Surfacing from suburbia Indiana, pop-punk band Late Nite Reading is quickly climbing up the industry ladder and doesn’t show signs of slowing down. After two EP releases and and now a third, the band has done nothing but spread their name and tour non-stop throughout 2012 & 2013. For being a band just out of high school, they have already shared the stage with an impressive roster of bands such as All Time Low, Cartel, The Summer Set, and Taking Back Sunday.
Originating in the summer of 2009, bassist Brady Szuhaj and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Dalton Wixom joined together from a previous band to start something new. After a number of member changes during the beginning stages of the band, they now have a solid line up. Joining Wixom and Szuhaj is drummer Drew Cottrell and Clayton Collins on lead guitar to create Late Nite Reading.
Working with producers Shep Goodman & Aaron Accetta, the band’s much anticipated third EP, Walls, was released on April 26th, 2013. “This experience has been way different than any other writing experience I've ever had,” says Szuhaj, “We wrote everything together, lyrics and melodies, the 4 of us really putting ourselves into the songs.” When asked about how the band came up with the title Walls, Szuhaj had a clear, yet compelling answer, “It’s all about breaking down the things that hold you back”.
From fan favorite song “What You Went Through” and the latest single from the band “From the Start”, the band is expeditiously improving their music with pop, dance, and feel-good vibes. “There are elements of pop rock, punk rock, alternative rock, pop punk, ambient rock, and bubble gum pop” Szuhaj explains about the bands latest release.
The band is also known to be very personal with their fans. From doing meet and greets when they have days off, to private parties, to just taking the time to talk to fans whenever they have the chance. Fans describe the live shows as “full of energy and feeling extremely personal”. Whether it’s dual vocals or memorable covers of top hits, Late Nite Reading captures the attention of fans from many different genres. And their fans also mean everything to the band. “Without them, I wouldn’t have a reason to make music. They’re the only reason we do this” says Wixom in an interview. “We just get to be ourselves and its awesome”.
