Swedish classic/progressive rock supergroup THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA (featuring members of SOILWORK and ARCH ENEMY) have released a message from outer space.
Space Commanders Jon Zazula (who discovered bands like METALLICA, ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, OVERKILL) and Danko Jones have listened to the band’s forthcoming third studio album, Amber Galactic, thoroughly and submitted the following statements from the NFO spaceship:
Amber Galactic is scheduled to be released on May 19, 2017 via Nuclear Blast and will be available as limited edition digipak CD featuring an alternate cover art (see at bottom of this message), 2LP vinyl (black and violet sparkle) and as digital download and stream via all known platforms.
The tracklist for Amber Galactic reads as follows:
01. Midnight Flyer
02. Star Of Rio
04. Sad State Of Affairs
08. Space Whisperer
09. Something Mysterious
10. Saturn In Velvet
11. Just Another Night BONUS TRACK (limited edition digipak, vinyl)
12. Fly Tonight (Never Rewind) BONUS TRACK (Japan only)
When asked about the direction of NFO within the realm of classic rock, Strid explains with a chuckle: “Most other classic rock bands sound like weed or LSD – we sound like cocaine.”
Amber Galactic was recorded at Handsome Hard Studio in Lund, Sweden. The album follows THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA’s two previous releases, 2012’s Internal Affairs and 2015’s Skyline Whispers.
Stay tuned for more coming soon in the world of THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA!
