Born in backseats, raised on the streets, and slamming into your conscience, Rough Night Press is warrior poetry, rebel art, and underground sound.

We want to make you uncomfortable and question your reality.  Break free from boundaries and tear down walls. Erase your ego and transcend your trauma.

We lead you down a dark alley, show you the door marked Caution! Beyond this lie dragons. Abandon hope when you enter here.

Rough Night Press Manifesto

We, at Rough Night Press, have an understanding that warrior poetry, rebel art, and underground sound are the zero point where the entities of our perception meet and submit to the eternal dance.

We believe that art should reimagine this reality without filters or illusion and that the words of prophets on subway walls start revolutions.

Rough Night belongs to poets, the madmen and wild women who through words, images, and music rage against the dying of the light.

We are artists willing to stare into the abyss and translate chaos into beauty.

We are here to guide you through the rough night of the soul.
