Victory Records has announced the signing of San Antonio’s Darkness Divided. The four-piece is quickly making a name for itself through heavy DIY touring — including major festivals such as Cornerstone and Sonshine.
Darkness Divided vocalist Gerard Mora comments: “We are incredibly stoked to be a part of the Victory Records family!
“We’ve always been fans of Victory‘s roster, and it’s a blessing to be included with the many talented bands that Victory has worked with over the years.
“We are currently writing our debut full-length, and we have some really cool tour opportunities on the horizon.
“We can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been writing and playing in a ton of new places very soon!”
Darkness Divided is a Christian band from San Antonio, Texas. Combining elements from traditional Metal bands and modern-day Metalcore acts, the band offers an original and exciting sound in a rapidly-flourishing Metal scene.
Since releasing their first EP “Chronicles” [produced by Daniel Castleman] in May of 2012, the band’s most recent efforts are the singles ‘Redeemer’ and ‘Voyager’, both for which they have premiered music videos.
“Chronicles” album review quote:
“Yes, the Chronicles EP is metalcore and that label can carry a lot of negative connotations, but Darkness Divided do bring some variety to the sound that is a bit out of the norm and their latest singles show a further progression in sound that makes them a band worth checking out.”

With over 150 shows under their belts, Darkness Divided has developed an intense, high-energy live performance that has intrigued fans from clubs to festival stages across the United States, and has shared the stage with bands such as Haste The Day, Underoath & For Today. While touring and performing as often as possible, the band is also hard at work writing their first full-length album anticipated to be released Summer 2014.
