The Darts (US) are a garage-psych-rock super-group that calls both Los Angeles and Phoenix home. The band formed in early 2016 and have exploded all over the music scene since being picked up by Dirty Water Records (after their second ever gig!) and show no sign of stopping their takeover of the planet , having quickly become a well-seasoned touring powerhouse with multiple US and European tours already under their belts.
Nicole Laurenne (The Love Me Nots, Motobunny, Zero Zero), Rikki Styxx (The Two Tens, The Dollyrots, Thee Outta Sites), Christina Nunez (The Love Me Nots, Casual Encounters, The Madcaps), and Michelle Balderrama (Brainspoon) formed The Darts (US) in early 2016 when, after watching each other’s bands from the sidelines for years, realized there was no good reason why they shouldnt just start writing songs together and form a super-badass group of grrrls sharing the same passion for 60s garage-trash and modern psych jams.
Having already built a devoted fan base around the globe, the group will kick off a 12 night tour of Europe ( their second of four European tours planned in 2018) starting in London at The Dirty Water Club with label soul-mates The Cavemen (NZ) for a special double-record release launch party. The group have just released their first ever 7″ (their first release since the bands debut full length “Me. Ow.” on Dirty Water Records last autumn) as a collaboration with Alternative Tentacles Records and Dirty Water Records USA. They will also celebrate the reissue of their twin debut 10″ EP’s, melted in full-bloom on a spectacular slab of of 12″ pink splattered vinyl available now to order.
