BRIGHT NIGHTS



BRIGHT NIGHTS began in 2006 as ELLO, an instrumental, studio-only recording project and much-needed distraction from other musical commitments for Eric Ackerman (bass/vocals) and Jon Pavelek (drums/vocals). After recruiting friends Nick Nealer (guitar/vocals) and Adam Jeanguenat (synth/guitar/vocals) along the way to add additional instrumentation to the recordings, the four decided in 2010 to have a go at arranging the songs for a live band.

They spent the long, cold winter of 2010 recording what would become their self-titled debut EP at Eric's cozy farmhouse studio, Audiomite, in Armada, Michigan. Still faced with the challenge of properly adapting the recorded material for live play, long-time friend Josh LaFalce (guitar) joined in 2011 to round out the lineup.

When a friend close to the band was asked to describe BRIGHT NIGHTS in a single sentence, he simply responded, "Nights aren't bright, you stupid asshole." Others described the band as "At the Drive-in without the talent, looks, or international following," and "the kind of band you can't dance to, get laid to, or even listen to."
