RISING UK ROCKSTERS DARK STARES RETURN WITH STOMPING NEW RECORD!
Flaunting a twisted alternative rock sound that is in part influenced by the captivating hooks of the Foo Fighters, the dark angular groove of Them Crooked Vultures, and the song-writing guile of Jack White, Dark Stares are geared up to raise the bar with their stunning new EP ‘Octopon’, out Monday 5th August.
Formed in 2011, and coming from St Albans, Dark Stares are rapidly rising through the UK scene, aided by a growing army of fans and backed by a hefty diet of touring and recording. Since their formation, the alternative rock ‘n’ rollers have supported the likes of Enter Shikari and The Darkness, and have shared festival main stages with everyone from The Subways to Fun Lovin’ Criminals. The assiduous quartet released their debut EP ‘Tell Your Friends’ at the foot of 2012, which drew extensive national recognition and harnessed nationwide radio airplay on XFM Rock show. The band also released their debut single ‘Whisky’, which in turn pushed the foursome out to an international audience.
Dark Stares step up again with the release of their sophomore EP ‘Octopon’. Dispatching four blistering tracks, the record twists and pulls with real vigour, from the pounding groove of ‘Bad Machine’, to the stomping edge of their new single ‘Shinigami’, right through to the boisterously brilliant and down-right sleazy ‘Blackfyre’ and the contagious craft of ‘Steal Your Girl’. Now watch the band blow the roof off every fleapit and sweat box as they hit the road again this summer in support of the record. Hit up the band’s Facebook for tour updates.
