In another piece of exciting news, we are ecstatic to let you know that we have partnered with long time co-conspirators Southern Lord. This allows us to bring Godless Prophets … to the masses. Southern Lord will be making sure the Godless Prophets … to the masses. Southern Lord will be making sure the production end of things goes smoothly and we provide you all with the best possible product in the end.
In addition, they will help bring these songs and this music to new hearts (one thing we strive to continue). Southern Lord owner, Greg Anderson, is also a long time friend and supporter of the band. The history runs deep – Southern Lord having released our very first album, The Mark of the Judas, on vinyl. The task we have entrusted him with is no easy feat, but he and his label are more then up for it! We cannot thank them enough for their support. It is with them, as well as you at our side, that we are ready to take this music to the world stage!
If there is anything Darkest Hour has been about, it’s bringing our music to you live. We’re happy to carry on tradition by announcing our US tour with:

For all of you who missed out on the Party Scars Live Pre Party (maybe you live NOWHERE near Washington DC!) we have made some special tour ticket packages that included some hang time with the band at our upcoming shows. Now you know we will always stop to say “hi”, take a picture with you, sign anything you ask us to, and of course, take photos for free. However, these packages afford us an allotted time that we are ALL together and will be ready to talk all things Darkest Hour or just hang out before the craziness of the show takes place. So, join us by picking up one of these packages in your town if you want to party early, If not, you know we will find time to get that high five in!
We have also been working hard to provide additional behind the scenes content and we are excited to announce something we have never done before:
Darkest Hour Radio!
Founding member, Indiegogo secretary, Guitarist, and now host, Mike Schleibaum takes you on a journey via a podcast series focused on all things Godless Prophets and The Migrant Flora. He’ll interview the band, producer, artist, crew, and many more who had something to do with the album. First up is a talk and tour preview with long time Tour Manger, Lighting Tech, and Road Dog – Tito Picon.
In addition, we have continued our long tradition of behind the scenes Webisodes. We worked with our good friends at Misdirected Productions to put together a great 7 part Webisode series to bring you guys into our process and together a great 7 part Webisode series to bring you guys into our process and give you a little glimpse of Godcity!
