Metal mainstays Darkest Hour have signed a worldwide deal with Sumerian Records, who will release their new full-length album and 2000 debut, The Mark Of The Judas.
Label owner Ash Avildsen commented, "Darkest Hour are some of the best dudes I have ever met in music. They're also one of the most underrated bands in metal and Sumerian is here to change that. Their influential debut album, The Mark Of The Judas, which never saw the real light of day due to their label at the time going under the day it came out, will finally get a proper release this fall, along with a new studio record."
The band also made a statement, saying "Before we could see it coming, we've been thrust out of Oceanic Studios (where we've been working with producer Taylor Larson) and back out on the road. Please come see us live with Killswitch Engage if we're coming to your city and it will also be our first tour with new drummer Travis Orbin. As soon as we get home we'll be back to the hermit life in the studio where we can finish up this album. To our brother Ash, Sumerian and all of you out there here's a huge cheers to 2014, a new Darkest Hour album and the future."
They're currently on tour with Killswitch Engage, Miss May I and The Word Alive. Watch their signing video below.
