WATCH NIGHT ARGENT COVER JON BELLION’S “GUILLOTINE” IN LIVE STUDIO VIDEO

 

Praised for their dynamic songwriting, pop-driven lyrics and multi-layered rock instrumentation, alternative pop/rock band Night Argent have been making waves since the debut of their self-titled EP, released in Spring 2016. Since then, the band has been busy in the studio gearing up for a follow-up EP release (to be announced soon), working diligently behind the scenes to the anticipation of fans everywhere. Also known for their flawless cover renditions of songs like Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive,” Katy Perry’s “Legendary Lovers,” and Elliphant’s “Revolusion,” fans are constantly asking the band to cover their favorite songs. Today, Night Argent unveiled an intoxicating cover of Jon Bellion’s hit single, “Guillotine,” shot in just one take from their hometown studio which can be viewed here. The video shows Night Argent in their rawest form, with bassist Evan Taylor laying it down on both bass and guitar at the same time, and emphasizes the band’s vocal harmonies. On the video, and more to come, Chase Manhattan states:

 

“As a band we have a very clear picture of what our sound is, the direction it’s headed, and the type of original music we want to make. Especially now that we’ve wrapped up recording our 2nd EP together. But as individual musicians we have a very wide and eclectic taste in music and artists, which is something we don’t always get to share with the fans of our music. We decided, as a way to share some of our favorite artists and songs with our fans, to start recording our own broken down versions of songs we typically wouldn’t play in our live show. Not only is it an exciting way for us to push ourselves to explore new things musically, but it’s a way for us to connect with the people who support us and listen to our music, in a new way.”  – Chase Manhattan

 

NIGHT ARGENT is an alternative pop/rock band hailing from Washington State. Their music combines flawless musicality and infectious pop melodies with the high-energy live performance of an anthemic rock powerhouse. Chase Manhattan (lead vocals, guitar), Shane Santanna (keys, guitar, drums), Evan Taylor (bass), and Zac Burrell (drums) are four multi-instrumentalists who give Night Argent their dynamic, breakthrough sound. In 2015 Night Argent won the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands landing them a stint on the  Vans Warped Tour and a writing/recording deal with John Feldmann (Blink 182, Panic! At The Disco, 5 Seconds of Summer). The band shortly after penned a management deal with Outerloop Group and released their debut self-titled EP in April 2016, debuting the EP in partnership with FUSE. This dynamic do-it-yourself band has focused the majority of their time in their hometown studio and performance venue on Argent Road (The Scarlet Room at Rainmaker Studios) creating music that not only bridges the gap between artist and fan, but provides them the musical freedom on stage to give audiences an experience they’ll never forget. Off the stage, Night Argent is best known for their brilliant creativity, as shown in their cinematic self-produced music videos for tracks such as “Nothing More Beautiful,” “Widowmaker,” and their take on a holiday classic, “Cold (Carol of the Bells).” Night Argent has played at festivals such as Warped Tour (2015, 2016), SXSW (2015, 2016) and Gentlemen of the Road (2016), and shared the stage with bands such as Imagine Dragons, Andy Grammar, X Ambassadors, and more. Night Argent is set to release their sophomore EP, which was produced by the band and co-written by John Feldmann in Spring 2017. Details to be announced soon.
