Inspired by the crunchy blues-based riffs of Led Zeppelin
and two-piece alt-rock bands like the White Stripes
and the Black Keys
, Beware of Darkness was formed in 2010 by vocalist/guitarist Kyle Nicolaides and drummer Tony Cupito.
While touring from their home city of Los Angeles to Santa Monica, they met up with bassist Daniel Curcio and expanded into a trio. Beware of Darkness continued to tour often, playing the SXSW festival and touring with the Wombats
, before releasing the Howl EP in 2012. In 2013, the group released its debut album, Orthodox, and picked up a slot opening for Smashing Pumpkins
on their summer tour of Europe. ~ Jason Lymangrover, Rovi
