Darko (US) is Josh ‘Baby J’ Miller of SPITE (ex-Emmure) and Tom Barber of Chelsea Grin (ex-Lorna Shore) and they’re fully independent. In the last few months, we’ve heard insane new singles from Darko, ‘Acid Inject‘ and ‘Dragon Chaser‘ – following their hugely successful Darko LP from just las year, including singles like ‘Mars Attacks‘. The record including a bunch of awesome features, including Spiritbox‘s Courtney LaPlante, Molotov Solution‘s Nick Arthur and Shadow of Intent‘s Ben Deurr.
The debut record was a follow-up to an incredible career-defining EP from Darko, named Pt. 1 Dethmask, the world’s first true introduction into this nu-deathcore project. When they released their self-titled record a year later, days after the drop Miller was already teasing Pt. 2 Dethmask on his Instagram story.
Without an album announcement yet though, let’s focus on ‘Come Home‘ (featuring Dayseeker‘s Rory Rodriguez) with a music video that’s just been premiered (check it out below). ‘Come Home‘ is not exactly what you’d expect after the last few singles – the band lean on their ambient side, with more of a Deftones influence and ‘If This Is Forever‘ vibe, except this one’s not an instrumental. It hits different though, in a way you wouldn’t expect Darko to do, check it out.
