MIDNIGHT Premiere New Track “Prowling Leather”; Announce New Tour Dates


Metalpunk masters MIDNIGHT premiere the new track “Prowling Leather” on Metal Hammer Norway’s website. The track hails from MIDNIGHT’s massively anticipated new album, No Mercy for Mayhem, set for international release on August 19th via HELLS HEADBANGERS. Hotter than Hell in the metal/punk underworld, MIDNIGHT’s debut album, Satanic Royalty, became an instant classic upon its release in 2011. Now, with anticipation at a fever pitch, the hooded demons return with the even better No Mercy for Mayhem. Whereas Satanic Royalty was the culmination of nearly a decade’s worth of hard slogging in the underground, No Mercy for Mayhem is an intensification of everything its predecessor seemingly perfected: the hooks even more anthemic, the power more piledriving, the dirt dirtier, the sum effect being absolute BLACKOUT. Really, there’s no current band who are able to mainline classic heavy metal, hard-charging punk rock, and grimy rock ‘n’ roll quite like MIDNIGHT can, and No Mercy for Mayhem is studded-leather, 10-track proof that mainman Athenar and crew are at the top of their game and bow to no one. Hear for yourself what all the buzz is about exclusively HERE, courtesy of Norway’s leading metal authority.
