Bomber on Nocturnal Creatures: “It’s an album filled with big drums, loud guitars and great vocal performances. But there are certainly many layers and emotional depth to this album as well. We’ve all gone through tough times during the writing process. We strongly believe that putting our heart and soul into the songs makes them more accessible to a wider audience, so we did just that. The conceptual theme of the album is the night, and all that belongs to it. The night is when our imagination is freed and we can truly release all that lives deep within us. Sometimes the night can bring fears, but it can also be a comforting place. We have used these concepts as songwriters to tell you stories of what can happen under the cover of darkness. From stories of spirits and ghosts to the stars above – to stories of love and heartbreak. Going through life has many challenges, it can mean going through a lot of hardship and sacrifice – but it is also about finding our joy, our senses and the good in each of us. That’s what this album is about. Welcome to the night… We are all nocturnal creatures.
