Surfacing from suburbia Indiana, pop-punk band Late Nite Reading is quickly climbing up the industry ladder and doesnât show signs of slowing down. After two EP releases and ready for a third, the band has done nothing but spread their name and tour non-stop throughout 2012 & 2013. For being a band just out of high school, they have already shared the stage with an impressive roster of bands such as All Time Low, Cartel, The Summer Set, and Taking Back Sunday.
Originating in the summer of 2009, bassist Brady Szuhaj and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Dalton Wixom joined together from a previous band to start something new. Â After a number of member changes during the beginning stages of the band, they now have a solid line up. Joining Wixom and Szuhaj is drummer Drew Cottrell and Clayton Collins on lead guitar to create Late Nite Reading.
Working with producers Shep Goodman & Aaron Accetta, the bandâs much anticipated third EP, Walls, was released on April 26th, 2013. âThis experience has been way different than any other writing experience I've ever had,â says Szuhaj, âWe wrote everything together, lyrics and melodies, the 4 of us really putting ourselves into the songs.â When asked about how the band came up with the title Walls, Szuhaj had a clear, yet compelling answer, âItâs all about breaking down the things that hold you backâ.
From fan favorite song âWhat You Went Throughâ and the latest single from the band âFrom the Startâ, the band is expeditiously improving their music with pop, dance, and feel-good vibes. âThere are elements of pop rock, punk rock, alternative rock, pop punk, ambient rock, and bubble gum popâ Szuhaj explains about the bands latest release.
The band is also known to be very personal with their fans. From doing meet and greets when they have days off, to private parties, to just taking the time to talk to fans whenever they have the chance. Fans describe the live shows as âfull of energy and feeling extremely personalâ. Whether itâs dual vocals or memorable covers of top hits, Late Nite Reading captures the attention of fans from many different genres. And their fans also mean everything to the band. âWithout them, I wouldnât have a reason to make music. Theyâre the only reason we do thisâ says Wixom in an interview. âWe just get to be ourselves and its awesomeâ.
