about

Night Knight is the brand new side project of Serafeim Giannakopoulos, drummer of Athens based band Planet of Zeus and one of the most active musicians in the Greek underground rock scene.

Partners in crime in this project are bassist Stelios Provis (Planet of Zeus), drummer Manolis Giannikios (Whereswilder) and guitarist Minas Liakos (Fingers Crossed, TFATFY).

Their debut album, "God Is A Motherfucker", emerged, when Serafeim decided to isolate himself in the studio in August 2014, having encountered some major life changes and with one and only goal...To dive into the vast ocean of sound without a life-jacket.

Free from recipes and without feeling any pressure to succeed, he created an album, which features 11 songs, that make the listener feel like they've heard them somewhere before. He seems to proudly acknowledge his influences, rather than neglecting them in the name of "pseudo-originality". As a result, the album seems to connect the dots of rock history, from Neil Young and Crazy Horse to Radiohead, from Creedence Clearwater Revival to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, from Donny Hathaway and Bruce Springsteen to Jaga Jazzist. "God Is A Motherfucker" flows seamlessly and makes rock relevant like it used to be.

Coming out on double gatefold vinyl, cd and digital album via Inner Ear.

Track Name: Born Again
See the stars above, they're all aligned
They are waiting to explode tonight
Million years of resting just in place
No more tears for the human race

Let's gather around the fire
and build our own empire
Cause if the egos all expire
We'll get what we desire
Yeah

Feels like
I'm born
Again
Oh,oh,oh,oh

We don't act, they 're gonna get us all
They will suck what's left inside our soul
Turn us into smiling robot slaves
They will make us dig our own graves

Let's gather around the fire
and build our own empire
Cause if the egos all expire
We'll get what we desire
Yeah

Feels like
I'm born
Again
Oh,oh,oh,oh

Feels like
I'm born
Again
Let me guide you through my wild wild mind
Track Name: Turned Back Blues
It's all about you
Makes me wanna kill myself
I'm sorry it's true
Now it's time to go

Believe it or not
Did my best in loving you
No time to lose
No goodbyes

The turned back blues

I should have known
When I met your hazel eyes
No harm, no foul
No game, no life

Better alone
don't regret a thing you did
No pain, no gain
No cross, no crown

The turned back blues
Track Name: Us
I could go for miles and miles
with you now babe
I could live with no food on my plate
I could go and go
without wanting anything
I could just go

I could hold my breath
until you say so babe
I could outroar a lion just for you
I could solve the rubik's cube,
although I'm dumb
I could for you

Cause we got us

I could swear,
that all your lies are just the truth
I could dive off a cliff, just say so
I could bang my head
against a concrete wall
Can't sell my soul

Cause we got us

Cause I love you and you love me
There's nothing else for them to see
Track Name: Between My Legs
Well I don't know
What's the right thing to do
Well I don't care
If it's proper or not

Well I don't know
And I can't explain
Cause anyhow
It doesn't matter in the end

You've been doing it again
You've been playing with my head
When what you're looking for
Is between my legs

Got one thing in mind
That makes me feel so fine
I want to take you, take you
Take you my love

Well I don't care
What your folks have to say
Don't give a damn
If they're dead or alive

Well I don't care
if you believe me or not
Well I don't care
What mighty God thinks of us

You've been doing it again
You've been playing with my head
When what you're looking for
Is between my legs

Got one thing in mind
That makes me feel so fine
I want to take you, take you
Take you my love
Track Name: Crystal Rivers
In the misty morning
When the sun goes up
Some of us still wander
From stool to stool and back

You look at the mirror
Wearing your cologne
Picking up your fancy briefcase
and just walking out the door

All the places I have seen
Dreams of love, that could have been
Crystal rivers running
through my glass, honey

Take it or leave it
Take it or leave it
Here for me

Distant melodies whirling
In my mind's maze
Familiar faces come and go around me
They all something want

Some of you think, I'm a loser
But I'm the one who always tried
Betting my life onto something
When you suckers just stood by

All the places I have seen
Dreams of love, that could have been
Crystal rivers running
through my glass, honey

Take it or leave it
Take it or leave it
Here for me
Track Name: The Story Of A Fool
Don't cry now baby
Don't deserve you and you know
Stop acting crazy
And just walk me out the door

The story of a fool
Thinks he's always right
He'll relive the past
To be relieved

I loved you like a fool
But I'll let you fly
Found a thousand ways
To make you suffer

You're gone for good now
Can't deny it anymore
Got no tomorrows
But I'm full of yesterdays

The story of a fool
Thinks he's always right
He'll relive the past
To be relieved

I loved you like a fool
But I'll let you fly
Found a thousand ways
To make you suffer

I loved you like a fool
But I'll let you fly
Found a thousand ways
To make you suffer

The story of a fool
Thinks he's always right
The story of a man
Who's walking down the road
Whispering a song
He wrote about you
Track Name: God Is A Motherfucker
Didn't ask for help you know
Just to leave me all alone
I don't need your guidance
Through the unknown

Quite simple it's indeed
Why don't you just let me be
Don't you have enough to do
For those in need

Yeah,Yeah

Wouldn't even harm a fly
Life just left me high and dry
Now it's time for you
To feel the pain

Take from you the ones you love
Kill the child trapped in your soul
And destroy what kept you
Sane in the first place

It's too late to run and hide
Hear the sound of my scythe
Live your last hours
wandering in fear

Moments pass before your eyes
Half are true, but half are lies
Had your chance to do your shit
So shut up

Took from me the ones I loved
Took from me the ones I loved
Took from me the ones I loved and loved
Yeah

God is a Motherfucker
Track Name: Hang Me Out To Dry
Loving you was easy
Still feel the same
Wish I wasn't busy
Caring just for myself

Had so much to say to you
Couldn't see you cry
Stead I left you wondering
How would it all work out

Leave me alone now baby
Hang me out to dry
Don't be kind now baby
Time 'll just go by

Didn't want to hurt you babe
But that's what I did
Thought I was so cool then babe
Couldn't face the truth

Still dream of you
Holding my hand
No holding back
Selfless love flows and flows

Leave me alone now baby
Hang me out to dry
Don't be kind now baby
Time 'll just go by
Track Name: Turn Back Time
Need to slow down for a second there
Zooming out is not a skill, that I possess
My friend, I know,
I've kept you waiting

Time for healing, time to make amends
Should I chase the bats out of my cave
Or is it me, the one
Who trapped them in

If I could turn back time
Erase my memories
I'd do it all again
I'd be the same fool you see

It's not I love myself
Befriended my own flaws
It's just that, what would be
The point of living a life like this

Small steps seem like giant leaps to me
Burning down the place you once called home
Is not simple, you see
I'm not that brave

Salt is tasty, but it hurts on wounds
Plenty of powder that could kill you in a blink
My friend, I know,
Been there, done that

If I could turn back time
Erase my memories
I'd do it all again
I'd be the same fool you see

It's not I love myself
Befriended my own flaws
It's just that, what would be
The point of living a life like this
Track Name: Nadia
To the beat of your heart
So calm
I don't want to come out

Feels like
floating in the deep space
I am swimming in your belly
and moving at your pace

Stood up
Holding both of your hands
Took me to the moon and back
With your selfless love

Fed up
of this place you see
I will change the world for you
I'll do anything

Don't leave me hanging
Track Name: Set It On Fire
Used to meet a person, hang out and fall in love
Now it's just pixels traveling all around the globe
Bullshit words, fake profiles, stolen identities
Come out with me baby and find out, what life is

Set it on fire

Turn the radio on and listen to that sound
Plastic songs written by children, who don't frown
Is this place the world, that we all had in mind
Why don't we destroy it and take what's ours back

Set it on fire
