[EXCLUSIVE LISTEN] Darklands Premiere “Barton” Off Upcoming EP ‘St. Thaddeus’

New music out of Rhode Island. Darklands premier "Barton" on Bishop & Rook.

Providence, RI’s Darklands channels Smashing Pumpkins, Dinosaur Jr. and Silversun Pickups with their upcoming grungy, distorted, poppy 5-song EP, ‘St. Thaddeus’ (New England Standard Records).

“You could put us somewhere between emo, shoegaze and grunge pop (new gaze?),” explains bassist David Marcotte.

Like a teenage romance, ‘St. Thaddeus’ is primarily thoughtful, climaxes early with “So Negative” and leans heavily on drawn out emotions, finishing with an emorific 7:45 minute track, “Hope”, complete with the lyrics “You're not enough...I wouldn't die for you. I wouldn't die for me, too.”

St. Thaddeus’ is due out late June, and will be available on cassette and as a digital download, with a potential vinyl option to follow. Check out the exclusive premier of “Barton”, streaming on Bishop & Rook below. Follow Darklands on Facebook for show and release information. And listen to the album's previously released tracks "So Negative" and "Green" on Bandcamp.

Upcoming Shows:
June 13th: No Problemo, New Bedford w/ Holy Hands, Glass Floor
June 19th: DV8, Providence w/ You Blew It, Twin Foxes
June 26th: Dusk, Providence w/ Feedback Psychosis, Tape Eater, Bangladeafy, Mis(s)invader
July 20th: Psychic Readings, Providence w/ Burglary Years, Hemingway, Holy Hands

Warming Up With The Screw-ups

Things I've learned this winter. My neighbors are allergic to shovels, the state of Massachusetts owes me at least $300 in pothole damages, and although drinking a Corona in the snow won't encourage summer to magically appear, it can make you feel warmer. Similar to when you listen to a reggae band like The Screw-ups.
