Washington D.C.-based metallers DARKEST HOUR have posted the fourth of a series of "webisodes" documenting the recording process for the group's new album. Watch it at this location.
DARKEST HOUR's long-awaited follow-up to 2005's "Undoing Ruin" is being recorded 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.
"It's the crispiest, most savory DARKEST HOUR to date," producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) recently 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!"
