Darling Dead was formed in Los Angeles, CA when four degenerates with a love of their vampire ways crossed paths and thought it would be a great idea to form a band. The early songs were in the vein of glam/punk with a goth influence. Following a long hiatus, the band got together in 2018 to work on new material in the goth/industrial/metal realm.

Darling Dead has adopted the term Black Autumn Core to describe the blend of post-punk, darkwave, modern metal, metalcore, industrial, black metal and aggrotech influencing the songs produced. 

Following a few lineup changes and a move from Los Angeles to Orlando, FL, the band now consists of original members Brandi Kates Mitternacht, and Johnny Astro with newer members Matthias Odense and Izzy Deadstil. Darling Dead released their debut album, Hollywood's Most Hated in June 2021. You are welcomed to check the band out live and listen to the music.
