The new Darker My Love record, 2, comes out today on Dangerbird Records, and it's just an all around good rock 'n' roll record (more on that later). They've always been a great live band, so it's nice to hear the album live up that promise. To celebrate itsrelease, their record release party takes place this Thursday at the Troubadour. Opening the show will be Eulogies (label head Peter Walker's band), Amnion (one of my favorite new-ish LA bands featuring the multi-talented Aaron Embry) and Tweak Bird (who are very intense and worth getting there early for).
I've got one pair of tickets (and a copy of the new DML record) to give away. Email me [dukeufo at hotmail] with the name of the record you're most looking forward to in the second half of the year. Please put Darker My Love in the subject line. The contest closes Wednesday at 8:00 AM.
