FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Marquette, MI October 26, 2009) Michigan based, international hard rock act NightStrike has gone on indefinite hiatus, effective immediately. All recording, performing and promotional activities have been suspended. Following the band's reunion in 2004, it released a successful comeback album, "One Hit to the Heart" in 2006. That effort found them becoming a worldwide fan favorite of straight ahead hard rock audiences in 16 different countries on four continents! The concert tour souvenir dvd, "Coming Home Alive" quickly followed in 2007. Prior to this announcement, NightStrike had been in the recording studio, working on their first new release in over a decade. The group would like to thank all of the fans, melodic rock press, radio, tv, promoters, venue operators and especially the dedicated members of the NightStrike Nation for their support over the last 21 years. "From the studio to the stage and all points in between, the last five years since the band's reformation have been incredible and exceeded all of our expectations."
THANK YOU, and GOODNIGHT? -NS

Founded January 1988 in the furthest reaches of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, NightStrike went on to release three albums worth of original music between 1991 and 1997. One part Kiss, one part LA sleaze and a whole lot of Midwestern grit, the hard driving, hard working Nightstrike carved out a niche' for themselves on the fledgling Independent music scene of the late 80's. Although limited in commercial release, NightStrike's recordings were circulated on the underground tape trading circuits of that era.
After a chance encounter and impromptu live performance on Labor Day 2004, the band realized something special was happening and reunited. They went into the studio and emerged with their first recording in over eight years. "One Hit to the Heart" was released to worldwide critical and fan acclaim. After a long, steady climb, the title track first single would eventually reach the top spot on the charts by February 2008!
During subsequent live performance to support One Hit's release, NightStrike was afforded the opportunity to film an entire show. Captured during their triumphant homecoming performance, "Coming Home Alive", etches a moment in time with 20 tracks including their most well-known numbers as well as a few surprises thrown in for good measure. The DVD was released March 28th, 2008...STAY TUNED!!!
