The Washington D.C. metallers DARKEST HOUR will hit up a studio in Vancouver on February 19th to record their follow up album to 2005’s ‘Undoing Ruin’. Once again they will team up with metal god and producer extraordinaire Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, THE DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND).
Guitarist Mike Schleibaum had this to say:
“You can expect a much more epic and sonically destructive evolution on the DARKEST HOUR sound. We are taking what we learned and built with ‘Undoing Ruin’
in a new and exciting direction. It will be a guitar-heavy record and
Kris [Norris, guitar] and I are definitely looking to push both what we
are capable of doing along with what this band is capable of doing. We
want to make the record we think that we can’t. We want there to be
stuff on this record that makes us cry to play and also excited to pull
off. We are looking forward to the challenge of following up ‘Undoing
Ruin’ and also the excitement of presenting some new songs both threw
your stereo speakers and live as well.”
Once again, the album will be out via Victory Records and is set for a mid 2007 release.
