Like their debut album MY ONLY SHELTER, all of the new songs were written in Florida, where the group finds the right amount of solitude to creatively flourish. This process is especially important to producer / lead guitarist Rupert Keplinger (a multi Gold/Platinum Artist and Songwriter who´s work with chart topping artists such as Eisbrecher, Peter Maffay, Laith Al-Deen, Oomph! and others is well documented). »Each band and or artist I work with has their own recipe for success, and in my opinion, DARKHAUS has found just the right combination of ingredients«, claims Rupert.
»Everything is covered, from loud, fast rock-tracks to piano ballads – yet today we are more direct and more intense, sometimes even calmer and more mature. Probably even bolder«, adds lead singer / frontman Ken Hanlon, who not long ago strummed his acoustic guitar in the pubs of his Scottish homeland yet is quickly becoming the new, great voice of dark rock.
