Victory Records signs Darkness Divided

Tuesday, January 28, 2014 8:07 AM PT


Official press release:

Victory Records is proud to announce the signing of San Antonio's Darkness Divided. The four-piece are quickly making a name for themselves through heavy DIY touring – including major festivals such as Cornerstone and Sonshine. Watch the announcement video here:





Vocalist Gerard Mora comments, "We are incredibly stoked to be a part of the Victory Records Family! We've always been fans of Victory's roster, and it's a blessing to be included with the many talented bands that Victory has worked with over the years. We are currently writing our debut full length, and we have some really cool tour opportunities on the horizon. We can't wait to show everyone what we've been writing and playing in a ton of new places very soon!"

Darkness Divided will be hitting the road this spring, before entering the studio to work on their Victory Records debut. Tentatively scheduled for a late summer release, 2014 is set to be a breakout year for Darkness Divided.

I've seen this band play before. Surprisingly tight set. Backed!

These dudes all look like they're brothers. Cool tunes though!

Bad music on a bad label. A match made in their version of christian heaven. No gays up there for sure. Nergal is not happy. Nor is Happy Tom. Denim demon.

A lot of bands do this, but when you do it well it's still fcking awesome. Nice!

anonymous

I don't believe there are gays in heaven... but that's because I don't believe in heaven. I'll still mosh to this. Cool band

anonymous

Dude a couple posts up:
So you believe in a Heaven that Nergal is stoked on? Wouldn't that just be no heaven? Your posts make no sense.

Cool band. Not down with Jesus, but I'm down to hit the pit to this.

Very sweaty barn... or attic... apparently. Cool sound though! Could be cool!

Played with these dudes last year. Really damn heavy and really nice dudes. Congrats!

anonymous

I've seen these guys play twice now. Both times they killed it! Really heavy band. Stoked on this.

anonymous

Cool band.

I notice my band keeps popping up on this site everytime there's a Victory records article. It is getting ridiculous. (Islander for those wondering). Try a little decorum.

anonymous

DD is a cool band! Saw them play last year. They were super heavy and put on a great show! Very cool.

who the fck is islander and why do people hate them so much?

anonymous

The only way Islander can get any attention is when its members cry and complain on this website.

anonymous

Damn! This band shreds! Pretty cool.

Also, fck the LG trolls, I like Islander.

anonymous

Cool song. Hopefully the rest is this good.

All these positive post about this band are from the same poster. Lol.

who the fck is islander and why do people hate them so much?

"We are putting our city on the map and we've got original sound. Victory has promised to hook us up too. We got H.R. to do a guest spot on our new joint. More than any of you trollers can say about your lives. We're staying inspired."

This is why.

"Well at least we'll be a big name one day and leave our mark on the hardcore scene and be a hub for the Greenville area and pioneers for bands coming behind us. We have already been an inspiration to kids in the scene here. We'll continue too. We found a home at victory and they're going to help us."

This is also why.

just cannot believe how many times Tony has posted in this thread hyping this ass rangers up.

anonymous
1/28/2014 6:33:30 PM
Huge cash reward to anyone who can explain to me anything these guys are doing that sets them apart from every other "hardcore" band to come out over the last 10 years. Anybody? Email me. $$$

Anyone digging this is 20 or younger. If not, end yourself.

Somethings wrong here. I was trying to watch an August Burns Red video and got this instead.

anonymous
1/28/2014 9:46:53 PM
Islander is pissed these guys are getting more attention than them

anonymous
1/28/2014 9:47:44 PM
WHY DID THE BAND POST SO MANY COMMENTS ABOUT THEMSELVES IN HERE AND THINK PEOPLE WOULDN'T NOTICE?

anonymous
1/29/2014 12:23:46 AM
^^
Exactly. These comments are the kind from the dickwads that frequent something like theprp

Count the number of times the word 'cool' is used. Vocabulary flip. Career-flip. Everything flip

anonymous

making a prediction right now:

victory is milking their christian audience of all their parents cash then they will drop them after 1 album maybe 2.

wait for it...

This is actually pretty good. I can see that either being August Burns Red big or being a big flop.
The recent Victory signings makes me want to hate them less, wtf.
