Following the release of 2019’s conceptual album ”La Paix Ou Le Sable”, French melodic punk outfit Nightwatchers are back. The band just launched the new single ”White Fathers” a track criticizing the French state for its exploitation of occupied territories during France’s colonial era.
”White Fathers” tackles France’s colonisation of Algeria, and the French state’s attempts of Christianizing the region to -as citing from the track- ”Make the Algerian land the cradle of a Christian nation, make it great and generous, In a word, another France.”
Freddy Coste – Drums
Kevin Bodei – Guitars, Vocals

”White Fathers” follows Nightwatchers’ single ”1905 and the Muslim Exception”, both taken from the band’s upcoming, sophomore album ”Common Crusades”. The album will be released on Lövely Records October 8, and will be available on vinyl and all streaming platforms.
