DRKWAV is Skerik (saxophones), John Medeski (keyboards) and Adam Deitch (drums). The three master musicians have come together for The Purge, an entirely uncompromising album debut that delves deep into the psychedelic corners of the human psyche. The recording was co-produced and mixed by venerated studio wizard Randall Dunn.

DRKWAV conjure a wall of intricately detailed sound as each of The Purge's eight tracks surge and swell in a cinematic overture. True to its name, the trio revels in the pitch black, yet continually discover beauty and shed light through sonic exploration.

DRKWAV The Purge will be released February 24 on Royal Potato Family as a limited edition, multi-color vinyl, double-LP set, as well as on CD and digital formats.

Risks and challenges

People of EARTH. Thank you for perusing our much needed endeavor. We did not start this campaign in the beginning because we didn't know that this would become the DRKWAV that you see before you. We had no idea what would happen when we began, but 3 years later we now know exactly what this is and are ready to deliver a fully realized, fully executed concept of unique darkness. So there will be no waiting, no wondering, all is completed and ready to transport to you, be ready to access that which is unseeable, that which is DRKWAV...... Gracias.........
