Midnight Cinema Announces Self-Titled EP, 7/9 + FREE SONG

NEW YORK, NY (May 31, 2013) – If the names Clayton Stroope (Vocals), Drew Cribley (Guitar) and Paul Niedermier (Drums)  sound familiar, it’s because you’ve heard them before.  The Bay Area band Midnight Cinema is a reincarnation of sorts of the Gold selling band Thriving Ivory and will release their self-titled debut EP on July 9, 2013.

All of the songs on the five-track EP cover the spectrum of the ins and outs of relationships, love and life (track listing below).  And beginning today, you can get a free track “Hurricane” from their upcoming EP on Midnight Cinema’s website.

After having huge success with Thriving Ivory and following their self-titled Wind-up Records debut album on June 24, 2008 - the album reached #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart on the strength of certified Gold single "Angels on the Moon,” selling over 500,000 copies; they were also chosen by VH1 as a “You Oughta Know” artist, and their second studio album, Through Yourself & Back Again which was released on September 14, 2010.

Their relentless touring schedule took a toll on the band and while on the road in support of Through Yourself & Back Again, personal issues arose and founding member Scott Jason decided to part ways with the band.  The remaining three band members continued with the tour. It was during a stop in New York when Clayton, Drew and Paul met with Gregg Wattenberg and Derek Fuhrmann for a writing session.  Subsequent sessions followed; they felt they something special immediately starting to build and with this new burst of adrenaline and creativity, Midnight Cinema was born.

Midnight Cinema will make their debut with a special performance at Café Du Nord in San Francisco on July 23, 2013.

Track Listing For Midnight Cinema EP:

  1. Crazy Beautiful
