Band of the Day: Darko

Darko - SeawardDarko hail from Guildford and specialise in melodic, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-fast fingertapped guitar intricacy woven through a balls out strain of skate punk. You’ve heard plenty of punk bands, but never one like this before – channelling the technical skill of DragonForce and the dischords of Dillinger Escape Plan into a sound that’s got more in common with Pennywise, A Wilhelm Scream and Strung Out.

The band have been treating audiences across Europe to their incendiary live shows since 2010, with a heavy touring schedule marking them out as one of the most energetic and thrilling new punk bands on the circuit.

Previous EP From Trust To Conformity was a roaring statement of intent from the band; five tracks of high-octane riff-filled hardcore punk rock, produced and engineered by Chris Coulter (Arcane Roots, Trails, Empire), who the band head back into the studio with this May to record the follow up release.

2013 saw them performing in over 14 different countries and this year looks no different for the boys, proving that they are one of the hardest working, hardest playing, fastest rising new punk bands out there.

The band have just released a studio video and free download of brand new track – “Seaward” – taken from their forthcoming EP on Lockjaw Records.
