A Dark In The Light
- Atrophy Of Me
I recently got an email from Seth and he told me to take a listen to his band. I gave it a listen and it blew me away! The first time I heard Dopplegangers, I knew they are the band to listen to for 2008. For the hardcore scene, there is always one band I hear each year that stands out in my book and A Dark In The Light is that band. Give it a listen, go to their site http://www.myspace.com/adarkinthelight as well as ReverbNation.com.
Below is a message from Seth and some info about the band.....
This is Seth from A Dark In The Light checkin in with all you bloggers! I hope you enjoy our material and join our email list, friend us on myspace, or just drop a line via any form of communication. We will be playing several live shows over the next few months, highlighted by a March 8th gig at The Middle East Club in Cambridge, MA. If any of you are local, please come out and say hi! Thank you all for your support, and we hope to see you out there in the real world!
Seth & A Dark In The Light
True success will only be achieved through struggle and perseverance. This is a credo that A Dark In The Light takes to heart as the band prepares to move forward and launch itself into the throes of the Boston heavy music scene in 2008. While Mike McCarthy (guitars, vocals) and Seth Roberts (drums, vocals) have waded through their share of personal and professional hurdles on their way to this exciting time, it is the music that has kept everything together. Formed out of a love for metal, blues, punk, and sincere, intelligent rock, A Dark In The Light does not hold fast to any claims or gimics. The music and the people who care about the music are what matter to the band.
Despite its northeastern roots, the band took shape in Gainesville, Florida, where McCarthy and Roberts united with bassist Josh Vlahos and began to craft the songs that would comprise their 2007 debut EP. Eight months of rehearsing, gigging, and recording resulted in something none of the three members were certain would be achieved—A Dark In The Light became something tangible. Heart, soul, and struggle were all wrapped up into a package and represented by eight songs that reflected a musical vision and, more importantly, a belief in that vision. The recent college grads also learned a thing or two about life, and perhaps, that was the most valuable part of their Gainesville experience.
Looking to the future, the band parted ways with Vlahos and returned to the northeast in order to pursue their dreams a bit closer to home. The following months proved stressful, as they faced several setbacks in the search for the right musician to once again complete the band. After several musicians fell by the wayside, the band finally settled on Rowan Elowe to take over bass responsibilities. Now officially a full time member, A Dark In The Light is thrilled to have Rowan’s impressive skill set, including a background in jazz and a passion for brutal metal, to complete the band. Always looking to expand and improve, A Dark In The Light looks forward to its new chapter with Rowan, and is in the process of writing new material. The band would like to personally thank everyone who has supported them during both the good and the difficult times. We hope to see you all in the front row soon!
