Critically acclaimed rockers Unquiet Nights unveil their stadium-sized second album "Postcards In Real Time".

On December 11, Belfast-founded, Italian-based band Unquiet Nights capped off a break-out year in style with the release of their second LP 'Postcards In Real Time.'  Produced by the group's singer/guitarist Luke Mathers and mixed and mastered by Neal Calderwood (previous credits include the Answer, Fighting With Wire and General Fiasco) the 11 track opus includes successful singles 'Constellations Of She/'George Best City,' (a release which gained the band significant airplay on Sky Television and saw them perform multiple times live on Italian TV) and last summer's synth-swathed anthem "Love Leave Your Mark On Me".

A record rich in textures and ideas, "Postcards In Real Time" expands upon the sound of their debut "21st Century Redemption Songs" while exploring new fields, yielding their most passionate, personal and, at times, politicised work to date.

Tackling topical subjects such as the downfall of the economy and the perils of relying on banks ('Jefferson Was Right') as well as unflinchingly dealing with Mathers' own recollections of growing up during the Troubles ('Age Of No Innocence,' 'Don't Wanna Kill For Religion,') 'Postcards In Real Time' sees the band on a huge creative high and at the peak of their powers.

BIO Italiano 2015

“So catchy.  Pure Rock & Roll.” (1)
 – Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1.

Unquiet Nights sono il gruppo del cantautore Nord Irlandese Luke Mathers.  Formatosi in Belfast si sono poi rilocati in Europa, hanno ottenuto molti passaggi radiofonici in tutto il mondo, supportando artisti che hanno venduto milioni di dischi, registrando con Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, realizzato un album e suonando in nove nazioni in tour.

Il loro suono chitarra orientato è stato paragonato da The Wallflowers' Greg Richling ai Nirvana e Bloc Party, con il magazine Irlandese Hotpress sono stati disegnati paralleli con Pink Floyd e Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. (2)

Il gruppo è sono meglio conosciuti in Italia per la canzone "George Best City", che è stato trasmesso più di 150 volte by SKY Italia durante la scena finale del documentario Federico Buffa Racconta: George Best.  Questo ha permesso alla band di esibirsi con la canzone al Roxy Bar TV c/ Red Ronnie a Bologna, ed apparire su SKY Calciomercato con Alessandro Bonan e Gianluca di Marzio.

Il fascino per le canzoni e le chitarre per Mathers iniziò nei primi anni 90 in un particolare clima turbolente prima del cessate il fuoco nell'Irlanda del Nord, collezionando cassette di Roy Orbison per poi iniziare una prima formazione nei primi anni 2000. Dopo che la band si sciolse nel 2005 seguita da un discreto successo, Mathers decide di focalizzarsi unitamente nel suo songwriting. Stabilendo il nome Unquiet Nights durante il 2006, parzialmente in referenza ad un traccia oscura dei Genesis, iniziò così a registrare e a suonare concerti acustici “solo”.

Andando avanti all'estate 2010 a Belfast, dove i primi demo dell'abum di debutto "21st Century Redemption Songs" vennero registrati sopra al famoso club “Limelight” di Belfast. Una volta trasferitosi in Italia l'album sarà finito e poi inviato per il mixing finale a Neal Calderwood (The Answer / Fighting With Wire), continuando ad avere radio play per le più importanti stazioni radiofoniche (BBC Radio 1, Absolute, 6 Music, Amazing, RTE 2FM & Radio Popolare) lanciando così il primo singolo "Shoulda Said Something".

I tours sono continuati attraverso questo periodo, vedendo il gruppo suonare come support per bands come Bloc Party (Scala, London) e Toploader, suonando inoltre per i loro shows in alcuni dei piu importanti clubs in città come Amsterdam, Dublin, Munich, Salzburg, Bratislava, Rome, Innsbruck, Toronto e la loro città natale di Belfast. Dopo aver ottenuto una favorevole copertura nella stampa musicale come Under The Radar e Hotpress, sono seguite apparizioni come soundtrack per programmi su ESPN e Allisports, Balcony TV Dublin e numerose radio sessions attorno al mondo.

Il secondo album è correntemente in produzione e avrà in se contributi di grandi musicisti come Steve Ferrone dei Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, inoltre il gruppo avrà il primo video musicale, girato sul tetto dell' Europa Hotel di Belfast, famoso per essere “l'hotel più bombardato al mondo”.
Unquiet Nights sempre sono stati e sempre saranno “about the songs”.
 

“Rock Indie davvero molto pulito che troverà i suoi seguaci. Molto interessante, molto attuale come suono, perché, alla fine, e’ sempre attuale il rock ‘n’roll leggermente vintage..”
- Tommaso Toma (GQ, Maxim, Rolling Stone Italia, Radio Popolare)

“Attenzione perche’ questi vale la pena ascoltarli.  Riferimenti americani, ma una grande anima british al loro interno.  Grande carica, grande esuberanza ci piacciono assai.”
- Impaziente Inglese (Radio Popolare)

Parole di Edwin McFee (Hot Press).

UNQUIET NIGHTS - Rock, Blues, Alternative (BELFAST UK)

UNQUIET NIGHTS are a Rock band formed in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Since releasing debut album "21st Century Redemption Songs" in 2012, the band have toured in nine countries, supporting acts as diverse as Bloc Party, Toploader & Alabama 3, while continuing to gain national coverage from the BBC, SKY and many radio stations.

In 2015 the band have released the double A-side single "Constellations of She" // "George Best City".

"Constellations of She" is a psychedelic rock jam featuring Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers drummer Steve Ferrone.  "George Best City" has a sound more reminiscent of Irish folk and was immediately picked up by SKY Italia to sound track their Federico Buffa Racconta: George Best documentary, which has been broadcast over 140 times nationally in Italy so far in 2015.  This release also helped Unquiet Nights break further ground on national radio in the UK, including the support of key programs on the BBC.  Some other coverage has been less conventional, with "George Best City" being published in German literature.

The band are currently recording the follow-up to "21st Century Redemption Songs" which is expected to see release in December 2015.
