That’s why dangerkids (DANGEЯKIDS, dk, >>) deliberately waited for the right moment, situation, and circumstances to release their second full-length album, @blacklist_ [Paid Vacation Records]. 2013’s Collapse introduced the Dayton, OH quartet—Andy Bane [vocals], Tyler Smyth [vocals, rhymes, production], Jake Bonham [bass], and Katie Cole [drums]—to listeners everywhere with a bang. The band earned acclaim from Alternative Press, Rock Sound, and Kerrang! as songs like “light escapes” garnered over 2.1 million Spotify streams and counting and 700k YouTube views. They graced stages around the globe, tore up Warped Tour 2014, and hit the road with the likes of Falling In Reverse, issues, and Motionless in White. Seamlessly hybridizing rock, hip-hop, and electronic elements into an inimitable musical DNA, their evolution shines through blacklist_.
“I want it to be something fans can listen to front to back,” concludes Andy. “The greatest compliment is when a song gets a fan through something difficult. I think these songs can do that.”
