The Darling Fire's Debut Album "Dark Celebration" Out June 14th. New Single and Pre-orders Available Now.
The debut album from The Darling Fire, Dark Celebration, will be released everywhere on June 14th and we’re thrilled to premiere the band’s first single “For the Loveless” exclusively on Billboard. Pre-orders for the album are available now here and include an instant download of “For The Loveless.”
After years of individual success in some of the scene's most beloved bands, The Darling Fire was born of both deep struggle and deeper friendships. A veritable mosaic of indie notoriety, the band features members of The Rocking Horse Winner, Further Seems Forever, Dashboard Confessional, Poison The Well, Shai Hulud, As Friends Rust, and Strongarm among others. Dark Celebration is in many ways what you'd anticipate — energetic, powerful, melodic, and heavy; however, it is far more nuanced than you would imagine. The collective sum of the parts and the alluring heart-on-sleeve lyrics produce a more intimate, spacey and bewitching experience — an authenticity that speaks to the true cathartic nature of the project. The result of their collaboration with producer J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines, Government Issue) is a powerful coalescence of artistry and vision — a record that five artists spent their entire careers waiting to make.
