- Toured across North America in 2016, performing with Dirty Heads, Through the Roots, illScarlett, USS, Walk off the Earth & more
Released their 2016 EP on NVRNF (Canada) and LAW Records (US)
Skillfully combining the best of hip-hop, reggae, trap, and rock with earworm hooks, Toronto's Darenots are the genre busting sound of the city. Forming in 2015, vocalists James Mascola and Rev, along with CJ Hinds and Swav Pior of illScarlett, are a veteran lineup that produces an unforgettable live experience which intuitively marries contagious electronic beats with driven guitars and body blasting rhythm.
Between party anthems like "Heavyweight" and "Good Good" and the chill grooves of "911" and "Focus to Faded", The Now Is Truth is a sophisticated debut EP that effortlessly moves bodies to the beat. Released in early 2016 on NVRNF/Law Records, the ‘ep' features collaborations with Cam Hunter (Down With Webster), Kaleo Wassman (Pepper) & Grieves (Rhymesayers Ent). Since the release, Darenots have performed to packed houses alongside Hollerado, illScarlett, July Talk, DZ Deathrays, USS, Walk Off The Earth, Pepper and The Dirty Heads.
2017 sees no slowing down as the band gears up to release new music and continues bringing that ‘Good Good' to crowds across Canada and the US.
