Nightmares For A Week Announce Northeast Tour Dates in Support of New Album, "Don't Die," Out Now on Academy Fight Song

While the Get Up Kids have reunited to offer up a new full-length early next year, it's highly unlikely a follow-up to Jawbreaker's Dear You will ever materialize. Kingston, New York's Nightmares For A Week try to soften that everlasting blow of uncertainty with their well-crafted debut LP, Don't Die. - Alternative Press

The New York trio packs its debut album with chiseled, sinewy pop-punk that’s unafraid to rip out its guts and fly them up the flagpole. - The Onion AV Club

The beautifully packaged disc takes the tight-knit three piece’s ragged songs about friendship, good/bad times and weathering heartbreak to the next level. - AMP

There isn't one boring moment on the entire album... it has some of the catchiest songs I have ever heard. A much needed sound in music right now and I'm super happy to call it one of my favorites for 2010. - Bloody Disgusting

It all started out with a couple cases of beer, a back porch, and a few old friends. In the hot, muggy summer of 2008, longtime friends and former band mates Sean-Paul Pillsworth and Bill Manley decided it was time to pick up their dusty guitars and start writing music together again. It wasn't long until they recruited ex-Astronauts drummer Steve Markota, and the resulting chemistry was undeniable.

The trio played a packed hometown show, and in months they were traveling far from their native Kingston, NY, playing nearly every weekend. They kept getting called back, each time with bigger and more enthusiastic performances to match the crowds. A year went by so fast. They released their debut EP, A Flood Tomorrow, produced by studio pro John Naclerio (My Chemical Romance, Senses Fail, Polar Bear Club) at Nada Studios in New Windsor, NY. After releasing the CD on friend-run imprint Music for End Times, Naclerio signed the band to his own Broken English record label for digital distribution.

In June of 2010 the band reentered Nada Studios as free agents to record their full-length debut. In addition to a brand new album, the band also came out of the studio with a brand new label, Brooklyn-based Academy Fight Song. Their full-length entitled “Don’t Die” is out now. Nightmares for a Week will be touring the country in support of the new album, full US tour dates coming soon.
