Interscope/Vertigo Records’ artist The Night Game aka Martin Johnson dropped an official video for the fan favorite track “Bad Girls Don’t Cry,” which is out now worldwide on all digital platforms.
Last month, The Night Game completed yet another successful headlining North American tour, which saw them sell-out across the country and play larger venues than the tour before. Coming up, Martin Johnson and his band will be performing live at this year’s Bottle Rock in California on May 26, andFire Fly Festival in Delaware on June 16.
“I’ve never been one for the whitewashed past or white lies of a saint. I’ve always preferred the honest outlaw.” Johnson tell of “Bad Girls Don’t Cry” and a chance encounter with a woman he met in Las Vegas who inspired him to write the song “When I asked about her past she looked me in the eye and said, “bad girls don’t cry.” He continues. “I got in the car and drove home to finish the album.”
“Bad Girls Don’t Cry” serves as the follow up to “Kids In Love,” “Once In A Lifetime” and the critically acclaimed debut single, “The Outfield,” a song so infectious that it caught the attention of John Mayer, leading to his asking Martin to join his North American Tour.
Originally hailing from a small town outside of Boston, The Night Game entered the musical arena full-steam with their debut single “The Outfield,” OUT NOW. Described as a “future classic” by Noisey. “The Outfield” was co-produced by Johnson and Grammy award winning producer Francois Tetaz, it also features backing vocals from Grammy Award winning Gotye and guitars from Australian performer and musician Kirin Callinan (Terrible Records).
Martin Johnson is currently working The Night Games’ debut album, which is set for release later this year. More details on this highly anticipated full-length coming soon.
