LA-based Beware of Darkness are set to release their new album Are You Real? on September 16th via Bright Antenna Records. In anticipation, the band shares a new video for lead single “Dope” with PopMatters today – a quintessential example of BOD’s trademark humor with a dark, surrealist twist. The video, shot by acclaimed video director Keith Musil, features the band being saved from fiery wreckage by a badass gang of lady bodybuilders.
The band has also announced a west coast tour that kicks off on August 17th and hits cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, and more. A full list of tour dates is below.
Are You Real? is the band’s biggest and boldest statement yet. The 12-track collection serves as an urgent call to arms not only for Nicolaides, but for the band’s sound as well. The music ushers the rebirth of a sound that is as refreshing as it is addictive, and goes much deeper than riffs.
