Danava Spring Tour


"Epic sludge riffage and hallucinatory fervor... will no doubt be welcomed alongside treasured Sabbath and King Crimson LPs." -Entertainment Weekly

Danava will embark on a full national tour early this spring. On the road in support of UnonoU, Danava maintains a constant forward momentum by mixing head-nodding grooves with dense and intermittent freak-outs, brought to life with the fire of a thousand suns in the live setting. Their furiously driven precision is wielded by the commanding force of Sparkles, who takes the songs to war and destroys the audience with the band's dynamic glory.

Ancient Indian scriptures describe Danavas as a race of demons who banded together to revolt against the gods, only to be defeated and banished into the depths of the oceans for rest of time. Like the parable from which they take their name, Dusty Sparkles, Dell Blackwell, Buck Rothy, and Rockwell have joined forces as the virtuosic Danava. They have risen from the sea to wage war against the one-dimensional hard rock leftover from when Nu Metal laid its eggs a decade ago.
