Darker My Love is an indie psychedelic rock band based in Los Angeles, California. The band consists of 5 members. Tim Presley, a former member of the band The Nerve Agents and also a visual artist responsible for much of the band's imagery, formed the band in 2004 and contributes vocals and guitar. Drummer Andy Granelli, formerly a member of both The Nerve Agents and The Distillers, co-founded the band with Presley. They were joined shortly thereafter by bassist Rob Barbato, who shares songwriting and lead vocal duties with Presley, and rhythm guitarist Jared "The Sandwich" Everett. Will Canzoneri joined the band on organ and clavinet in the latter half of 2006.
The band has released one EP and two LP's. Recorded in 2005, their debut LP was released on 22 August 2006 on Dangerbird Records. On 28 August 2007, the band released a 12" 45 rpm split record with Denver-based rock group Moccasin, featuring the song "Hair Decisions." The record was the first release on L.A.-based label I Hate Rock N Roll. In Spring 2006, Presley and Barbato became members of the prolific British post-punk group The Fall, and are both featured prominently on The Fall's 2007 album Reformation Post TLC. Their second album, entitled 2, was released in the US on 5 August 2008 on Dangerbird Records and roughly a year later in the UK, Europe, and Australia. One track from the album ("Blue Day") is also featured on Guitar Hero 5. In 2009, Andy Granelli left the band due to exhaustion and was replaced by a rotating cast of drummers; the band's current drummer is Dan Allaire. The band recorded its third LP in Northern California in January 2010.
The band name was derived from a TSOL song of the same name. Members
