Having been premiered yesterday by Tom Ravenscroft on BBC 6 Music, Darkstar have shared ‘Stoke The Fire’, the third track to be taken from the band’s forthcoming album, ‘Foam Island’.

Demonstrating the more "up-beat" side to the album, James Young from the band says; "Stoke The Fire is probably the most immediate and accessible track from Foam Island, built around quite an unorthodox bass line. It builds and loops - with the verses becoming choruses, and the instrumental evolving into a cacophony of chromatic percussion, synth drones and percussion."

To coincide with the release, Darkstar have also announced a series of in-store performances at independent record stores across the uk.
