D.C. melo-death metallers Darkest Hour have recently finished crowd-funding to make their ninth studio album.
The band fundraised $70,000 toward the album, which will be produced by Kurt Ballou (Converge).
The band will record at the GodCity Studio in Massachusetts. They expect to be in the studio from September to October.
Check out a comment from guitarist Mike Schleibaum here.
“We really want to focus on the playing for this album. We want bring the energetic, raw, emotion we exude live to tape this time. We love to jam and riff all day and we feel Kurt’s unique style of producing will compliment this perfectly. Also, it doesn’t hurt that we completely respect and trust him as both a friend and musician, meaning we feel this monumental task of bringing another Darkest Hour album to life will rest well in his hands. So with our sights set on Boston for this September we will get back to the riff dojo and start woodshed’n these jams!”
