NEW DATES TBA
Dark Beauty Debuts Cinematic Rock at The Stone Church with Stratospheerius and Dreadnaught
For the first time since relocating to Portsmouth last year, Dark Beauty will perform their cinematic rock at the Stone Church in Newington, NH on Saturday, October 1 at 8 PM. Dark Beauty mixes elements of progressive rock, classical music, contemporary hard rock, dance and opera to support the original dark theatrical tales that are weaved through all of their music. The songs are complex and rich, yet their focus on memorable melodies, story-based lyrics, and lean instrumental sections broaden Dark Beauty’s appeal.
The band will be playing selections from their debut album Fall from Grace as well as its follow-up Between Sixes and Sevens. Both albums are part of an eventual trilogy that tells the story of the Dark Angel, her fall from grace, and struggles to return to the light. Liz takes on the role of The Dark Angel while performing, and the character changes from meek to powerful as the story progresses. While she’s passionate about the music, Liz says “it’s really all about the story. I want to pull the audience into The Dark Angel’s world.”
Dark Beauty is proud to be performing alongside Stratospheerius and Dreadnaught as part of Sonic Voyage Fest. Sonic Voyage Fest’s purpose is to create a night of music that dazzles with virtuosity, ignites the senses, and pushes boundaries. Writes ProgSheet’s editor John A. Wilcox, “Sonic Voyage Fest was like General Tso’s chicken: spicy, filling, and I already want more!”
Led by electric violinist/vocalist Joe Deninzon, who has been called “The Jimi Hendrix of the violin,” Stratospheerius have showcased their “frenzied mélange of progressive rock, jazz fusion and funkabilly” throughout the world. Dreadnaught recently celebrated their 25th anniversary of their acrobatic, intricate compositional and instrumental interplay combined with a down-to-earth, wry approach to performance. Relix magazine called them “the country’s best ‘pure’ prog-rock combo.”
Both of Dark Beauty’s albums are available on Spotify and most major streaming services. Vocalist Liz Tapia and guitarist / musical director Bryan Zeigler are available for interviews live or via email.
