Dark Side Cowboys now release the video for “Dust III”. Breathtakingly beautiful views of the homelands of the Cowboys merge with the mesmerizing soundscapes, as the spectacular scenery speaks out to the audience.
The video was shot by Joachim Ljungquist. It shows the magnificent landscapes and surroundings by the river of Ammerån, the county of Jamtland in northern Sweden. It certainly is a music video like no other.
Gunslinger Jonah has been on a quest of finding the riders, but what he found was not all what he was looking for… Walking by the river he follows the old trail where the raftsmen used to work. Who, or what can be found at the ancient trail that leads through the forest alongside the river? The search goes on as autumn is closing in..
The past year has seen a number of compilations (online and on CD) featuring the Dark Side Cowboys. On russian label Darkpage a mix of the new song “I Would Never” is featured. At Sea Compilations released “La Danse Macabre vol II” featuring an exclusive mix of “One Moment In Time” and KF Kretsen released the single version of the same track on “Mixat 2017”. More to come as DSC will join the “United World Underground” collection by M&E this autumn.
We can already disclose that M&E will re-release the old demotape collection “Review” (this time digitally remastered – the original was released on cassette).

Out now is a new live in concert video with Dark Side Cowboys, performing “One Moment In Time”. It was recorded live at Babel venue in Malmö, Sweden on april 14:th as DSC performed at the RTSI-event “Make A Noise Malmö”, to raise awarness about the RTSI-initiative and also to raise funds for The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
This is actually the first official live in concert video ever by Dark Side Cowboys, although there has been a semi-live video released earlier for “Believe” and of course a bunch of bootlegs and other recorded performances. Still, this would be the first official release.
More songs from this concert will follow on the official Dark Side Cowboys Youtube-channel!
“Forced out of the light” comes the third single from the fortcoming album with Dark Side Cowboys. “Dust III” is as the name suggests the third part of a suit of songs, where earlier releases in the series has been “Dust” (1996) and “Dust II” (2011). Now the third part is released as part of the forthcoming DSC-album. The song is a lot more atmospheric and laid back than the earlier two single releases and shows the wide spectre of the sound from the album.
The single is released online and available on most major platforms, but there will also be a limited edition digipak with exclusive artwork (available for preorder now) for the hardcore fans.
