The lively country group debuts the music video for “Dark Days” exclusively with C&I.
The song: “Dark Days” is off Robbie Walden Band’s third album, When the Rooster Crows, available now.
About the band Consisting of singer Robbie Walden, drummer Gabe Burdett, guitarist John Coker, pedal-steel player Dan Tyack, and bassist Blake Fleming, the Robbie Walden Band blend Texas red dirt, outlaw country, and soul for high-energy jam-band tunes.
Walden’s take: “‘Dark Days’ is about the ending of a rocky relationship, while living bitterly with your pain, kicking them to the curb in a spiteful manner, over the broken heart you blame them for. It’s a gritty and in-your-face fast-tempo song, and between John’s Bakersfield-influenced chicken-pickin’ guitar licks and Diego on sax, this performance is reminiscent of Merle Haggard’s ‘Working Man Blues’ with our own modern twist.”
About the video: “‘Dark Days’ is one of our songs we love playing live as a band,” Walden says. “It’s high-energy and you can never go wrong with a fast four-on-the-floor beat. This video was taken live at Perham Hall, a really large and fun venue in Zillah, Washington.”
Why we like it: Listening to the Robbie Walden Band is thrilling, but getting to see them in their atmosphere during a live performance spreads the cool contagion of their undeniable energy.
