Darker My Love, a band hailed for their “monster psych anthems that simultaneously howls for lysergic sunshine and – most importantly – the repeat button” by Alternative Press, are excited to announce a fall tour with Band Of Horses. Beginning August 17th 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 17th on Dangerbird Records.
ALIVE AS YOU ARE, the follow up to the breakthrough sophomore album “2,” is Darker My Love’s most musically focused and emotionally direct collection to date. Informed by profound personal tragedy, the 11 songs that make up ALIVE AS YOU ARE 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.
To get fans excited, Darker My Love is offering new track SPLIT MINUTE for free download at http://dbrd.la/ahyEc1
