Stormy California is the energetic, upbeat, new wave / post-punk brain child of vocalist Daniel Dart (most known as front man of Time Again) and guitarist Donal Finn. Ever since breaking onto the national music scene in 2006, Daniel Dart has proven himself over and over again to be one of the most prolific and bold songwriters of this generation.
Having already released four critically acclaimed, hard-hitting punk records with Time Again, and the blues/hard rock "Swapmeet Shakedown" record with Stormy California guitarist Donal Finn, it is no surprise that Dart once again breaks the tradition of playing one genre of music by teaming up with Dexter Holland of The Offspring and Nitro Records to bring you STORMY CALIFORNIA, a band that instantly grabs your attention with it's catchy melodies and energetic rhythms.
When asked about Stormy California, Dart's only reply is "I love this band. This is the band I am gonna be with for the next 20 years." With such a bold statement from such a ground breaking artist, Dart immediately sets our expectations high. And lucky for us, he does not disappoint.
To fully realize their creative prowess, Daniel Dart and Donal Finn enlisted bassist Jerry DiPhillipo and drummer Spencer Brock and devised a way of releasing a record that has never been done before, which is to release 4 different versions over 4 months that will eventually make up the final version of “Beg, Borrow or Steal.”
This first edition of "Beg, Borrow or Steal EP" will feature 4 songs from the band and one B-side. . . a dance remix that Daniel & Donal Finn (collectively known as producers The Riot Bros) produced especially for this limited edition “BEG VERSION” of the EP.
In addition to the previously mentioned first edition, three other versions of the EP will be released. The first 3 limited editoin EP versions will be available exclusively through Interpunk, and will be known as the "BEG version", "BORROW version" and "STEAL version". Only 100 copies of each version will be available and all will: be hand numbered by the band, have different colored art and CD, and 1 exclusive track (which will vary on each version). All Interpunk orders will also include an autographed limited edition poster as well as a limited edition sticker!
