Freshly Printed: The Darcys Warring Poster

September 21, 2013Band Posters, Poster Prints, Print Department

New Poster for the Darcys latest album Warring.

THE DARCYS are an art rock band from Toronto comprised of Jason Couse [vocals, guitar, keys], Wes Marksell [drums], Michael le Riche [guitar, synth, vocals] and Dave Hurlow [bass].

The band’s 2013 studio album, Warring, represents its third release on Arts & Crafts and the final installment in a trilogy of albums that includes T h e D a r c y s [2011] and A J A [2012].

Warring was produced by Tom Mcfall and mixed by Dave Schiffman. The album was written over three years and recorded in Toronto during the final six months of 2012 with a focus on sonic detail inspired by studio opuses of the 1970s.

Of the album and title, the band says:

“Warring is moving forward. It’s learning in motion. Competition and survival, letting go to persevere. It is anxiety about the future and the triumph of life in the moment. It’s victory on will alone, the force that eradicates failure as an option.”

Two colour 18″ x 24″ poster on cougar cover.
A selection of prints are available for sale in the storefront for $35.00

A commercial illustrator since 1996, Jason has created work for advertising, editorial, packaging and book publishing clients internationally.

His style ranges from realism to exaggeration, usually emphasizing the figure, and a certain degree of humour or caricature. Jason is often asked to emulate a specific genre of illustration, such as movie posters, pulp covers or retro style advertising. His fondness for pop culture, especially movies and toys often creep into his work.
