Band of the Day

Nightbox

Radiant, sunlit sounds for rooftop pool parties and summertime antics
You've got the light to illuminate my bones. And this time you won't have to be there on your own.
lyrics from Burning

Mixed by Grammy-Award winning engineer Gus Oberg (The Strokes, The Virgins, Drowners, Albert Hammond Jr.) and produced by Nightbox themselves, with co-production from Al-P of MSTRKRFT and co-writing from Sebastien Grainger of DFA 1979 on the lead single “Burning,” The Panic Sequence EP is the next progression for a rising band rooted in charmingly humble beginnings.

With their self-titled debut EP on Last Gang Records, Nightbox caught the ears of the BBC, which ranked their performance in the top-10 of that year’s Electric Picnic Festival. Over the next couple years, support slots on both sides of the Atlantic for Ellie Goulding, Cults and DFA 1979 followed, along with international tours with LIGHTS, Dragonette, and most recently Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. As did critical praise from UK press NME, Dazed & Confused, BBC Radio 1, Canadian media and a slew of top blogs like Neon Gold and Kick Kick Snare.

Now with The Panic Sequence, Nightbox are ready to step out from the shadow of their influences and leave their own musical imprint on Toronto and the wider world.
