For over a decade, the founding members of The Killing Daylights have been performing as a duo, trio, quartet, quintet-- under several different names. The songs have carried through and evolved with each incarnation. Casting Shadows, The Killing Daylights' first full length studio album, is essentially a "best of" album from the huge bank of songs they've written and perfected throughout the years.
The best kept secret in rock and roll. Known for their creative covers and catchy originals, The Killing Daylights are making their mark on the Virginia music scene-- one club at a time. Focused on writing and recording meaningful, yet radio-worthy songs-- power couple Beau Powell and Chelsea Kerwath's originals have a quality unmatched by most underground bands. Heavily influenced by Counting Crows, Death Cab for Cutie, The New Pornographers, and The Beatles-- The Killing Daylights have a universal appeal to rock fans of all ages.
