THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA Premiere Brand New Song “Midnight Flyer”


New Album, Amber Galactic, Available for Pre-Order Beginning Today
Out May 19, 2017 via Nuclear Blast
Swedish classic/progressive rock supergroup THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA – featuring members of metal frontrunners Soilwork and Arch Enemy – have released the first single off of their forthcoming third studio album, Amber Galactic.

Comments singer Björn Strid: “‘Midnight Flyer’ might be the ultimate THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA track, and all the emotions that we think a classic rock track should convey are there. When you find yourself on a night flight across the oceans, you’ve just left everything you love behind and once you land you know that nothing will ever be the same. You’ve got nothing left to lose, and you just want to escape reality, no matter the cost. A melancholic over the top party anthem, about the deep personal insights you can only get at 36,000 ft. with a stiff drink in your trembling hands, and the mysterious beauty that you hope will be there waiting for you when you arrive.”
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, 2LP vinyl (black and violet sparkle, see below) and as digital download and stream via all known platforms.

THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA Reveal “Amber Galactic” Album Covers, Track Listing & Formats


Swedish classic/progressive rock supergroup THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA – featuring members of metal frontrunners Soilwork and Arch Enemy – have revealed the album cover artworks for their forthcoming third studio album, Amber Galactic, which is scheduled to be released on May 19, 2017 via Nuclear Blast. See the standard album cover above.
Singer Björn Strid states: “Amber Galactic” is a relationship drama set in space, the first classic rock space opera on double vinyl. As seasoned musicians, we’re taking this project seriously, although we might come across as slightly retrofuturistic at times, there’s no irony involved. It’s just us trying to shape our future into a place where our race is led by female space commanders with pearl necklaces and a quasar sense of gravity. “Amber Galactic” is about setting free from genre boundaries and expectations that are put on people like us. We just want to create music that we would like to hear ourselves, but that isn’t only for us.

 

THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA is here to set you free, to invite you to enjoy music in whatever form it is presented. For this particular journey, we’d like you to follow us into space, but who knows where we’ll go next! After entering the NFO universe, you won’t ever be the same!”

 

Amber Galactic will be available as a limited edition digipak CD featuring an alternate cover art (see below), 2LP vinyl (black and violet sparkle) and as digital download and stream via all known platforms.

THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA Announce New Studio Album’s Title and Release Date

Swedish classic/progressive rock supergroup THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA – featuring members of metal frontrunners Soilwork and Arch Enemy – have announced the title of their upcoming record. The band’s third studio album will be entitled Amber Galactic and is scheduled to be released on May 19, 2017 via Nuclear Blast.

Commented singer Björn Strid“‘Amber Galactic was made during late nights and way too early mornings, when sometimes, in the corner of your eye, you can catch a glimpse of another dimension, where all the women are heartbroken space commanders in evening gowns, the champagne is always free and the drugs won’t hurt you. We wanted to create more than just a listening experience, instead we want it to be an alternative reality. We hope that after listening to Amber Galactic, you’ll be wide-eyed, horny and slightly drunk.”

Guitarist David Andersson adds: “Musicianship in itself is not interesting, neither are the technical aspects of creating music. The ideas and visions behind the music are the only things really worthy of in-depth discussions. We’ve all reached a point where we can all pretty much play and sing whatever we want. We didn’t talk much about chord changes or amplifiers during the recording sessions. But we spent a lot of time discussing Kierkegaard’s concept of anxiety, different vintages of sparkling wine, the psychoacoustic aspects of modulation, the innate superiority of women and why a pearl necklace always look better when whoever wears it has a bored expression on her face.”

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.
