Mighty Music proudly announces the signing of NIGHTHAWK. The Swedish band started out as a solo project by Robert Majd (bass player in Metalite & Captain Black Beard), with the idea of just having some fun, playing guitar, and writing some energetic rock´n´roll. The debut album featured a bunch of different singers. After that first album release in the summer of 2021, Robert got an itch to do more.
However, this time the stakes would be higher. With the world-famous Abbey Road Studios booked, a band and, a collection of songs, and a label needed to match the caliber of the studio. Björn Strid (NFO, Soilwork & Donna Cannone) joined on lead vocals, Magnus Ulfstedt (Ginevra) on drums, John Lönnmyr (The Night Flight Orchestra) on keyboards and Christan Ek (Captain Black Beard) on bass. Nine original tunes together with two covers were recorded live in the studio in just two days. And the deal was set with Mighty Music for its release.
“An album I made just for the fun experience of doing it, working with new people and trying something different, turned out great!”, Rob Majd says. “The fact that the good people at Mighty Music want to release it is a great testament to that and makes me even more proud of this project. Can’t wait to let people hear these songs!”.
Nighthawk’s sophomore album will be released in the first half of 2023.
