2016, Fronted by singer songwriter Darren Wharton (who first rose to fame in the early eighties playing keyboards with legendary Irish rock band Thin Lizzy), Dare are one of the most respected and innovative melodic rock bands working today, gaining cult status among AOR fans throughout Europe, the UK and the world. The band's debut 1989 album OUT OF THE SILENCE is still widely regarded today as one of the all time great AOR albums. Wharton's style of song writing, modern anthemic rock with Celtic overtones, coupled with the bands powerful live performances have gained Dare the reputation as a bright force on the British rock scene. SACRED GROUND is the bands much awaited 7th studio album; a modern classic, original, yet instantly addictive. It features some of Wharton's most mature song writing to date. Thought provoking and passionate... whilst still retaining a dark rock edge. As the band's worldwide fan base eagerly anticipate the new album, SACRED GROUND is destined to be another classic album by Dare.
