Diet Cig are back! Today the critically-acclaimed duo of Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums) return with a new song “Night Terrors” – their first bit of music since 2017 when they released their debut album Swear I’m Good At This. Of “Night Terrors” Alex notes, “This song centers around my very real and frequent experiences with night terrors and other bizarre sleep activity. If we’re close enough to have ever shared a room, you know what I’m talking about. This song goes out to you.
The idea of night terrors also represents the fact that no matter how hard I try to curate a specific and perfect version of myself, the embarrassing, weird, unlikable parts are always going to be there too. The people I’m closest with will always end up seeing them, when they inevitably come hurling out of me like my night terrors in the middle of the night. This song’s about holding onto that hope that the real ones will like me even with all my weird freaky stuff underneath. Even when I’m screaming at them in my sleep from across the hotel room.”
Diet Cig have also announced a North American and UK tour that kicks off May 2 in Bristol, UK. The dates conclude June 6 in Charlottesville, VA and along the way Diet Cig will play Brooklyn’s Music Hall Of Williamsburg on May 16 and Lincoln Hall in Chicago on May 27. All dates are listed below and tickets go on-sale on Friday, January 31, 2020 @ 10AM local time.
