One of the UK’s most exciting modern melodic hardcore bands have just released a video for the third single on their debut full-length record Bonsai Mammoth. “Lifeblood” sees the band in an altogether more shadowy context than fans might be accustomed to but the visuals complement the track’s introspective message well. You can watch the video in full below.
Darko are currently out on tour in Australia having just finished a short run of shows with Belvedere, Almeida, Bare Teeth and waterweed in Japan. We’ve also included their Australian tour poster below.

Darko have released a real purdy new video for “Just a Short Line,” off their most recent album, “Bonsai Mammoth.”
This is the first I’ve heard them, and I’m sold. My mom says I’m a pretty cool dude, so you should probably take my opinion seriously.

After spending the better part of the past decade cutting their teeth on a string of EPs and singles, Darko are entering the realm of full length albums. Bonsai Mammoth, the band’s debut LP, sees the band coming out with fists swinging and guitars blazing.
“Life Forms” kicks off the album, with a slow intro before launching into a high energy ripper, setting the tone of things to come. Like all great skate punk acts, Darko make use of dueling guitar leads to give their songs an urgent feeling, ripping through notes at lightning speeds. The band continues to keep up the pace for nearly the entire duration of Bonsai Mammoth, giving listeners only a 35 second break in the form of “The Chernobyl Effect,” which acts as an interlude between the album’s first and second halves.
Early promotional materials for Bonsai Mammoth state that the album breaks apart from the band’s previous conceptual narratives. While that may be true on a technical level (there’s certainly no fictional story to follow from track-to-track), there’s still an underlying current of despair and the search for hope, giving the album a sense of cohesiveness and unity. The aforementioned “Life Forms” declares the band’s autonomy and apathy right from the get-go: “I don’t wanna be a part of it and I don’t care for all of this shit.” This might not be the most original of defiant statements, but it’s surely what a lot of people are feeling all over the world given the current state of things.
2017 may have only just begun, but it’s already in dire need of an aggressive soundtrack. Darko and Bonsai Mammoth are there to start things off.

UK skate-punk act Darko have premiered their brand new single “In The Company Of Wolves” in the form of an epic new music video in which the five-piece thwarts the efforts of evil outer space forces attempting to destroy their local town of Guildford.
‘We were just harmlessly performing our righteous new track and this creepy bloke came from no where and started getting all up in our grills.’, explained guitarist Rob Piper.
Darko banded together and decided that enough was enough. They used their combined forces to bring about the ‘Darko WolfBot’, and eventually stopped Space Emperor Lord Sithulu.
‘It’s all in a day’s work really. We are happy that the city can get on with it daily business.’, added singer Dan Smith.
Check out the video (and epic battle) below.
“In The Company Of Wolves” is exclusively available on the “No Guts No Glory” charity compilation that is raising funds in aid of Crohn’s & Colitis UK. The tribute is available now through Lockjaw Records.

Fans of UK skate-punk will know the name well and rightly so however those from further afield may be less familiar with the band, Darko, who have released a teaser video for an upcoming single. The single will represent the first new music from the Guildford based five-piece since the 2014 masterpiece “Sea Of Trees” and if previous efforts are anything to go by, it will not disappoint. The new track should drop on May 10th but if you can’t wait that long you can enjoy some of the finest facial hair in fast-punk goofing around at their Facebook page. Enjoy.
