The album, recorded in Toronto and mixed by Dave Draper (The Wildhearts, The Professionals), is a return to form for the band. Rich explains “Reuniting with Billy and Jay for this new album brought my focus back to writing with a mindset that was pure, uncompromising Halos - as far as I'm concerned we've really achieved it. Having our friends John and Danni on board makes this feel like the strongest lineup that we've ever had and you can really hear it on this record. Additionally, Billy and I had always planned to call the third album How The Darkness Doubled. So it seemed natural to use that title now, 20 years later, for what I consider to be a spiritual follow-up to The Violent Years.”
How The Darkness Doubled is a relentless, high-octane blast of classic Halos punk rock ‘n’ roll!
These are punked up polkas, waltzes, irish jigs, klezmer dances and sea shanties, all absolutely drenched in alcohol and delivered with an angry, defiant scream. You can hear the first single CIDER HOLIDAY right HERE. Full album coming June 24!
We are insanely stoked to welcome our good buds The Filthy Radicals to the Stomp Records family!
This wild six-piece powerhouse unleashes some of the best ska-punk bangers we've heard in a long time. Their new EP, "The Fine Line Between Real and Insane", comes out on Nov 26th! You can hear the fierce first track "Scavenger" right now!
