The Volclays (Formerly known as Dark Seas, and The Ghost Dance), are a group of high school buddies from San Diego, CA who have collaborated on several projects over the years. Kyle Wilcox (vocals), Dan Wilcox (guitar), Matt Jones (guitar & keys), Graham Boblit (drums), and Jack Patterson (bass), round out the family-like quintet.
Dynamic, wet, and kinda spooky: The Volclays have garnered die-hard support by throwing parties at their studio called, "Studio 33", playing house parties, and tireless bar work. The local scene that they have created and led has become a self-contained ecosystem that is truly unique.
Goth sensibilities drive a roots-inspired rhythm section that's laced with southwestern surf guitar and complimented by sweet sad vocals. These lads are a throwback into the future, blending sounds that can be described as Psych Surf, or Goth Pop. The Volclays deliver energetic performances that you'd be bummed to miss. They have helped support artists such as The Growlers, The Black Lips, Dead Meadow, Chelsea Wolfe, The Coathangers, SadGirl, Thee Commons, Tropa Magica, Travesura, Allah-Las, The Entrance Band, Adult Books, The Relationship, White Mystery and many more.
Their debut EP, "All Night" came out January 1st, 2020 and was produced by Scott Montoya (The Growlers, Soft Palms), at COMA Studios in Long Beach, CA. The Sophomore EP "Love Songs for Lovers" came out on Valentines Day 2020, and their third EP, "Hope You're Miserable Too" came out in March of 2020
