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
