Darkest Hour Announce Headlining Tour

Darkest Hour

I got a press release today confirming a long-rumored tour: Darkest Hour headlining a North American trek with openers Veil of Maya and Periphery. So yeah — that’s happening.

The band — who have been working on material for a new record — are using the occasion to mark their 15th anniversary, and hence, the shows will feature tracks from across the band’s catalogue.

“This band has taken us from the basements of northern Virginia to literally all around the world,” frontman John Henry says. “In our many years of full time touring and six albums we’ve had the time of our lives. To celebrate this we’ve decided to do a tour we feel reflects the history of the band.  This tour is for every one of our fans and friends who have supported us along the way, and for those who have never seen us this will be the perfect way to check out what we’re all about.”

Added guitarist Mike Schleibaum: “We’re excited to have some great younger bands on tour with us for this run. All of the support bands are very impressive metal hybrids with their own distinct sound, which will make for many nights of sick metal riffage.”
