NiteRain will be releasing their follow-up album to their debut Crossfire this May. Sleaze Roxx reviewed Crossfire and commented “Crossfire boasts a polished sound alongside clever lyrics and song structures that demand a place in the current hard rock scene. The album also showcases monster riffs, infectious hooks, and strong melodies delivered with the confidence of an experienced band. Crossfire is a well put together album fitting of loud parties, faster cars and boisterous times — give it a listen and savor the joys of trashy, unapologetically decadent fun. If you become addicted to Crossfire, then consider NiteRain to be your dealer.”
