DARKEST HOUR Begins West Coast US Tour With Unearth Today
Washington, DC metalcore pioneers DARKEST HOUR begin their co-headlining West Coast tour with Unearth today. The festivities commence tonight in Seattle, with shows in Portland, Orangevale, Los Angeles, San Diego, Scottsdale, Las Vegas, Grand Junction, and Denver through December 15th.
A month later, DARKEST HOUR will kick off 2020 with a return to Europe for a sixteen-city special 25th anniversary tour, where they’ll be joined by special guests Fallujah, Bloodlet, Une Misere, and Lowest Creature.
Produced by Kurt Ballou (Converge), DARKEST HOUR‘s eleventh LP, Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora, continues to solidify the band’s legacy as a major metal powerhouse. Raw, complex, melodic, yet cutting with razor blade precision, Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora is a fierce album which shows the long-running band as lethal and ravenous as ever. Following its 217 release through Southern Lord, the band has continued to tour regularly throughout North America and Europe.
Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora is available on CD, black vinyl LP, picture disc LP, and all digital platforms via Southern Lord; find ordering options at the label’s webstore HERE, via Bandcamp HERE, and through all digital providers.

“The quest that DARKEST HOUR, the DC melodeath warriors, have been on for more than two decades is one that is wholly about tearing faces off with precision, intent, and riffs. The band’s most recent album, last year’s great Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora, showcased them knowing exactly what kind of music they wanted to make and how to make it.” – Noisey
“This album is full of death metal riffs, savage hardcore pummeling in drums, and melodic beauty, making for a terrific heavy record. Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora is a work that feels like the good ole days of outstanding hardcore that meets today’s brilliant technicality and soaring metal. This is unlike anything that DARKEST HOUR has presented before in their discography, and dare I say it: their best work. 9.5/10″ – Metal Injection
“As rich and ferocious as it is blessedly authentic…a freshly bloodthirsty DARKEST HOUR with a gritty edge and a fretwork at the forefront…With some of the band’s early spirit restored, some newly memorable songwriting skills, and superbly euphoric guitarwork, it would seem that DARKEST HOUR plus Kurt Ballou plus Kris Norris is as killer a formula as expected.” – Metal Hammer
“They’re firmly back on the horse here with a collection of acerbic aural hand grenades…the quintet set about ripping you limb from limb from the outset…A ripper.” – Rock Sound
