Night Wave is the second studio album by Los Angeles based Electrohop group Hyper Crush. The album was released on the iTunes Store on February 7, 2012.[1] The album was released on Hyper Crush's label Night Wave Records after leaving their previous label Universal Motown because they "really didn’t see eye to eye with them for a long time."[2] The album consists of 11 songs, 4 of which were previously released as singles. Save for three of the songs which were co-written and co-produced, the entire album was written and produced by Hyper Crush.

A trailer created by Cassidy Sanders for the album was released January 17, 2012 featuring "What Goes Up".[3] To generate hype and boost their pre-order numbers, free physical copies of the album were sent to fans who pre-ordered the album.[4] Another promotional giveaway occurred during their official album release party, which was held at The Roxy Theatre on February 3, 2012.[5] The CD was later available to buy on their website. They also released videos for "WTF", "Chead" and "Bad Boyz".
