DARKEST HOUR guitarist Kris Norris has issued the following update:
"I have recently found out that I am a father to be. My wife and I are so stoked! I cannot wait to invade the PTA meetings years down the road with my long hair and horrible upside down cross and 'I Murder' tattoos.
"I am making this announcement for a specific reason... thank you all who have emailed me or I.M.'d about this, I'm so glad you found out about it through the grapevine.
"I am proud to become a father, but it's no big deal it happens every day. So thank you to everyone who has congratulated me!!!!
"Send me your ideas for baby names and no dumb joke emails like 'Chuck Norris' or 'Your Band Sucks'... I've heard them all already!"
DARKEST HOUR's new album, "Deliver Us", was released on July 10 via Victory Records. The long-awaited follow-up to 2005's "Undoing Ruin" was recorded at the Warehouse in Vancouver, Canada.
