Going Dark

 Livingston, New Jersey, USA

Going Dark is a ROCK power trio from Livingston, N.J., ages 12, 14, and 15. They write all of their songs, are incredibly talented, and must be seen live to be believed. Bringing ROCK back to the kids with quality songs and no computer tricks.


Going Dark “…has done more in their short careers than many have in their whole existence”.
“These guys are bound to be the next heart-throbbing sensation”.

Going Dark is comprised of lead singer and bassist Oliver Shaw 12, guitarist LJ Militello 14, and drummer Alex Fogg 16. They have played The Bamboozle Festival with Foo Fighters (2012) and Motley Crue (2011), Mountain Jam with Gov’t Mule, performed on television networks NBC and Fox, opened for Sebastian Bach and Big Time Rush, and so much more. “Their music is straight, on the rocks, classic rock with a modern coil. Many of their lyrics deal with current topics and are catchy as all hell”, says Maria Mar, WRAT-FM/The Aquarian Weekly.

What the Music Industry is saying about Going Dark
“These guys are f@#%ing bad ass!” Vince Neil - lead singer, Motley Crue

“We were blown away by what we just saw!” John DiEsposito - Founder, The Bamboozle Festival

“…one of the youngest bands I have ever worked with, Going Dark…has done more in their short careers than many have in their whole existence…. These guys are bound to be the next heart-throbbing sensation…. Their positively bubbling energy throughout each live set is infectious and melodic.” Maria Mar - WRAT-FM, The Aquarian Weekly, August 22, 2012

“When I was first informed they were coming in I thought in the back of my mind "please don’t be young poppy the same as everyone else music"...and boy was I in luck! These guys are absolutely not like any other younger band out there; they stand alone with their talent and sound!” Lindsay Klein - WDHA-FM, January 25, 2012

“Going Dark does hard rock in its purest form. It's quite shocking just how talented these kids are
and how accurate they can capture a sound far older than themselves…”
