Boys Night Out

Formed in 1998, Boy Night Out disbanded after their first show only to be rebuilt three years later. Based around a core lineup of guitarist Jeff Davis and singer Connor Lovat-Fraser, Boys Night Out first carved out their territory in 2002 with their debut EP, Broken Bones And Bloody Kisses. Released on the U.S. hardcore label One Day Savior, the disc showcased BNO's flair for combining the melodic with the morbid (via Lovat-Fraser's wry, sadistic lyrics), winning over fans with its singing-screaming balance well before "screamo" had become a music-industry buzzword.

Formed in 1998, Boy Night Out disbanded after their first show only to be rebuilt three years later. Based around a core lineup of guitarist Jeff Davis and singer Connor Lovat-Fraser, Boys Night Out first carved out their territory in 2002 with their debut EP, Broken Bones And Bloody Kisses. Released on the U.S. hardcore label One Day Savior, the disc showcased BNO's flair for combining the melodic with the morbid (via Lovat-Fraser's wry, sadistic lyrics), winning over fans with its singing-screaming balance well before "screamo" had become a music-industry buzzword. U.S. touring followed; and, by the time they were ready to record their Ferret Music debut, Make Yourself Sick, BNO had gotten their first taste of fame outside of their home country, but, as the old cliche goes, they hadn't seen anything yet. Though it was recorded on a shoestring budget, Make Yourself Sick was nonetheless a massive-sounding debut album. As typified by the single "I Got Punched In The Nose For Sticking My Face In Other People's Business", the disc was a progressive pop-punk romp, packed with hand claps, sing-along choruses and harmonized riffs. But, in typical BNO fashion, Make Yourself Sick's polished outer surface was also the Trojan horse through which the band sneaked their lyrical dark side. What fans didn't realize, however, was that the same sort of light-dark combination that was earning BNO their rep was also making the band painfully aware of their own place in the underground. "Machine" used the analogy of being stuck inside the fishbowl: Before now, they were our songs, and we recorded them, and that was it," Davis says. "So in that respect it was hard, giving up our babies; but with songs like these, when you're trying to fit everything you want to listen to into the space of one record, having an outside perspective really pushes you harder to make it work." « hide
