DARKEST HOUR are streaming the first new music from the band’s forthcoming album, Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora (March 10, Southern Lord Recordings), and you can check out the song “Knife In The Safe Room” below.

"This song sets the tone for the album both lyrically and sonically,” explains DARKEST HOUR guitar player Mike Schleibaum. “While this may be the most fierce album we have ever released, its depth and sonic richness are sure to be discovered as the listener dives in. Thematically this song has a dual purpose. On the surface it is a classic DARKEST HOUR song, ripe with the reflection of today’s bleak modern age but as you peel back the lyrics and ideas contained within the album story unfolds, one that is all too common in human history. This is the beginning, it is part bitter reflection of the way things are and part anthem for those who struggle to survive as the world encircles them. To quote Nina Simone: "An artists duty is to reflect the times", with that we hold a mirror to the face of all things truly horrific and give you, "The Knife In The Safe Room"."

Pre-orders for the 12-song album are available now with physical bundles available via Southern Lord’s webstore (http://southernlord.com/bands/view/darkest-hour) and digital downloads, which include a download of “Knife In The Safe Room”, available via Bandcamp (https://darkesthoursl.bandcamp.com/), iTunes (http://apple.co/2hpwKmE) and Apple Music (http://apple.co/2hSRIqX).

The 12-song album was part of a crowd funding campaign that the band launched earlier this year, with the ultimate tally netting the band well over 100% of the initial goal and allowing them to also create an album beyond their initial expectations. The band chose producer Kurt Ballou (HIGH ON FIRE, NAILS, CONVERGE) for “his obvious genius” (Schleibaum said) and recorded the release at Ballou’s Godcity Studio. Artist Shaun Beaudry was commissioned to create a custom painting, giving the album a unique visual identity.

“Working at Godcity was the perfect vibe for this record and Kurt was everything we could have asked for in a producer,” said Schleibaum. “The passion and experience he brought to the whole album really shows.”

DARKEST HOUR have since partnered with Southern Lord Recordings, which Schleibaum discussed, saying “The band has a long history of working with Greg and Southern Lord, who originally released the vinyl version of The Mark Of Judas. While working with Kurt, we became reacquainted with Greg. We’ve always respected Greg’s work ethic, creative prowess and steadfast dedication to quality.”

“Southern Lord is beyond stoked to be working with long time favorites DARKEST HOUR on their upcoming album! Their tasteful, seamless fusion of hardcore and metal as well as never ending dedication to underground music is both admirable and praise worthy,” said Southern Lord founder Greg Anderson.
