Darren Charles King (born June 25, 1982) is the drummer for the band Mutemath. He also played drums for the New Orleans-based Christian rock band Earthsuit for a short time. King is well known for intense drum beats that showcase a vast amount of energy. In concert he is often seen wearing a pair of headphones gaffer-taped to his head for foldback, which has been previously done by The Who drummer, Keith Moon.
King grew up in the small town of Marshfield, Missouri. On July 24, 2010, he married Stacy DuPree, vocalist and keyboardist of Eisley. They have one daughter named Scarlett who was born two hours after King returned from a show in Baton Rouge.
He also remixed Hillsong United's "Love is War" which was released on their White Album (the remix project) in 2014.
King played additional instrumentation on the Kanye West and Travis Scott collaboration "Piss on Your Grave" which was released on Scott's debut album Rodeo (2015), as well as on another Kanye West song, "Real Friends".
