Darker My Love are excited to announce a fall tour with Band Of Horses. Beginning August 17 in Los Angeles, CA, the west coast quintet will embark on a short headlining tour before extending their summer trek with Band of Horses, which began in the United Kingdom this June. These dates come in support of the band's upcoming album, Alive As You Are, out August 17 on Dangerbird Records. Mark your calendar if you like monster psych rock ballads, since that’s how DML have been described.
This new platter is said to be Darker My Love's most musically focused and emotionally direct collection to date. Informed by profound personal tragedy, the 11 songs that make up the album travel away the glorious fuzz and distortion of past records to a more evocative approach marked by bold, honest songwriting and intricate arrangements that further illuminate the band's myriad of classic influences. The end result is a moving and memorable musical excursion of mind-bending neo-psychedelic grooves and hazily anthemic hooks; one that firmly places Darker My Love among the brightest lights in the long history of West Coast rock. That is a bold ass statement, so we can wait till August 17 to see if the description is reality. I have faith, though!
But the band is not just spewing hyperbole. Check out the dreamy but thoroughly rocktacular track "Split Minute," which is being offered for free download at http://dbrd.la/ahyEc1. Go ahead. Give them your email address and get your free song. Enjoy. I did.
