Darkest Hour Announces The Independent Release of Their Ninth Studio Album
If your reading this email then at one point you either purchased an item from the Darkest Hour online DIY store, signed up for our mailing address, or downloaded a free copy of our covers 7 inch.
Regardless let us first take the time to say thank you!
With your support we’ve been able to release: 1 demo, 2 EP’s, 8 full-length albums, have our music appear in video games, major motion pictures, participate in countless tours and perform all over world – spanning 6 continents.
The most incredible part of this journey has been the ability to connect with so many people on an individual level.
It’s in keeping with this spirit that we are proud to announce our plan to independently release Darkest Hour’s 9th studio album.
We started this band releasing our own music therefor to do so now, with modern tools, on our own terms, is as much of a nod to the past as it is a look into the future.
We wanted to make sure that you (all who directly supported the band recently) got first crack at all the special items that we have offered. Your pre-order will go directly towards the creation, production and distribution of the album itself.
As an extra gift to all supporters, we will be offering this never-before-seen Thrashography Sequel “Party Scars and Prison Bars: Two and a Half.” The good people at Media-Phi and Indie Life Media followed us all over the world, documenting every step of our 20th Anniversary Tour in 2015, which includes multi-camera live footage, exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews and amazing guest appearances! This film is a perfect addendum to the story so far and we’re happy to provide this, and many more killer videos, for you all.
In fact, those who preorder the CD/DVD option will receive our full 20th Anniversary Undoing Ruin live set, filmed at the Black Cat in Washington, DC. This is the first time that we have ever released a full set of the band live and we’re happy to show you all how we like to party in DC.
Some of our favorite artists have paved the way for us by independently releasing their own albums. We are more than happy to carry on the tradition; after all, connecting directly with you feels like home to us.
Time is limited as this is a 30-day campaign. Please be a part of making history with us by picking up one of the options below. Help us make the nastiest, no-holds-barred, shreddiest, riffingist, most CRUSHING album in our catalog, allowing the only outside influence to be you, the supporters! Thanks in advance, we can’t wait to unleash this album on your ear-holes!
Mike, John, Travis, Aaron, Lonestar,
