Darkest Hour commented:

“Of course, due to the current world pandemic we must totally accept the possibility that these shows could also be effected, but we will not let that affect our hopes!

Everything is rapidly changing and it is impossible to say right now how things will sort themselves out by this December.

We encourage everyone to stay home, practice the new found art of social distancing, and stay safe so that we can help get this virus under control and live music can return!

We are, and will continue to, actively monitor the situation over the course of the next few months and we are committed to taking a pragmatic approach to the tour as a whole. If it’s not conducive to the health and safety of everyone involved, the shows will be shelved, tickets will be refunded, and we will continue to push on in the spirit of all things heavy metal!

We hope to see you at these shows, now more then ever it’s clear how important this connection of music and spirit is!

Darkest Hour Postpone West Coast Tour With Misery Signals & SECT

Darkest Hour have postponed their West Coast tour with Misery Signals and SECT due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek will be rescheduled at a later date.

Darkest Hour commented:

“Due to complications beyond our control, and in an effort to keep our fans and loved ones safe, we will be postponing our 25th Anniversary West Coast Tour, scheduled for this April 2020, and will reschedule for later this year.

All pre-sale tickets will be honored for the re-scheduled dates. Refunds will be available at point of purchase, but we encourage you to hold on to those tickets to help support these venues while they try to survive this.

Many of our friends in bands, who work at clubs, who work as restaurants, who work in other service industry jobs have been hit very hard the past few days with all the virus madness and we encourage you to reach out to those that you can with whatever support you have at your means.

This virus is a terrible threat, but so is fear.

We must be there for each other and you know we will always be there for you.

There are many places you can access our music for free right now. If the stress of these modern times are bringing you down then crank that shit up, that’s partially why this music was created!!!

We also encourage you to support our brothers in Misery Signals and Sect XVX who no doubt have expenses associated with the postponement of the dates.

Please show some love to the clubs and promoters who will DESPERATELY need you to come back once the CDC lifts its crowd limit recommendation. Please keep checking the CDC website for updates and recommendations of what to do during the coming weeks: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html

As for us, we continue to be thankful for the opportunity to do this, a heavy metal show is truly a special thing and we cherish the joy of the stage

We are very active and accessible via our Official Patreon Page: https://www.patreon.com/DarkestHourOfficial

This is the best way to financially support us as well as get some bad ass limited items!

We also have merchandise available via our DIY-Webstore (each order is packed by a band member and we always throw in something special): https://darkesthour.bigcartel.com

Next up for us is a little festival run this summer in Europe. Till then please keep connected with us!”

“It is with extreme excitement that we announce what we hope to be one of many tour’s next year celebrating our 25th anniversary!

Over these past 25 years we have toured with both new and established bands and have always worked hard to make our tour packages diverse and interesting.

This tour is in keeping with that tradition!

Fallujah is ripping progressive death metal who have had our attention for a while, can’t wait to see these riffs live!

Bloodlet is a very special band to us. One of the our early influences, it is EASY to say we would not be a band (or at least not the same band) without their influence. We grew up going to their shows and it’s a joy to be able to share the stage with them!

Une Misère, we got to see them play this summer and were impressed, Insanely heavy, Icelandic mosh of the highest form!

Lowest Creature is a killer blend of classic metal elements we all love translated with a new and distinctly Swedish twist!

Oh and you know we will have a few surprises planned for this special 25th anniversary set!

See you in the Pit!”

Fundraiser Launched For Ex-Darkest Hour Guitarist Kris Norris Following Apparent Heart Attack

A fundraiser has been launched for Kris Norris (ex-Darkest Hour/Scar The Martyr, etc.), who recently suffered an apparent heart attack. You can donate to that HERE.

According to The PRP, the guitarist said he was “diagnosed with inflammation of the heart or pericarditis and had a procedure done called a cardiac catheterization.” He also added that the heart attack was probably caused by a bacterial infection.

Norris has since been cleared to continue touring with Weapons Of Anew, but he needs help to pay for required tests and procedures that reportedly won’t be covered by health insurance due to the incident taking place out of the country. He said the following about the campaign:

“Because of the generosity so far I’ve been able to secure an appointment on Monday it’s the first of many and I feel so alive that I’ve been able to make it this far already thank you to all much love!!!!”
