Vancouver-based pop-punk band Needles//Pins is back from a three-year hiatus with their third full-length offering, Good Night, Tomorrow.

The trio, made up of guitarist/vocalist Adam Solomonian, bassist Tony Dubroy and drummer Macey Budgell, released a couple of 7" singles and a cassette before putting out 12:34, its first full-length album, in 2012. Since then the band, with its high-energy sets and Solomonian’s signature growly vocals, has been a fixture on the live scene in Vancouver.

Lyrically, the songs on Good Night, Tomorrow are a chronicle of Solomonian’s life in the city, full of references to coping with boredom, never-ending rain and, most of all, his chronic battle against insomnia.

“I think it's just an environmental thing. It's just such a good description for a lot of things that have to do with Vancouver, " he told ION magazine. "That whole record is about my insomnia.... One of the things that often happens when you lie awake is that you listen to the rain."

Last week, the trio shared a video for the album’s second single, “Miracle.” Its concept, as conceived by the band, is about three friends “in dire straits, ready to go down with the ship. Ending on their terms, playing music and taking military-grade psychedelics."

According to the band, the shoot itself was quite an ordeal.

"We turned our jam space into a bomb shelter and shot this in two 14-hour days,” said Dubroy via press release. “It was hell."

Good Night, Tomorrow comes out on June 30 and is available for pre-order here. See their tour dates here.
