About

Under Darkest Skies are an emotionally charged, heavy, melodic, groove filled original metal band. Based in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, USA...we have been described as "the perfect musical blending of "Clayman" era styled In Flames, with the aggressive attack of At The Gates, the musical melodies of Soilwork, and the emotion of Killswitch Engage. Yet, with the grooves and catchy hooks of Machine Head and Pantera" We have recently grabbed the attention of and began work with a management/development team that has worked with bands such as Whitechapel, Chelsea Grin, Emmure, and others. We have label interest and opportunity and are looking to seize upon this chance to take the next step in our musical careers.

To achieve our goal of being able to bring our music to a much larger audience through the opportunities that being signed to a record label offer, we first need to nail down this initial stage. Basically the first step towards our main objective and goal, and that is being able to get and deliver a quality product to not only the few labels already showing interest, but the chance to draw or attract more. That is where you can give us a hand by donating to our cause. We are currently trying to raise the minimum needed to get the entire ball rolling. Your donation will help us get into a professional recording studio, and help us be able to record and complete a professionally produced EP.

We began this journey back in May of 2018, and it has grown to the point now where we now have a legitimate chance of achieving childhood dreams. But...since it has happened so fast, and with none of us in the band being independently wealthy...we are here hoping that you all will give us a helping hand in reaching our ultimate goal of being able to bring our music to a vast and wide audience globally. Every dollar counts, and we are offering up some rewards in return which include - signed, original sets of lyrics. Limited edition, engraved Under Darkest Skies CD boxes. Personal vocal, guitar, and bass lessons, and a a chance to have your name included in a very special thank you list within the sleeve/booklet of our debut album.

The opportunities that are in front of us, are of the very rare variety. We are hoping to be able to bring these opportunities to life, and with your help, WE WILL!!! All bands are essentially no one without the support of their fans, and our growing family of fans mean everything to us. We hope that you will throw your support behind us and help us achieve this goal that we have been after since we were children. Under Darkest Skies collectively thank you!

Risks and challenges

This section asks about risks or challenges...our main challenge at this point is raising the required funding to get the ball rolling. Which means, getting into a professional recording studio, and beginning work with our management and development team. That work is recording an EP and music videos, basically overall branding, which will be shopped to numerous record labels in the fall. The risk is losing this opportunity presented to us. Everyone has dreams, we have a chance at finally achieving ours and are hopeful that we will receive the support and help needed to fulfill this dream.
