We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Darkwings’ new song “Necropants” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP Super Silver, which is scheduled to be released on October 26, 2018 through Good Eye Records.
With the mild underground success of LAMEONIA under their belts, Darkwing drew the attention of young David Silver(stein), a recording engineer who works at the illustrious Sabella Studios in Long Island NY (the studio that put out that platinum Marcy Playground record in the 90s). Named in honor of this engineer who worked on his own time and for the thick clouds of various kinds of smoke that were ever present, Super Silver is a concise meditation on self confidence, love, loss and societal degradation–in that order.
Featured on this album are previous members of Darkwing who are still friends of the band; Drew McQuade on drums and Zakk Mild on bass. The music was recorded and mixed by David Silverstein and then mastered by Scott Andrews. The artwork (made by Rich) is meant to represent the wide variety of inspirations that went into the songs on this EP. There are elements of surf, punk, grunge, kraut-rock, as well as modern rock from California. You’ll see what I mean.
