Beware Of Darkness
How can three guys make allll that sound??? Beware Of Darkness is the raw yet polished heavy blues rifted, 70’s retro-fied Led Zeppelin’ish, Black Crowes’ish, Jet’ish with a seeming personally emotional twist of modern-lathed musicality, intertwined with ridiculously good songwriting three-piece band of the new rock order. With a front-man that has everything a front man should possess(vocals and guitar playing), a bass player who's energy and showmanship is mysterious yet evident, and a drummer who is explosive and yet calculated beatings, this Los Angeles born band is a breath of fresh air… and music.
Formed in 2011 in Los Angeles California, Beware of Darkness were soon signed to Bright Antenna records, an American indy label with the strength and wherewithal of a major. The band's debut record, entitled Orthodox, was released on May 7, 2013 in the United States and was executive produced by Dave Sardy (LCD Soundsystem, Oasis, Band of Horses, NIN, Rage Against The Machine, Gorillaz, Jay-Z, White Denim).
In 2013 after playing at SXSW, Beware of Darkness toured the UK for the 1st time which included an appearance at the famed Reading and Leeds Festival and a tour across Europe as main support for The Smashing Pumpkins. The band have performed at several radio festivals and shows with Cage The Elephant, Alice in Chains, AWOLNATION, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Soundgarden and Jane's Addiction. In August 2013, they were nominated by the UK's Classic Rock Magazine for "Best New Band" along with Deap Vally and Walking Papers. The band is about to release their sophomore album (Sept 2016) titled "Are You Real?" with Kyle Nicolaides still as the front man and Daniel Curcio still on Bass.. and yes, Tony Cupito still behind the trap set. In November of 2015 D&A Guitar Gear was blessed to add Beware of Darkness to our official artist roster. We can’t say enough having the band support and love our gear!! We freakin LOVE B.O.D.
