Interested in starting a new project in April 2012, Little Ben (Bass) called Freakshow (Guitarist/vocalist) and Xavier (Drums). The idea was to get players whose personalities would compliment eachother and to just have fun making music. Nothing more nothing less. The trio got along better than expected, and DARKLIGHT was born.
After only one month their first single "Castle" was recorded and by the second month began playing shows, winning people over with their unique sound.
In September 2013, DARKLIGHT put together a successful CD Release party for their first album "Anomaly" that included some of the best bands in the area. They love to include the crowd in their shows, so when it was time to play "Castle", they had a guest singer perform the song. A little girl in "Freakshow" makeup as well as a couple celebrating their anniversary joined them on stage to rock out (See the pics/video clip).
DARKLIGHT has MANY influences and did away with boxing ourselves into one "kind" of music. We will play acoustic, hard rock, metal, or anything else that feels right and perhaps takes an interesting twist...defining our art rather than letting our art define us. AND we bring our visual art to the stage when we play. We're all about having fun and being creative. Check us out here or on Facebook and say hello!!
