The Best Band You Might Not Be Listening To: dale


It’s been less than two years since the 5-person rock band dale was formed, and they’ve already begun to make a splash in the Los Angeles area. Formed on the campus of the University of Southern California, dale combines some hard rock roots with superb hooks and a conservatory education; a formula that churns out good tune after good tune. Your chance to say “I knew them when” may be running out quickly, so take the time to listen through these young guys’ electric stuff. Fans of Neon Trees and Jack White can find where the two meet when they take a shot at dale.

If you think you have a band that should be featured on Best Bandcontact us and tell us why!
