DARKEST HOUR LAUNCH OFFICIAL BANDCAMP; ALBUMS NEVER-BEFORE-RELEASED ONLINE POSTED

DARKEST HOUR LAUNCH OFFICIAL BANDCAMP; ALBUMS NEVER-BEFORE-RELEASED ONLINE POSTED
Salad Days

On the heels of their triumphant return to the stage at a hometown DC show and Furnace Fest performance last week, Darkest Hour have finally gotten their official Bandcamp page launched…

…which features several never-before-available online releases. Their 2020 Patreon exclusive ‘Live In Lockdown’, 2015’s ‘Undoing Ruin: Live At The Black Cat’, their covers collection (feat. Judas Priest, Minor Threat, Black Flag + more covers), and Darkest Hour’s ‘Washington Capitols Fight Song Collection’ are just a few small pieces of what’s available on Darkest Hour’s Bandcamp. Guitarist Mike Schleibaum comments, “It’s becoming increasingly clear that Bandcamp has made a major impact on music commerce and connecting band to fan direct sales, something we have always tried to foster.” He continues, “Since the inception of our band we have been self-releasing music, so in that spirit we launch our Bandcamp page with some of our more specialized releases all in one place. We are continually excited by the opportunities surrounding our band and look forward to creating yet another way to connect our music with the world!”

Additionally, Darkest Hour have welcomed a second guitarist for their upcoming live dates: Nico Santora, known for his work with bands like Suicidal Tendencies, The Faceless, Lillake and most recently with Fallujah. Santora comments, “I have been listening to Darkest Hour since I started playing guitar, and I remember trying (and failing) to learn their songs when I was 16. The band has my utmost respect for withstanding the test of time and staying active for all these years, and I’m honored to jump into the fold and shred alongside them!”
