6/22/2013

  • Blabbermouth reports THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA — the new classic-rock band featuring Björn Strid (SOILWORK) and Sharlee D' Angelo (ARCH ENEMY, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS) — will make its live debut on August 1 at Dina-scenen in Lidköping, Sweden. Support at the ggi will come from OUTSHINE and EGONAUTTHE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA's debut album, "Internal Affairs", was released in June 2012 via Coroner Records.
    "Internal Affairs" track listing:
    01. Siberian Queen 02. California Morning 03. Glowing City Madness 04. West Ruth Ave 05. Transatlantic Blues 06. Miami 5:02 07. Internal Affairs 08. 1998 09. Stella Ain't No Dove 10. Montreal Midnight Supply 11. Green Hills Of Glumslöv 12. American High (digipak bonus track)
    THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA started like so many others as an innocent yet serious drunken idea when Strid and David Andersson (MEAN STREAK, session musician for SOILWORK) were on the road together somewhere in North America in 2007. Björn and David were bonding over what they considered "classic" or not, from rock and roll conspiracies to being arrested in a lobby with nothing but leather pants on. All those scenarios, fictional or real, needed a soundtrack. They also came to think that whether you're on a metal tour or not, a lot of classic rock songs say it all and can really lend you a helping hand and make you forget about everything, especially when in motion or travelling. The classic escape. The never-ending road trip. The transatlantic night flight. It may sound simple and naive, but what it all comes down to is that we all need that soundtrack to feel extra special, whether you have been arrested in a lobby or not.  It didn't take long before bass player D' Angelo joined forces as well as keyboard player Richard Larsson (VON BENZO) and drummer Jonas Källsbäck (MEAN STREAK). The goal was to reclaim the '70s/early '80s sense for classic melody, the forgotten recipe to a timeless song, preferably a song mentioning a city, street name or an exhilarating alcoholic beverage. Anything that will have you spitting out the word "classic." From "Tarot Woman" to "Badlands", from "Rhiannon" to "Running on Empty", from "Blind Man" to "Night Moves", from "Deuce" to "Separate Ways", from "Elected" to "Set me Free". The list goes on. It's all about reclaiming the "classic."
