The Districts share rollicking new single “Nighttime Girls”: Stream

on February 21, 2018, 12:26pm

Pennsylvania rockers The Districts served up their sophomore LP Popular Manipulations last summer and spent the fall touring in support of it. Now, after a short break, the band is setting off on another massive tour of North America and Europe, this time with Chicago indie stalwart Twin Peaks along for the ride.

Along with the tour announcement, The Districts have shared a brand new single, “Nighttime Girls”, a bobbing, raucous ode to youthful ennui. “I go out in the nighttime and feel a hole in my heart,” frontman Rob Grote sings against shuddering walls of distortion. In a statement, Grote describes the song as being “about the allure of escapism and a character’s general preoccupation with shallowness and neon light.” Listen to it below.

“Nighttime Girls” is available via a 7-inch single that also includes another new song, “Soft Auxiliary”. It’s out on March 9th, and you can pre-order it now on Bandcamp. See the single’s artwork, as well as the band’s 2018 tour dates, below.
