DARKEST HOUR Announces Brief 20th Anniversary Tour, Playing Undoing Ruin In Full

Darkest Hour has been around for 20 years. Let that sink in.

Darkest Hour has been around for 20 years. Let that sink in.

Darkest Hour might not have released its debut record The Mark of Judas until 2000, but the group has been around since 1995! Hot damn! To celebrate, the band will be playing a very short tour in the Northeastern portion of the United States. The band will play the entirety of their 2005 record, Undoing Ruin on this trek, and then I'd imagine there will be a few classics tossed in there as well.

Dead to Fall will be opening for all six dates.

6/24 New York City @ Gramercy Theater
6/25 Worcester, MA @ The Palladium
6/27 Toronto, ON @ Hard Luck w/Ion Dissonance * no DTF
6/28 Chicago, IL @ Bottom Lounge
6/30 Atlanta, GA @ The Masquerade
7/01 Washington, DC @ Black Cat

Mike Schleibaum, who's been there since the beginning, offered these words in the press release:

"To say we feel lucky to have been able to pursue this crazy dream of rocking and rolling for so many years would be a tremendous understatement. The honor that it has been to travel the world and make new friends while partying with old ones has not been lost on us. Playing live has always been at the heart of what we do as artists and therefore we felt it only right to commemorate our 20th anniversary as a band.”

“We usually don't take much stock in nostalgia, but we plan on making this one hell of a party; so we've invited long time duders of the highest order, Dead to Fall to ensure that there will be no one left standing. These shows are for everyone else as much as they are for us, so we hope anyone who has felt a connection with the band over the years will come out and enjoy this party with us!"
