Read this Before-the-Shoot PRESS RELEASE:

In celebration of their upcoming music video shoot for “Empire Vampire”, Brooklyn-based band The Goodnight Darlings have released the track as a free download.

The band plans to film this dark fairytale with an incredible creative team, including a huge cast of Florida dancers from Close Up Experience. The innovative dance production company is dedicated to promoting cool new music, while also teaching pre-professional & young professional dancers how to perform for the camera in the TV musical genre.

Directing the musical short film will be Sundance Film Festival Alumnus Roger Ingraham. This is his first foray back into the vampire genre since he made headlines in 2006 as the youngest filmmaker to ever get accepted into Sundance with his feature film “Moonshine”.

The Goodnight Darlings’ first single, “Red Hot”, was featured on ESPN’s “Unite”. Their debut EP, “Doll Drums”, is available now via iTunes and Spotify.
