Founded by former THIN LIZZY member Darren Wharton and guitarist Vinny Burns (known today as guitarist of acts like TEN, ASIA or BOB CATLEY, the British act DARE gained a great reputation among fans of first class melodic rock. The debut 'Out of the Silence' was highly acclaimed both by press and audience and could have been the first chapter of a great success story - yet then the era of Grunge was dawning. The second output 'Blood from the Stone', released in the same year as an album by the name of 'Nevermind', failed to provide the final commercial breakthrough in spite of any of its remarkable qualities. While the band's career was on hiatus for a while, DARE never really split or gave up - and finally, the year of 1998 marked the comeback of Wharton and his companions along with their unique sound enriched with celtic melody lines to be heard on the impressive 'Calm before the Storm'. This summer, DARE have released the impressive new album 'Sacred Ground', and in summer 2017 they'll return to Germany to be part of our ROCK OF AGES band line up!
