We've got our own stock of physical copies of 21st Century Redemption Songs now, so you can order from our Paypal, or Bandcamp store for £8 + P&P.  They come with a booklet, liner notes & the same 10 songs as the digital version.

 

Also wanted to thank everyone who has bought the album in either format, it's selling well so far.  Some of you are immortalised in our Hall of Faces (on FB).  If you've got a photo, send it to us.

"If I Could & You Ever Would" appeared in another sync by Allisports, this time a feature on snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg.  They had already used "We Were The Ones" and "Shoulda Said Something" for features in 2011.  Gotta try this snowboarding thing.  See what you think here...

"If I Could & You Ever Would" was used as the soundtrack to issue #42 of the NY blog Storychord, which combines a story, a picture and a song.

Did an interview with Joe Mayo of Uncharted Music News recently, where he asked a bit about how the album was recorded and what it sounds like.  He's written it up as an article, which you can read here.

When we were played on Absolute Radio at the end of 2011, some of the DJs from universities in the Student Radio Association reviewed "Burning The Tracks". Here's a pick of the reviews that have surfaced.

 

"Potentially the best rock n roll band I've heard all year"
-  Anishka Sharma | University of Warwick Radio

"I love this song and would happily repeat on my iPod again and again."
- Laura Cockram | Lancaster University Radio

"I think Unquiet Nights are set for big things.”
– Lucy Markillie | Shock Radio

After playing "Burning The Tracks" recently on his Absolute Radio show, Pete Donaldson has also reviewed "Someone's Love on Drugs", saying it's: "A great rock track. Moody, but not one that revels in it - there's a sense of urgency in there. Bit of a journey, all told."  Thanks Pete.  (link)

Blind Carrot Magazine included us in their Best Albums of 2011, along with some great albums I've been listening to (Horrible Crowes - "Elsie", and "El Camino" - The Black Keys).  Also it was satisfying to pass 40,000 plays on Soundcloud this month, and 82,000 on Last.fm.  Keep it going.

 

You can download some of the songs from unquietnights.com/music, but if you do that as opposed to buying the album, atleast join the mailing list, our facebook page, or twitter to stay up to date.  All the best...
