The Darcys self-titled A&C debut is available now.

The first of three planned full-lengths from the much-buzzed about Toronto band can be downloaded for free digitally at thedarcys.ca and purchased on gorgeous 180-gram vinyl from GalleryAC.com

Hear the album that Ben Rayner of The Toronto Star called "a monstrously tuneful prog rock epic that improbably finds common ground between Radiohead and Steely Dan."

"The Darcys bring a level of vision and maturity to their sophomore effort that is breathtaking... almost symphonic grandeur... Downright stunning..." - Globe&Mail

"A serious contender to next year’s Polaris Prize, The Darcys is a superb achievement, both meditated and meditative." - Hour Montreal

"These guys have a serious knack for creating massive, lushly layered soundscapes punctuated by fuzzy guitars and ethereal falsetto." - Uptown Magazine

"Here is a band that could easily be shortlisted for a future Polaris Prize." - CBC Radio3

"A band that is clearly ready to make some noise of its own." - Spinner

The Darcys will play a handful of regional shows during the balance of the year before commencing an extensive tour schedule in 2012.
