DARKEST HOUR To Enter Studio In September

DARKEST HOUR, who have been a unit for twenty years, completed a crowdfunding campaign for their ninth album. The Washington, D.C.-based band exceeded its initial goal of $50,000 by nearly $20,000. The band is pleased to announce the next step in the creation process for the album. DARKEST HOUR will enter GodCity Studio in Massachusetts to record the effort with producer Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE) from September to October 2016.

"We really want to focus on the playing for this album," said DARKEST HOUR guitarist Mike Schleibaum. "We want bring the energetic, raw, emotion we exude live to tape this time. We love to jam and riff all day and we feel Kurt's unique style of producing will complement this perfectly. Also, it doesn't hurt that we completely respect and trust him as both a friend and musician, meaning we feel this monumental task of bringing another DARKEST HOUR album to life will rest well in his hands. So with our sights set on Boston for this September we will get back to the riff dojo and start woodshed'n these jams!"

The band also launched a new pre-order page.

DARKEST HOUR's self-titled album was released in August 2014 via Sumerian Records. The CD was recorded at Oceanic Recording with producer Taylor Larson.
