Columbia, MO-based Heavy Rock band Dark Below have delivered new single “Make Believe” along with an official video. The song was Produced by Malcolm Springer (Matchbox 20, Collective Soul, Fear Factory, Josey Scott) and was recorded at East Iris Studios in Nashville, TN.   

Dark Below’s Josh Campbell says:

‘Make Believe’ is a song about the power of imagination. I grew up without any siblings and spent a lot of time on my own – so I think it was inevitable for me to become a really imaginative person. What I learned is that your imagination has the ability to bring you out of really dark places… But it also has the ability to put you back there, if you aren’t careful.

The video for “Make Believe” was filmed by Tyler Gramke of Tygr Creative at Rose Music Hall in the band’s home town of Columbia, MO.

Campbell explains:

We’ve played a lot of shows at Rose over the last couple of years. We ended up doing two different shoots – one was just us playing along to the song and recording the video and the other was actual footage of us playing the song live a couple of weeks later. We love the energy we get from our hometown fans, and we feed it back to them.

The band is announcing new tour dates, beginning with a mid-July show at Rose Music Hall. Starting in September the band will be supporting Rehab and Scotty Austin (former lead singer of Saving Abel).  The band will be playing live throughout the Fall, with more tour dates being announced later this summer. 

The band released the single “Tense” in July of 2022, having previously released their self-titled EP in 2017, and the single “Halo” in 2019. They have toured, opening for Buckcherry, Saliva, Pop Evil, Smile Empty Soul, The Veer Union, and more.
