Darker My Love

Set for an August 17, 2010 release on Dangerbird Records, Alive As You Are was recorded at San Francisco's legendary Hyde Street Studios with producer Nick Huntington (of acclaimed electronica duo Freescha) and is the band's most musically focused and emotionally direct collection to date.

Beginning June 4th in Dublin, Ireland, the band will head out on a six-date run with Band of Horses throughout the United Kingdom.

A full North American tour to be announced shortly.

To get fans excited, the band is offering the driving new track Dear Author, a song full of stomp, hypnotic arrangements and soulful harmonies, for free download at www.dangerbirdrecords.com/download-dearauthor

The 11 songs that make up Alive As You Are are marked by bold songcraft and earthy, intricate arrangements that further illuminate the band's myriad classic influences. Stripping away the fuzz and distortion of past records, the band allowed their unfortunate real life experiences to take center stage with honest songwriting and put a heavy emphasis on personal healing. The end result is a display of warmth, compassion and personal honesty that translates into a moving and memorable musical excursion, firmly placing Darker My Love among the brightest lights in the long, lysergic history of West Coast psychedelic rock

Alive As You Are is the follow up to the band's breakthrough sophomore album '2,' which received across-the-map critical acclaim for its mind-bending neo-psychedelic grooves and hazily anthemic hooks.

Along with Alternative Press, Filter, The Guardian and the NME, The Los Angeles Times raves "peel away the stoner rock and shoegaze labels you may have affixed to the Los Angeles quintet ... and meet 2, a sophomore album so deep in aural and emotional layers you don't quite know what to call it" while The Village Voice simply says "Darker My Love put out one of the most indelible indie-pop records of '08."
