Tommy Dark found the singer he was looking for. She was in California. So he packed his guitar and leather pants and he left New York City. Before leaving NYC, Tommy Dark played lead guitar in Voltaire's band The Oddz.

Saints Of Ruin, began in San Francisco at the beginning of 2007. Tommy and singer-bass player, Ruby Ruin began writing together and creating music that fused Gothic Metal with Power Pop. Very catchy hooky stuff. Adding classically trained John Paul Young on keyboards, immediately infused an element of Industrial music to an already original sounding mix of music Gothic Industrial Pop, was now born in the Saints Of Ruin !!! They were soon joined by Michael Dominic Broadus. Kick-ass pounding and perfect timing. And the latest addition: as of spring of 2010, Kat Downs replaced John Paul as the newest Saint of the Keys.
