About The Darlings:
Capturing the veracious, unbridled feel, unearthed only in the depths of their vintage influences, The Darlings uncompromising DIY ethic and years of paying their dues in the underground has finally brought them here; To the highly anticipated completion of their compelling third album.
Powered by moxie and a coming together of musical solidarity, “Made of Phantoms” is decidedly their most committed, impassioned album to date. A volatile narrative to whoever may be listening. Produced by Andy Carpenter and Buddy Darling, “Made of Phantoms” captures the bands honest, infectious energy that was clearly fostered in introspective passion. Boasting such special guests as Jason Cruz from “Strung Out” and Jason Freese from “Green Day“, the bands third album promises to be an all-encompassing listening experience.
From the riotous stroll through, “There’s a Madman Living in Waco”, to the epic build and conquer of, “Little Teenage Thing”; every note is a stout brew. And just like their live performance, the band captivates with an explosion of sound that can only be cultivated by hard work, urgency and soulful intent. The Darlings continue to respectfully nod to their deep retro-fittings, but effortlessly draw their listeners into uncharted territory; the aromatic essence of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Blues, Punk and Americana that seeps from their sound, seems to have been simmering in a crock-pot full of Black Sabbath’s insidious darkness and Chuck Berry’s dexterous swagger.
The four skilled, California based musicians have already hit the stage with such legendary acts as; Pennywise, Social Distortion, Bad Religion, Youth Brigade, TSOL, Jason Cruz and Howl, Strung Out, Face to Face, Sum 41, and The Circle Jerks… just to name a few.
With their notable hard hitting live attack, The Darlings live shows are not to be missed.
