DARKEST HOUR have posted the following studio update on their official web site:
"Lots of news happening in DARKEST HOUR world right now.
"We have begun mixing the record and should be ending our session in Vancouver on April 2nd. We cant wait to get these songs out there. Chris Taylor (aka Chris Crude of Pg. 99 fame) will be handling the artwork for the new record. He and our good friend over at Victory have been hashing out the art and we should be able to post the record cover sometime in the next week or so. The record is slated to come out June 28th, so get stoked!
"Mike 'the Mother Fucking' Murphster (of DARKEST HOUR merch fame) has begun a website redesign for us. I guess we can see what the hell his 4 years of college was for. Also in the first major touring news: We will be hitting the road as part of the Strhess Fest with BLEEDING THROUGH, ZAO, MARTYR AD, and FIGHT PARIS starting July 8th! The dates will be up soon. So hopefully Strhess Clothing will give us some new clothes (I mean, have you seen the DARKEST HOUR lately?). Combine that with a makeover from the dudes in BLEEDING THROUGH and we will be on the cover of GQ in no time!"
DARKEST HOUR recently issued a DVD, entitled "Party Scars and Prison Bars - A Thrashography". Described as "a behind-the-scenes look at the musical prowess and outrageous humor that have made DARKEST HOUR famous in the metal scene," the disc includes an autobiography spanning DARKEST HOUR's 10-year existence, footage from their very first show, live performances, backstage banter, music videos, European tour footage and more.
DARKEST HOUR's latest album, "Hidden Hands of a Sadist Nation", was released in May 2003 through Victory Records. The CD includes guest appearances from Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES, THE CROWN), Anders Björler (AT THE GATES, THE HAUNTED), Peter Wichers (SOILWORK) and Marcus Sunesson (THE CROWN).
