Washington D.C.-based metallers DARKEST HOUR have posted the second in a series of webisodes featuring behind-the-scenes footage from this year's Summer Slaughter Tour. Watch the clip below.
DARKEST HOUR recently kicked off a fall tour with TRIVIUM, DIRGE WITHIN and WHITECHAPEL. Drummer Ryan Parrish stated about the trek, "We are totally stoked to be reaching new fans with our style of melodic death metal. The bands on this tour have definitely turned it up a notch, and this is a tour not to be missed. Come bang your heads with the real metal dudes!"
"The Eternal Return", the latest full-length record from DARKEST HOUR, sold 4,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 104 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 1 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"The Eternal Return" was released on June 23 via Victory Records. The CD was produced by Brian McTernan (SENSES FAIL, THRICE, FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES) at his Baltimore, Maryland studio, Salad Days.
"To me, our new album redefines this band," guitarist Mike Schleibaum recently told Noisecreep. "It's got little elements from all the other records we've done combined in a way that sounds fresh, but is obviously the same band."
