New guitarist for Night Birds

Brooklyn, NY's Night Birds, who released The Other Side of Darkness in 2011, have announced that guitarist Mike Hunchback is leaving the group this January, playing his final show for the band on January 12. Singer Brian Gorsegner explains:

The band has become a fairly time-consuming commitment, and with the other three of us really pushing and wanting to do even more, Mike just wasn't able to divert enough time from his new record store and his more recent writing projects. With the best intentions of both the band and himself in mind, he has made the decision to part ways with Night Birds. After three years, we are obviously bummed to see him go, but we are all still on perfectly good terms and there is no bad blood. In fact, Mike will remain in the band, along side our new guitar player, to write our second full length LP this Winter, with hopes of recording in early Spring.

PJ Russo (Phibes) has been announced as Hunchback's replacement, and he will play his first Night Birds show on February 4. The band promises a 2012 tour, with a few dates listed below in the New York region.

1/12: Brooklyn, NY @ Lulu's w/ Night Birds, Livids (ex New Bomb Turks), Foster Care, Pampers, Nuclear Santa Claust

2/4: Brooklyn, NY @ Acheron (57 Waterbury St.) w/ Kim Phuc

2/17: Amnittyville, NY @ Ollie's Place w/ World Inferno Friendship Society, Mischief Brew, Night Birds
