Dark From Day One / Bio

IN THE BEGINNING, WE ARE BORN INTO THIS EARTH - INNOCENT.
NOT KNOWING THE PRESSURE OF STRESS, NOR THE EVILS THAT HUMANITY IS CAPABLE OF.
WE JUST KNOW TO EMBRACE LIFE.
OUR HOPE IS THAT IT WILL NEVER BE ANYTHING SHORT OF EXTRAORDINARY.
THEREFORE… WE ARE IN THE...DARK FROM DAY ONE.
Describing their music as “uplifting, killeriffic music that inspires the listener to hope and love”, Dark From Day One boasts a sound that fits well with bands like Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace "but with more of a Skillet/Red attitude", as they explain. After forming in Russellville , Arkansas in 2006, Dark From Day One set out to find their musical direction, play shows and hone their craft. In Fall 2008, they entered a contest to have their music placed on a Lionsgate film, “The Punisher: War Zone”. They came out ranking in the top 20 out of 4,300 national bands and were dubbed an Official Judges Favorite for the contest. 2009 saw the band continuing to play shows and work on their songwriting and in August 2009, Dark From Day One played their largest show to date, at "Edgefest" with Korn, Mudvayne, Black Label Society, Static-X and Bury Your Dead among others.Then won battle for "Edgefest 6" in May of 2010 and played with Godsmack, Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch and more. The band released their debut full length CD, “The Fire Within”, in early 2010, and soon after inked with renowned US Management and Artist Development Firm, The Inner Light Agency (iLA). "I'm very excited about this partnership and proud to be working with Dark From Day One,” says Damon Moreno of iLA. “The band is seriously focused and driven. I foresee great things for them." Dark From Day One has most recently signed a global distribution deal with UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP/IN GROOVES/JMD RECORDS and also won BATTLE FOR EDGEFEST 7 and opened up for THREE DAYS GRACE, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, STONE SOUR, SKILLET, THEORY OF A DEADMAN, HALESTORM, and SEVENDUST on April 23,2011. Plus their first single “New Addiction” can be purchased for download on ROCKBAND NETWORK for Xbox 360.They teamed up with Howard Rosen (former VP of Marketing for WARNER BROS. RECORDS, who signed KISS, and FOGHAT) and just got finished with a 9 week college radio campaign across 350 colleges across the United States. Their record “The Fire Within” remains number #7 in Wakuesa,WI, #11 in Newton,MA, and #23 in Staten Island, NY.
