On the tour, frontman Chase Manhattan states:
“We’ve had the opportunity to play with some incredible bands and musicians we’ve looked up to at festivals like Warped Tour and SXSW, but this will be our first tour traveling as a supporting act, so we’re stoked to travel and share the stage with Social Repose, September Mourning, and Secret Tree Fort. We’re playing a lot of cities we haven’t had the chance to play before, and we can’t wait to meet some new fans, and play our new music for everyone.” – Chase Manhattan
NIGHT ARGENT is an alternative rock band hailing from Washington State. Their music combines infectious melodies with the high-energy live performance of an anthemic rock powerhouse. Praised for their energetic songwriting, pop-driven lyrics and multi-layered rock instrumentation, Night Argent have been making waves since the debut of their self-titled EP, released in Spring 2016. Comprised of four talented multi-instrumentalists, Chase Manhattan (lead vocals, guitar), Shane Santanna (keys, guitar, drums), Evan Taylor (bass), and Zac Burrell (drums), Night Argent pulls from a variety of genres to create a 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, which premiered 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.
