Oh yes, folks — it is true!
Darkest Hour have a new drummer in Travis Orbin.
If that name sounds familiar, Orbin is a former member of Periphery and is known for his work with Sky Eats Airplane.
Orbin will be involved with the creation of the band’s new album.
“I’ve been jamming and writing the new record with the guys for over a year,” he writes online.
“It’s been especially rewarding in that everything was composed in a room together, a wholly organic process that I haven’t experienced in a long while. I’m excited about the tunes, signing on as a full-time member, and can’t wait to hit the road!”
The band’s vocalist, John Henry, further chimed in: “This is a very exciting time in the history of the band. Travis is hands down one of the best drummers I have ever seen, and is bringing to the table an incredible and inspiring amount of talent and musical ability. This marks the beginning of a new era for Darkest Hour, one you will have to hear and see to believe!”
A new album is expected out late this summer.
