Those Darlins Heading Back on Tour

Photo credits: Karp and Steve Cross.

After their tour with King Khan almost collapsed upon itself (luckily it didn't!) the Darlins are back on the road, where they have been for the better part of the last year and a half promoting their startlingly fantastic self-titled debut that came out in June. The three women from Murfreesboro have come a long way with their live performance since we saw them long ago at Southpaw with Nikki's soon to be husband John McCauley's band Deer Tick. The harmonies are there, and their playing is sharp, especially with the addition of Linwood on the trap set. Much is made about their rough around the edges approach and hard living ways. Yet, none of that matters very much if you don't have the songs. Luckily, Those Darlins do. Bowery on Feb 5, full dates after the jump.
