The BLACK HALOS – ” How The Darkness Doubled “

Posted: November 20, 2022 in MUSIC

“The Halos are back in Black! Formed in the underbelly of the Vancouver punk music scene in 1994, The Black Halos were a sneering, snotty, slap in the face to the Seattle grunge scene. Their raucous live shows garnered the attention of Sub Pop Records. The band came to an abrupt end when their van, trailer, and equipment were stolen in Montreal in 2008. Now original members Billy Hopeless, Rich Jones and Jay Millette have reunited, adding new members John Kerns and Danni Action.

Following jammed-to-the-rafters shows at Toronto’s Canadian Music Week and their hometown of Vancouver, the band are ready to win over a new generation of rock ‘n’ roll fans with a brand new album, “How The Darkness Doubled”. Rich explains “Reuniting with Billy and Jay for this new album brought my focus back to writing with a mindset that was pure, uncompromising Halos — as far as I’m concerned we’ve really achieved it.

Having our friends John and Danni on board makes this feel like the strongest lineup that we’ve ever had and you can really hear it on this record. Additionally, Billy and I had always planned to call the third album “How The Darkness Doubled”. So it seemed natural to use that title now, 20 years later, for what I consider to be a spiritual followup to “The Violent Years“.
