The Darts take flight from their Bat Cave lair deep in the wilds of Arizona to deliver their best album to date, Snake Oil.
The Darts have returned with Snake Oil, their most accomplished recording to date with a much fuller sound than any Darts disc before. That sound courtesy of their longtime collaborator Bob Hoag and some remote control co-production wizardry from Jello Biafra himself.
Featuring the return of Nicole Laurnne on vocals and Farfisa and Hammond organ, Christina Nunez on Bass/Vocals, and Meliza Jackson on Guitars/Vocals, Snake Oil is the debut of new drummer Mary Rose Gonzales. The result? Snake Oil comes out smoking as if this band has been in a pressure cooker throughout the pandemic. Expect the wider sound and sparkle of Nicole and Cristina’s previous band, The Love Me Nots (which was also recorded by the brilliant Bob Hoag), but with way more raunch. And Nicole’s voice has never sounded better.
Snake Oil is for fans of agile, sultry vocals and beefy vintage rhythm sections paired with razor-tone guitars. This snake oil was concocted to remedy the most unaffected and stiff-legged garage rockers out there!
The Darts formed in 2016 with the goal of getting some solid female musicians together to make gaRAGE punk rock & roll noise, see the world, and basically have a super-fun slumber party every night. They are now hands down one of the best garage bands in the world.
