The San Antonio, Texas based goth rock/post-punk trio In A Darkened Room have a new video out, “Descend”. “Descend” is the first song from the band’s debut album “Sorrows” and features a solemnly, slow cruise through a local cemetery that the band visits upon occasion for inspiration.

Frontman CJ Duron explains: “We would drive up and down the rows most likely playing Book of Love or Echo and The Bunnymen. The drive usually put me in a semi meditative state conducive for writing. I also spent 10 years of my life engraving headstones so viewing the amazing artwork and dedication these pieces have while emoting a message of peace and closure reminds me that we too have a message to share, and we should embrace it while we can.”

Here’s the video for “Descend”.

In A Darkened Room is CJ Duron (vox/guitars), Svia Svenlava (bass) and Kandi Hardee (piano/synth).

If you want to see the band live at work, here are their upcoming shows:

  • March 31 with Haunt Me – Paper Tiger SATX
  • May 11 with CHANT – Fuel Bar, SATX
  • June 29 with Final Sound – Elysium ATX
  • July 28 Dark Castle Festival – Louisiville, KY

Here’s the aforementioned “Sorrows” album.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
