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 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 end of 2012, which drew 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’. Hit up the band’s Facebook for tour updates.
