Pitkän linjan yhdysvaltalainen metalcore -yhtye Darkest Hour on siirtymässä syys-lokakuussa studioon tuottaja Kurt Balloun (Converge) kanssa. Bändi onnistui keräämään järjestyksessään yhdeksännelle albumilleen yleisörahoituksella lähes 70 000 dollaria. Levy on jo ennakkotilattavissa bändin Bigcartel -sivuston kautta.

HELL YEAH BIG UPDATE TIME!:
We have secured producer, Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire) to come on board and produce/record our 9th studio album. We will be recording at his very own GodCity studios in Massachusetts this September.
For those of you who are not familiar with his work, Kurt is not only a co-founding member of Converge (an amazing band we have had the joy of touring with and sharing the stage with many times) but also owner and operator of his studio (GODCITY – http://www.godcitystudio.com) for the past 20 plus years. There is no doubt that if you are a fan of extreme music with a creative touch you probably have an album of his in your collection.
For this album, we really want to focus on our playing. We want to bring the energetic and raw emotion we exude live to tape. We love to jam / riff all day, and Kurt’s unique style of producing will compliment this perfectly. Also, it doesn’t hurt that we completely respect and trust him both as a friend and a musician – meaning this monumental task of bringing another darkest hour album to life will rest well in his hands.
So, with our sights set on Boston this September we will get back to the riff dojo and start woodshed’n these jams! We have alot more left to be revealed (this album is OUR album so no idea will be left unrealized) and you will all hear about it from us first.
