Boys Night Out is a rock band from Burlington, Ontariomarker, Canadamarker.

Career

The band formed in 2001 when lead vocalist Connor Lovat-Fraser and current guitarist Jeff Davis started collaborating on ((songs)). The work eventually led to the four-song You Are My Canvas demo, an EP influenced by fellow Burlington hardcore act Grade. Following the release of this demo, the band signed to One Day Savior Records and subsequently released the Broken Bones & Bloody Kisses EP.

Interest in the band was immediate, and a short while later they signed to New Jerseymarker-based Ferret Records. Their debut full-length album, 2003's Make Yourself Sick, was a shock to some fans. It was much lighter and pop-punk-oriented, but with the same heavy screaming and guitars found on earlier releases. The band toured heavily in support of the record with acts such as My Chemical Romance, Catch 22, Saves the Day, and a stint on the Warped Tour circuit. Boys Night Out also was featured in the Nintendo Fusion Tour with Fall Out Boy, Motion City Soundtrack, The Starting Line, and Panic! at the Disco.

The band's next effort, 2005's Trainwreck, is a somewhat more subdued, experimental concept album based on a man's loss of sanity. Trainwreck opens with a doctor dictating his notes into a tape recorder. The album chronicles the arrest, trial, treatment and subsequent release of a man who, in a waking dream, murders his wife and then cuts both his hands off with a machine at his work so that he can not kill again. Kara Dupuy's vocals act as the deceased wife's voice heard by the patient throughout the album.

The band released their third album, Boys Night Out, on June 26, 2007. The first single from the album is "Up with Me".

In 2009, Lovat-Fraser and Davis joined producer Scott Komer to form a band called Hard Calibers. The main purpose of the band was to record a version of ESRT Page 14 by Justin Veatch of the Ivoryton Piano Factory. The song is be featured on a compilation album of music by Veatch, who died in 2008 at the age of 17.



According to their Myspace, Boys Night Out will be aiming to play their first show in two years in Toronto, Canada using the original five members, playing Broken Bones And Bloody Kisses and Make Yourself Sick straight through. However, it is unclear as to whether this will be a final show or the continuation of the band as stated in the post. The show has been scheduled for October 24, 2009 at the Opera House in Toronto.
