Its been a while since I’ve posted about Toronto band Nightbox and their killer track “Burning”. Last March, I heard the track for the first time and now we’ve got a video for the song, plus news about their upcoming EP The Panic Sequence (out April 22 via Toronto-based Rare Beef). The five-track EP is the follow-up to the band’s self-titled debut, which they’ll support with North America tourdates this spring.
Looks like I’ll be running some more contests on the blog in the coming weeks, as Live Nation has a slew of great shows coming up in Toronto. For instance, got plans on Wednesday, May 29th? I would hope you’d be heading to the Rivoli to see Nightbox, who are gearing up to their 2013 debut album. Head to their website to see previews of the album and put “Burning” back on your long-weekend playlist. Oh, and enter this contest to get in.

Courtesy of Live Nation, I’ve got one pair of tickets to give away for the show. There are two ways to enter. Either email me at chris AT indiemusicfilter.com with “NIGHTBOX” in the subject line with your full name in the body.
Or, RT my tweet about the contest. Each way enters your name into the draw. Also, this is a 19+ show.Deadline is Tuesday, May 28th at noon (EST). I’ll notify the winner that day.
Loving the new music I’m hearing from Toronto band Nightbox (via Neon Gold yesterday), the first single “Burning” off their debut album (set for release later this year). The track was produced by MSTRKRFT‘s Al-P and Sebastien Grainger and comes to you both in soundcloud and video form below. Band to watch in 2013 no doubt.
Check it out.
Here’s the video.
You should always listening to your friends. If I had, I would have posted about this band months ago. So here I am, standing on the dock, having missed the boat on The Whitest Boy Alive.
A group based in Berlin, originally starting in 2003 as an electronic music project relying on samples, now a four-piece band with no programmed elements. They released their first full length (Dreams) in mid 2006.
Put this minimal pop stuff on a mixtape with Peter, Bjorn and John and Fujiya and Miyagi.? (***I realize that last sentence looks like I listed 5 international dudes, but its just two bands***).
