Toiling in the dusk and shadows since 2017, Child of Night are no strangers to grey areas; The dark corners subtly illuminated by the first hint of the rising sun. With this in mind, Child of Night present their first full-length release: “The Walls At Dawn.” The songs on the record address themes of transformation and illumination set against the backdrop of a collapsing empire.

Equal parts analog synthesizer exploration, noisy industrial dance beats, and swirling guitar-driven post-punk; C.O.N. seeks to have their sonic sensibilities firmly rooted in the traditions of their idols as well as carving their own unique path

The new album “The Walls at Dawn” will be out Sept 24th.
