Darkest Hour FINALLY Sets Release Date For New Album, Teaser Clip Posted

Mike 'Lonestar' Carrigan, guitarist - DARKEST HOURFucking finally! It was incredible and mind-blowing seeing them live a while back at The Fillmore Silver Spring, and I've been piqued with anticipation for the new album they were talking a bit about at the after-party that night (and had played a couple of new tracks from during their set).

Well, that wait is now almost over! Darkest Hour will be releasing their new album on August 5th!

It's been a long time coming, but I have a feeling after all that work they've put in, the new stuff will not disappoint!

They are one of the few bands that can do that style of metal really fucking well. On top of it all, they are from our area (DC, to be exact), and they're some of the nicest guys you will ever meet. Did I mention how fucking phenomenal their live shows are? So much great energy - it's invigorating, fucking heavy, thrashy, and insanely powerful all at once with a bit of a punk feel. In short, Darkest Hour is badass.

You can stream the teaser clip here.

Darkest Hour will be rolling through with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival on August 3rd at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia. There's tons of other dates, too, so check the dates below and go get yourself some tickets to see these guys with the mighty Cannibal Corpse and Trivium along with Body Count, Veil of Maya and Texas Hippie Coalition.

(Oh yeah, Asking Alexandria, Suicide Silence and Emmure will be there as well, unfortunately. You don't have to actually sit through those abominations, though. Just saying.)
