Dark Dark Dark will be headlining shows all over France and the U.S. In addition, the band will support The National for two shows in Portugal this May, with more headlining European and UK dates to be announced soon.
Wild Go, Dark Dark Dark’s sophomore album, is ambitious and layered, welcoming and familiar, and reminds us to seek out the wonder and magic that surround us all the time. Their sound sets Nona Marie Invie’s soaring, haunted voice against an array of traditional instruments, balancing folk and high-art. Along with Marshall LaCount, the two bring together disparate influences including minimalism, New Orleans jazz, Americana, Eastern European folk, and pop. Though, of all the influences on Wild Go, perhaps the greatest is their dedication to live performance and touring, where many of Dark Dark Dark’s songs first come to life. Playing together, the band lifts Invie and LaCount’s songs to another level.
Wild Go was released in October 2010 in the US on Supply & Demand Music, and will be released April 2011 on Melodic in the UK and Europe.

“Offering much more color than their name implies, the band Dark Dark Dark brings a love of surprise, emotional intensity, and an orchestral sensibility to their music. Songs lunge, blaze, and soothe, carried by the powerful voice of Nona Marie Invie.” – David Garland, WNYC’s “Spinning On Air”
“Dark Dark Dark’s sophomore full-length waltzes deftly between the hauntingly eerie and the sweetly precious.” – Erin Griffith, Bust
