In November 2011, Darkin received its first radio airplay on 93.7 WSTW's Hometown Heroes segment. The band's demo of Lose It All showcased the band's songwriting talent, though albeit rather raw recording quality.
In 2013, Darkin returned to Hometown Heroes' airwaves, this time with the fresh track: Sweet Aroma. Sweet Aroma featured the band's best songwriting yet. With a little more polish on their recordings, Darkin was sure to be a commercial success.
In April 2012, Darkin recorded an interview and several live song performances on 93.5 The Beach in Georgetown, Delaware. The version of Tired Eyes from that show featured perhaps the best vocal performance by Frank up to that point.
