At first glance, I bet you thought was shutting down the blog with all of my poorly written posts, yinz can’t get that lucky. In fact, what DJ Deep recently uncovered was that the Austin, Texas indie-goth band, that possess the fun moniker I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness, have risen from an eight year hiatus, seriously!
ILYBICD released the follow-up to their 2006 debut LP Fear Is On Our Side back on October 28, and yours truly completely missed it. My sincere apology goes out to all of the ILYBICD fans out there for overlooking this historic occasion. The sophomore release is titled Dust, and the group recently shared video is for the track “You Are Dead To Me,” which you can view or choose darkness below.
I came across this band back in 2003 when they dropped their selt-titled EP, and then I completely got into them in more ways than one in 2006. Since then, the band’s name has taken on more of the focus than the actual music.
The band recently played their first live show in over 5 years when they opened for none other than …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead on October 30th in Austin. You can’t make this shit up. Next, a couple of supporting slots for Spoon later this month in Houston and Dallas. This blog will keep you updated on upcoming ILYBICD tour dates.
Allow me to take this opportunity to add I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness to my Coachella 2015 Perfect Poster Wish List.
