Las Vegas Alternative/Dark Rock Outfit THE NOCTURNAL AFFAIR Release New Single “Down” via Earache Records


The Nocturnal Affair is the alternative/dark rock project headed by singer/songwriter Brendan Shane. The band’s crushing and melancholic musical style is an ode to darker alternative music torchbearers like Type O Negative, HIM, David Bowie, Gary Numan, and Nine Inch Nails. They capture a uniquely haunting sound steeped in downtrodden melodies enveloped in the darkness behind the glow of the Las Vegas lights where Brendan has called home.


Their new single “Down” marks the first official release via Earache Records, one of the longest running and most well known rock and metal record labels in the world. “Down” is from the band’s upcoming debut album (META)MORPHOSIS (set to come out early 2022), which was produced by John Moyer (Disturbed) and mixed and mastered by Logan Mader (Machine Head, Once Human) who also contributed to some of the songwriting and production.


The group has performed alongside a wide array of artists from heavy metal heavyweights like HELLYEAH, Asking Alexandria, and Pop Evil, as well as Industrial rockers My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult. The band has toured with the vampiric act The 69 Eyes while also being accessible enough to share the stage with notable mainstream acts like 3 Doors Down and Black Stone Cherry.


The Nocturnal Affair was recently invited to perform on Chris Jericho’s Rock ‘N’ Wrestling Rager at Sea Cruise, which sailed from Miami to Grand Bahama Island October 21-25, 2021. This was the band’s first live performance since the Covid-19 pandemic hit last year.


The Nocturnal Affair is managed by veteran artist manager, John Gomez, and co-managed by famed MTV VJ personality Matt Pinfield, and represented by TKO Booking Agency.
