DARKEST HOUR: New Album Title, Release Date Announced

Washington D.C.-based metallers DARKEST HOUR have started work on the long-awaited follow-up to 2005's "Undoing Ruin" at the Warehouse in Vancouver, Canada. The new effort, to be called "Deliver Us", is expected to be released July 10 on Victory Records. The band will follow recording by doing four U.S. dates in April with JOB FOR A COWBOY.

"The Warehouse in Vancouver, BC hasn't rocked this hard since AC/DC, NINE INCH NAILS and BRYAN ADAMS recorded here," declared DARKEST HOUR drummer Ryan Parrish.

"I expect the new record to be a subversive tool of godless Communism that will break down the morals among youth!," added the always understated bassist Paul Burnette.

"It's the crispiest, most savory DARKEST HOUR to date," Metal Chef producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) stated. "We turned up the monitors and my head exploded."

Last seen picking up stray pieces of Devin's cerebellum was guitarist Mike Schleibaum, who added, "Working with Devin this time has been sick as hell. We have worked long hours on these songs and, honestly, our hands, legs and bodies haven't hurt from playing so much since we can remember. We are truly stoked to present these songs on this record. It is some of our most complex, melodic, brutal, and aggressive songs to date. There's some punk, metal, thrash, shred, prog, and even a little of Devin Townsend's special sauce mixed in this metal gumbo!"

DARKEST HOUR fans can get an exclusive glimpse into the recording studio in the first of a series of "webisodes" that's being broadcast on Victory Records' proprietary focused digital media player, VictorStream.
