I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness formed during the summer of 2001 in Austin, Texas. Members past and current have been involved with previous Austin bands Windsor for the Derby, Paul Newman, Glorium, and Salute the Curse. Utilizing a simple lineup of three guitars, bass, drums, and the occasional keyboard, the band picked up stylistically where previous projects had left off, featuring intricate guitar interplay and simple but effective song structures. The previous two years have been spent touring and writing music for their first full length LP, Fear Is On Our Side, an understandably more dark and gritty affair than their debut. 2006 will be a year full of touring, writing, and recording new material.
