South Wales heavy rockers AND THE SKY DARKENED release their explosive new
sophomore EP, Between Ghosts, on Friday 8th May, via all outlets. The
ascending foursome have also just set loose a stream of their new track, The
Darkened Await  – .

Formed in 2015 by long-time friends Ryan Lewis (Vocals/Guitar) and Ollie
Hansen (Guitar), AND THE SKY DARKENED have forged a powerful and dynamic
sound which pulls from many areas of contemporary and classic rock/metal.
The rising riff slayers revealed their debut EP, The Fracture, at the end of
2016. The record showcased the band’s shrewd ability to blend dark and
brooding Metallica and Alice In Chains-esque riffs with the more ambient and
challenging leanings of the likes of Tool. After solidifying their line up
with the additions of Matt “Animal” Thomas on drums and James O’Donovan on
bass in 2017 and 2019 respectively, the newly revitalised quartet hit the
road and laid siege throughout South Wales and beyond.

With a growing live reputation in full flow, AND THE SKY DARKENED commenced
work on their new EP, Between Ghosts, which continues to display the band’s
song-writing prowess. Ryan Lewis (Vocals/Guitars) states: “We are immensely
proud of this EP as it showcases all of our compositional strengths. It’s
our most focused work to date whilst still displaying our light and dark
sides. Its melody and brooding intensity are present throughout, with all
members playing a key part in forging the sonic framework of a powerful and
epic EP.” With a stunning EP in hand, a new music video on the way, and a
slew of live dates penned for the Spring, AND THE SKY DARKENED are set to
break through to the masses this year.
