Justin Smith is a knowing and smirky smartass in Graf Orlock , but besides serving as a member of the perennial cinefreak grinders as well as the comparatively more straight-faced Ghostlimb, the guitarist also has the fires burning for another venture, Dangers.
The first Dangers LP Anger crash-landed in 2006 (stream it) and four years the later the band is preparing to unleash their second LP, Messy Isn't It (pictured above). Names after a suicide note by writer Richard Brautigan, Justin Smith will release the record via his own Vitriol Records imprint. Pre order that record now. Dangers recently dropped "Under The Affluence" at Decibel and have dropped a second track called "I'll Clap When I'm Impressed". Get both above.
Dangers isn't currently touring, but both Graf Orlock and Ghostlimb are.... in Japan. Their tour dates, as well as a few videos are below...
