Tomorrow, Brutal Panda Records is proud to release ‘Live Bait’, the debut EP from Denver, CO’s NIGHT FISHING. Comprised of four seasoned Rocky Mountain Road Dogs (members of Call of the Void, Green Druid, Abrams, Muscle Beach), NIGHT FISHING exist to explore the boundaries of improvisation, mood and structure within the realms of heavy, instrumental sound. They are rounding out the trio of in-studio music videos with the hypnotic slow-burner, “No Services.”


Across three tracks and 25+ minutes of fuzzed-out Heavy Psych, hypnotic Krautrock and free-form jazz, NIGHT FISHING seamlessly weave together a melting pot of brain-liquifying sonic euphoria. An experience that could only be formulated live in the studio and within the confines of the moment…NIGHT FISHING is for lovers and will take you where the vibe wants to go. 

Watch the music video for “No Services”, recorded live in the studio HERE via Brutal Panda’s YouTube Channel.

Drummer Gordon Koch, who also created the album’s trippy artwork via Artificial Intelligence, commented on how the project came together: 

“NIGHT FISHING is a Heavy Psych/Krautrock improv concept I mulled over during the lockdown period of the initial COVID-19 outbreak. My longtime touring metal band (Call of the Void) had just broken up (December 2019) and my jazz connection had moved out of state so I had no musical prospects while I was held up in my apartment. I wanted to combine elements of improv jazz into a rock format using light song structure to allow for more natural flow of solos, giving each player room to breathe and express themselves. Once the city opened back up a little bit I hit the pavement looking for players. I found 3 friends from the Denver metal scene who were looking for something different and could handle the riffage!

“This EP was recorded live, as both an audio and visual experience, by Chris McNaughton at Rocky Mountain Recorders. We sat in the round with a full camera crew in the studio, led by Alex Pace, to capture the moment and energy, bouncing solos off each other all in one take. I feel like these first songs are a more ‘live’ experience so I wanted the video crew there to allow everyone to join us. We were mostly familiar with all the hits but use a lot of eye contact and musical cues to move things along. This session was a BLAST to record, I think about 4 hours total in the room.”

He elaborated further on “No Services”: 

“This was the first song we wrote as a group. Taking more of a downtempo stoner vibe, we experimented with keeping things mellow while also hitting some hard Black Sabbath shit. The solo sections are really fun here. It’s based on getting stuck in traffic up the mountain and having to poop real bad.”
