About The Night Flight Orchestra
The Night Flight Orchestra is a Swedish hard rock band from Helsingborg. They are signed to Nuclear Blast Records. Formed in 2007 by Björn Strid and David Andersson while they were touring in the USA with their band Soilwork, they were later joined by bassist Sharlee D’Angelo (Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars, ex-King Diamond), Richard Larsson (Von Benzo), Jonas Källsbäck (Mean Streak) and, more recently, Sebastian Forslund (Kadwatha). After releasing Internal Affairs in 2012 and _Skyline Whispers- in 2015, The Night Flight Orchestra entered Handsome Hard Studio in Spring 2016 to record their third album, Amber Galactic. It was released through Nuclear Blast Records in May 2017.
Less than one week after the release of Amber Galactic, singer Björn Strid stated in an interview that The Night Flight Orchestra were likely to start recording their fourth album a couple months later, during Summer 2017, to be released in Spring 2018.
The Night Flight Orchestra did their first European tour as a headline show in late 2017. On the 15th of December 2017, The Night Flight Orchestra have been nominated for a Swedish Grammy Award in the category Best Rock/Metal for their globally acclaimed album, Amber Galactic.
