Earlier today AbsolutePunk posted the track listing and release date for Nightmares For A Week‘s forthcoming debut album. In light of this news, Nightmares For A Week’s Don’t Die was erased from the “Awaiting Release” section of aKt’s Release Calendar and penciled into the brand spankin’ new “2010 > December” sector!
Earlier this year NFAW was named one of Alternative Press Magazine’s “Bands You Need To Know in 2010.”
Frank McGinnis (formerly of Frankie and his Fingers, now By Land Or Sea) performed keyboards and James Felice (of the Felice Brothers) performed accordion on the album. Walter Schreifels (Rival Schools, Quicksand, Gorilla Biscuits) also made a guest appearance on Don’t Die. It was recorded by John Naclerio at Nada Recording Studio (Anadivine, Armor For Sleep, AutoPilot Off, Bayside, Bedlight For Blue Eyes, Brand New, The Dear Hunter, Drift Division, Jerk Magnet, Joshua, Just Surrender, Madina Lake, Matchbook Romance, Midtown, My Chemical Romance, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, Polar Bear Club, Senses Fail, These Green Eyes and most recently The Receiving End of Sirens have also recorded at Nada).
