Beware of Darkness formed in 2010 after Kyle Nicolaides met Tony Cupito at one of Kyle's shows in downtown Los Angeles. The two began playing shows with various bass players until they met Daniel Curcio, who was visiting Santa Monica after finding out he had a long lost half brother living there. Not long after solidifying the lineup, Nicolaides signed a record deal with Bright Antenna Records and began opening up shows for rock legends such as Social Distortion as well as touring with indie act The Wombats.
In 2012, Beware of Darkness opened for Tegan and Sara, Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, Deftones and played at the 2012 SXSW Festival.
Four lyric videos for the tracks included on the Howl EP were released April 16, 2012 on the website of American Songwriter. The music video for the band's debut single "Howl" premiered on September 14, 2012 on Fuse.
In 2013 Beware of Darkness played the SXSW Festival and embarked on their first UK tour.
The band's debut record, entitled Orthodox, was released on May 7, 2013 in the United States.
Throughout the month of July 2013, Beware of Darkness will be the opening band for Smashing Pumpkins' European Tour.
