(LONG BRANCH, NJ) -- A Lot Like Birds will be headlining a night at the Brighton Bar in Long Branch, NJ on Monday, November 4 along with the bands HRVRD, Night Verses, and My Iron Lung. The night is produced by GameChangerWorld.

A Lot Like Birds is a post-hardcore band from Sacramento, CA, known for their tendency to flawlessly blend a wide array of genres; from ambient soundscapes to aggressive punk-fueled anthems to unpredictable prog-rock freakouts. In early 2011, the band announced that Kurt Travis (formally of Dance Gavin Dance) would be joining the band as a second vocalist. Soon after, they signed to Doghouse Records (All American Rejects, Say Anything, The Get Up Kids) and acquired The Artery Foundation (Asking Alexandria, Dance Gavin Dance, Alesana) as management. A Lot Like Birds will be releasing their new album No Place on October 29th.

Originally a post-hardcore band in its infancy, North Carolina's HRVRD has evolved into an emotionally captivating and enthralling group of musical artists. Together the band, formerly known as Harvard, released their debut EP Animals in 2008 followed by the critically acclaimed full-length album The Inevitable and I less than a year later through Enjoy The Ride Records. On the new album, HRVRD's haunting sound blends intricate and cinematic guitar riffs with dark,passionate lyrics and powerful, driving rhythms.

The show will also feature local act Audio Insight. Audio Insight is a progressive post-hardcore band from NJ. They've played the Bamboozle Festival twice (2011/2012) and have shared the stage with bands like Periphery, A Lot Like Birds, and Foxy Shazam. They have toured throughout NY, NJ, VA, PA, and MN.

Tickets for the event are $15.00. DOORS: 6:00 P.M. SHOWTIME: 6:30 P.M. Visit
