Darkest Hour is in the studio for their first new album since Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora in 2017. According to the photo posted by the band, it looks like touring guitarist Nico Santora will be a part of the new record. Darkest Hour parted ways with guitarist Michael Carrigan in 2020, and has been playing live with Santora since 2021.
“We’re in the studio, it has begun!” said Darkest Hour in a statement. “We are thrilled to announce we have begun tracking our 10th studio album at Mix Wave studios in Bethesda MD, with Taylor Larson & Ernie Slenkovich. We have been working hard over these past few years to write, re-write, edit, and re-edit the songs on this album. It has been strenuous but the end result is an album that we are absolutely in love with.
“A late 2023 release is planned via a yet announced label, more details on the way. You can follow along over at our official Patreon (link in bio) for more in depth updates, to watch as we build this album from the ground up, and for your chance to get a Patreon exclusive version of our new record once it is complete.
“Special thanks to our Patreons who have helped keep our band alive these past years and helped fund the creation of another addition to our catalog! Can not wait for you all to hear these new jams and to enjoy them with you live sooner than later!”
