After 10 years lost on a hard drive, Dark Houses’ only recorded album is finally out through The Lost Music Club.
Dark Houses features Hope of The States lyricist and vocalist Sam Herlihy, drummer Simon Jones and bassist, Paul Wilson, along with guitarist Johnny Winter. With the musical complexities and multi-tracked instrumentals that Hope of The States fans will find familiar, Dark Houses never played live. By the time label interest and a release looked likely, the band were already moving on and ready to go on to form The Northwestern. Dark Houses remained an interim project and the album was shelved.
