Dark Circles is the first and only studio album by The Devils, released by Tape Modern-Fullfill on 15 July 2002 in the UK and by Cutting Edge on 6 May 2003 in Japan.

About the albumEdit

This is an album by Stephen Duffy and Nick Rhodes, two members of the first incarnation of Duran Duran in 1978. That line-up was Stephen Duffy (songwriter/vocalist), Nick Rhodes (keyboards). John Taylor (guitar) and Simon Colley (bass guitar, clarinet).

In 1999, Duffy came across an old tape recording of a live Duran Duran concert from 1979. Shortly afterwards, Rhodes and Duffy met by chance at an Armani fashion show, and began talking about the old music. A few months later they took to the studio.

The resulting album is an odd blend of past and future. The lyrics are dark, arty, and often inspired by Duffy's esoteric reading habits; the music is quirky and futuristic, but it is the electronic, robotic-tinged future of 1979, breathed back into life more than twenty years later.
