RIDE PUNK WAVE OUTTA SOUTH BAY;
Hailing from Hermosa Beach, The Darlings are a proud part of the new generation of South Bay punk bands weaned on local legends like Black Flag, the Descendents, and the Circle Jerks, as well as current hometown scene leaders Pennywise. Playing a no-holds-barred, brutally honest and in-your-face style of punk rock, the band is quickly making its own mark on the scene.
It’s probably too early to herald them as leaders of the third wave of South Bay heroes on par with the '80s scene and the '90s resurgence, but if its self-titled EP, available now on iTunes, has anything to say, it would be ‘turn it up and get out of the way.’
The Darlings (singer/guitarist Buddy Darling, guitarist Josh Kearney, bassist Kris Kranes, and drummer Josh Fasen) have already toured with such legendary acts as Pennywise, Social Distortion, Bad Religion, Youth Brigade, Guttermouth, and the aforementioned Circle Jerks.
Winner of the Battle of the Bands presented by AMI Productions, the South Bay’s most prestigious band competition, The Darlings story is only beginning.
