DARKEST HOUR drummer Ryan Parrish states: "We're very excited about being a part of this year's 'Atticus Metal' tour!

"Getting the chance to play alongside today's sickest new bands is always a refreshing feeling for us.

"We can't wait to rock some new songs live for you guys off of our new record entitled 'The Human Romance', which is available on February 22. It definitely will be a tour you don't want to miss."

Atticus Black Director of Marketing USA Mark Bubb adds: "Atticus Black continues in our efforts to make a difference in the ever-changing music scene.

"As Atticus celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, we aim to be as involved in our artists careers just as much as we were a decade ago.

"Atticus Black is proud to still be producing clothes for musicians that hold strong on stage, and look good off stage.

"Without support from the many Atticus-endorsed artists, our brand would never have grown to the massive success that it is now.

"We see the Atticus Black touring series as just one of the many ways we can give back, and hopefully help our artists continue to succeed.

"Atticus Black takes pride in our efforts to connect with fans, and bring them a show that is low in cost, and high in quality. From EMMURE and WINDS OF PLAGUE to UNEARTH and STICK TO YOUR GUNS, we have seen the excitement of the heavy music community the last two years.

"It is an honor to have legends DARKEST HOUR co-headlining the bill for the third installment. From 'The Mark of The Judas' all the way to this year's 'The Human Romance', DARKEST HOUR gives metal fans true, unrelenting talent. Bringing in young powerhouse BORN OF OSIRIS makes for a a perfect mix, the kind of variety Atticus Black loves to present."
