Hailing from Washington State the band consists of 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 Management 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, The Fear, which was produced by the band and co-written by John Feldmann, in July 2017 via Outerloop Records.
‘Night Argent’ continues to out do themselves with every release. ‘The Fear’ brings with it an impassioned and heart felt sound with their mix of rock and pop that creates a sound that they can all entitle their own.
This is a high energy release with infectious melodies making for a release that you can’t help but hit that replay button. If this record with its huge landscape sound doesn’t get you singing at the top of your lungs, I’m not sure what will!
Night Argent are a must listen to band!
