Dark N Gritty Evolved


The Dark N Gritty Evolved WordPress theme is everything a musician, band or artist will ever need for managing their online site and turning it into a promotional powerhouse for their music.

Want your WordPress website to easily promote your mailing list to keep in touch with fans, make it easy to add and manage your discography, a platform to share your music, promote your tour and sell your merch through WooCommerce? Want your site to look as badass and put together as your music sounds?

Our re-designed and re-built WordPress musician theme now has retina (high-resolution) graphics ready for next-gen computers and monitors, a responsive design that looks & works great on tablets/phones and a new conversion optimized box on your homepage designed to get you more fans.

All the tried and tested favourites from our framework return like discography management, tons of visual style options, GigPress comes pre-styled, WooCommerce support, built in Twitter feed with ‘tweet’ and ‘like’ buttons and our original social media link-out selector.

Full-width Slider or Conversion Box

The slider is a gorgeous, full-width and responsive and you can even embed your latest hit on top of it through Vimeo, Youtube, or Soundcloud.

The conversion box keeps it simple and straightforward and only promotes one thing and promotes it really damn well. Put an engaging piece of content on the left like your latest single or video and on the right put newsletter sign-up with a reward like a free mp3 download, etc.

Customize everything without breaking a sweat

We’ve built-in 4 incredible backgrounds (check ’em on the demo) and visual details that are swappable so the theme will be beautiful out of the box while giving you control to match it to your style.

Still want to put your own spin on things? No problem.

Pick your own main & accent colours from a colour selector, upload your own logo & background (while keeping our sweet shadows/shading to keep it gritty). No CSS knowledge required.

Designed for desktops, tablets & phones

DNG:E doesn’t just shrink on to phones and tablets. It works just as well if not better on a mobile device than it does on a desktop or laptop.

We designed the theme from the ground up to work great on all devices so that everything would come together perfectly. Your fans are going to love keeping up to date with your music on their phones.
