Slingshot Dakota is an American band from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.


Slingshot Dakota formed in Long Island in 2003 as a three-piece, issuing their debut, Keener Sighs, in 2004. At the time, the group was composed of Comando, along with Pat Schramm (of the band Latterman) and Jeff Cunningham. In the spring of 2005, Schramm was replaced by Patterson. In the fall of 2006, Cunningham left the band, and the band remained a two-piece. In November of 2007, the band released its sophomore effort, Their Dreams Are Dead, but Ours Is the Golden Ghost!.[1] The group's third full-length, Dark Hearts, was released in November of 2012, after the group signed with Topshelf Records.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8]
