DARKCELL is one of Australia's fastest rising acts. Formed in Brisbane in 2012, the band has performed over 200 shows to date. Visually and musically DARKCELL have proven themselves as a world class outfit and this four piece band shows no signs of slowing down. Packing stadium level hooks and a loud, abrasive and industrial rock sound, they have been tagged as a ‘modern day Kiss’. Larger than life stage show, party vibes and dance grooves give a fun atmosphere and keep fans coming back for more.
Touring highlights to date include the prestigious Soundwave Festival nationally in 2014 (with AVENGED SEVENFOLD, KORN, ROB ZOMBIE etc...) and countless other headline and support shows across Australia with MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, WEDNESDAY 13 (MURDERDOLLS), SEVENDUST, OTEP, COMBICHRIST, 28 DAYS and more. In 2015 DARKCELL embarked on their first international tour across the USA. The Civil Unrest Tour saw the band perform 22 shows across 13 states in 26 days. The tour also included ILL NINO, MOTOGRATER, DAVEY SUICIDE and a fist full of local acts.
Other career highlights include TV music placements with Sydney reality show Bondi Ink on Channel 11 (Ten Network), as well as radio play on numerous national and independent radio stations including Triple J, Triple M, Andrew Haug Radio, 4ZZZ Brisbane and many more. College radio across the USA have also been very receptive, with many stations playing both music and featuring interviews with the band. Through the use of social media and mailing lists the band continues to demonstrate the importance of fans via constant interaction and updates with their followers, dubbed the ‘Army of Darkness’. No overhyped marketing or costly advertising machine in this equation, just a band with a strong DIY ethic connecting with their fans one on one.
For fans of ROB ZOMBIE, MARILYN MANSON, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, MURDERDOLLS, WEDNESDAY 13 and NINE INCH NAILS.
