In the tradition of trailblazing bands like Pink Floyd, The Flaming Lips and Broken Social Scene, Los Angeles based rock band P L a N E T S has put together a debut album that plays like a soundtrack to an epic dark dream. TheDarkWoods, an utterly unique record filled with cinematic landscapes, psychological terror, soaring musical compositions, and an obvious love for theatrics will be released just in time for Halloween at local record stores and through iTunes and Amazon on October 16, 2012.
Known for their theatrical live shows in Los Angeles, P L a N E T S, who originated in northwestern Montana in 2006, boldly bend the boundaries between rock band and theatre troupe. A P L a N E T S show could be described as some sort of eerie garage-rock opera, featuring immersive atmospheres with dancers, actors and shadow puppetry coming at you from all directions, all in cahoots with the music. Always basing their material around a place, P L a N E T S have turned their most recent live show, TheDarkWoods, into a full fledged concept rock album.
Girls are in hoods…in TheDarkWoods.
