Darren Charles King (born June 25, 1982) is the drummer for the band Mutemath.[1] He also played drums for the New Orleans-based Christian rock band Earthsuit for a short time.[2] King is well known for intense drum beats that showcase a vast amount of energy.[citation needed] 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.[3]

King grew up in the small town of Marshfield, Missouri. On July 24, 2010, he married Stacy DuPree, vocalist and keyboardist of Eisley.[citation needed] They have one daughter named Scarlett who was born two hours after King returned from a show in Baton Rouge.[citation needed]

On the 27th of October 2010 Switchfoot's Song "Yet" was released for free download as a remix by Darren King.[4]

He also remixed Hillsong United's "Love is War" which was released on their White Album (the remix project) in 2014.
