Following their recent Europe tour of 16 dates across 6 countries, Guildford tech-punks Darko are pleased to share a free download of their brand new track “Seaward” taken from their forthcoming EP on Lockjaw Records – check out the stunning artwork below and be sure to stream and/or download the song just above.

Darko hail from Guildford and specialise in melodic, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-fast fingertapped guitar intricacy woven through a balls out strain of skate punk. You’ve heard plenty of punk bands, but never one like this before – channelling the technical skill of Dragonforce and the dischords of Dillinger Escape Plan into a sound that’s got more in common with Pennywise, A Wilhelm Scream and Strung Out.

Previous EP From Trust To Conformity was a roaring statement of intent from the band; five tracks of high-octane riff-filled hardcore punk rock, produced and engineered by Chris Coulter (Arcane Roots, Trails, Empire), who the band head back into the studio with this May to record the follow up release.
