San Francisco’s champions of overcast pop-heavy rock n’ roll, Dangermaker, have a very solid track record, which their forthcoming sophomore album Run succeeds in solidifying further. Picking up where they left off with their Light the Dark EPs, this album is defined by classic songwriting, charmingly familiar hooks and a particular style of raw, warm production that flows throughout courtesy of producer Aaron Hellam. The band has had an exciting past few years, including recent festival appearances at Bottlerock Napa and Live 105’s BFD Music Festivals – with headliners like Florence & The Machine, Atlas Genius, Grouplove, Modest Mouse, Cold War Kids and Best Coast – continuing on with US tour dates. Dangermaker’s new LP is scheduled for release Oct 5, 2018.

Dangermaker emerged from the San Francisco, CA music scene around 2009 when singer/songwriter Adam Brookes unveiled several dozen unfinished home demos to other musicians including drummer Carlos Rodrigues. They collaborated to create edgier sounding songs than either had previously and went in to PopSmear Studios to record with Scott Llamas (Finish Ticket, Dizzy Balloon), resulting in a widely reviewed 5-track EP including the Owl Mag naming Dangermaker “One of my top 5 favorite Indie bands in the Bay Area”. However, the band was still an incomplete duo until keyboardist David DeAngelis left the East Coast to see what the West Coast had to offer and brought bassist friend Neko Fuzzmonk along one night. While all four members began as complete strangers, they were brought together by a shared passion and need to create music reflective of their diverse backgrounds, tastes, and influences, a need that came to fruition when they went into Studio SQ in 2011 to record Black Dream with producers John Flores and Justin Sachs (Two Gallants, Morning Benders, Foreign Cinema). What they could not have imagined was that during the first week of tracking, Adam’s father suffered a fatal accident and suddenly passed away. Dangermaker gained direct insight into a parable that artists have held throughout time — human experience is the substance from which honest and true works of art are formed. While the recording process nearly ground to a halt, the band ultimately used the tragedy as creative motivation and admit that “Without realizing it the experience influenced many of the new songs found on the record. Writing and recording became a process that brought us all together.” Hot on the heels of their 2013 debut album Black Dream, Breakup Records released the Light The Dark EPs and various singles from fall 2014-2017, which have received rave reviews and serve as a signed testament to the timeless maturity and solidity of the band’s sound.

After Brookes’ father passed away during the first week of tracking their debut album Black Dream, Adam, Carlos, Dave & Neko plunged into their art with urgency and a newfound lust for life, eventually emerging with a cathartic sound that defines their new releases on Breakup Records. Channeling a signature brand of lush indie pop ala early Killers, Phoenix, and Anberlin has propelled the band forward and beyond.
