NEAR DARK are a 4-piece female fronted rock/metal band from Coventry.

CHERYL - Vocals.
CRAIG - Guitar.
KEVIN - Bass.
JOHN - Drums.

Taking our musicals influences form artists as diverse as Alanis
Morrisette through to Slayer via the Misfits, Iron Maiden, Disturbed,
Machine Head, Pantera, Black Stone Cherry and Metallica (pre Load)- to
name but a few, we have created a unique groove driven sound.

NEAR DARK formed in November 2007 after Kevin spilt from a
previous band due to musical differences. He asked his wife Cheryl if
she would like to put her voice to good use and then went on the search
for a guitarist and drummer.

Mark was recruited in late December 2007, and after trying a few drummers we found Chris who joined us in March 2008.

In June 2008 we played our 1st gig at The Lord Raglan a.k.a The
Raggy in Exhall, Coventry, we surprised the crowd with our original
sound and the set went down really well.

Since then we have been a regular fixture on the local music
scene, playing at The Golden Cross, The Tuns, The Dog and Trumpet and
The General Wolfe in Coventry, we have also played further afield at
The Flapper and Firkin and Scruffy Murphy's in Brum, The Vic Bikers Bar in Coalville, The Old Angel in Nottingham and the Briddgehouse 2 in London as part of the Damsels of Destruction festival.

Last year we lost our original guitarist Mark, he moved to Canada
(the lucky sod!) After much interest and a few auditions, we found a
fantastic replacement in the form of Craig, who filled the spot
perfectly. He started gigging with us after only 4 weeks of joining the
band, playing his 1st gig at The Dog and Trumpet and has seamlessly
slotted into place as the 6-string destroyer of the band.

We recently parted ways with Chris, but have since recruited
ex-ManAkin/Bless The Bleeding Sky drummer John into our ranks, beating
Craig's record from joining to gigging after 8 days and 3 practices!

We have recorded a live demo CD of one of our many gigs at the
Golden Cross, and we will be hitting the studio soon to record a
broadcast quality demo, ready to start the next phase in NEAR DARK’s

You can find us on myspace at and on facebook at Near Dark Coventry
So come on over to the dark side...we've got pringles and everything!
