band evolved into. On the other hand, nostalgia sells…and daddy needs to eat! So…Nevermind 2! Broken Bones and Bloody Kisses has seen a few pressings in the past, but landing a physical copy of You Are My Canvas (which was only released on burned CDs, crafted in the Lovat-Frasers’ basement) is almost impossible. And ooooooh boy…the pre-demo demo (or PDD) versions of Sketch Artist Composite and The Anatomy of the Journey? Those puppies – with me (Connor…hi!) on vocals/drums and Jeff playing everything else – were only available on the Y2K version of MP3.com and basically only used to recruit other band members.
How do you follow up a concept album about a man losing his sanity and going on a killing rampage? Why, you write an album about drinking, suffering, and despair! At least that’s what Boys Night Out did with their third album on Ferret Records. The self-titled album follows up the band’s 2005 moderately successful concept album, Trainwreck, and it takes parts from that album and 2003’s Make Yourself Sick to piece together Boys Night Out. This album features the addition of guitarist Andy Lewis, the departure of Kara Dupuy, who played the synth and sang on Trainwreck, and the return of original drummer Ben Arseneau. What we find on these eleven Lou Giornado-produced tracks are intensity, catchiness, and repetition throughout.Read More “Boys Night Out – Boys Night Out”
