Dave Harrington and Nicolas Jaar, the two artists who make up the American rock band Darkside, have shared “The Limit,” the second single to date off their upcoming Spiral album. The pair have been on a musical hiatus since the release of their debut LP Psychic in 2013 and Spiral will be out on July 23 on Matador Records.
“From the beginning, DARKSIDE has been our jam band. Something we did on days off. When we reconvened, it was because we really couldn’t wait to jam together again,” says Jaar in Spiral‘s press release. Harrington agrees, saying, “It felt like it was time again,” he said. “We do things in this band that we would never do on our own. DARKSIDE is the third being in the room that just kind of occurs when we make music together.”

Back in December, the band emerged to announce the existence of Spiral with “Liberty Bell” which SPIN covered here.
