Darkbuster is a punk rock band hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, known largely for their songs about the joys of heavy drinking, which have earned them a strong following in the American Northeast. The band was formed by singer/guitarist Lenny Lashley, drummer Eric Edmonston, and bassist Mike Gurley in 1996. In 1997 the band recorded a nine–song demo tape, and in 2000 released their debut album, 22 Songs You'll Never Want To Hear Again! The album instantly cemented their reputation in the Boston punk scene, filled with songs about beer, being a loser, and even a few juvenile–but–hilarious potshots at other local bands (and even the group's own members).In 2001 Danny O'Halloran replaced Edmonston on drums and they recorded five songs for a split EP with Tommy and the Terrors. In 2004 they began recording a new album. The new album was released on the bands own label early in 2005. The CD entitled "A Weakness For Spirits", strikes a balance between the more mature subject matter of the split EP and the cheap laughs of the first album, while displaying Lashley's knack for writing concise, catchy punk rock songs to fine effect. Indeed, Darkbuster embodies the concept that "brevity is the soul of wit" since many of the band's funniest songs clock in at under a minute in length. In May 2005, Lashley injured his left hand in a construction accident, leaving him unable to play guitar for several months. As a result they brought Amy Griffin (Raging Teens/Avoid One Thing) onboard as a second guitarist. In May 2006 the band signed with I Scream Records, which re–released A Weakness For Spirits in August 2006. Currently Darkbuster working on it's follow up to "A Weakness for Spirits".
