Darkest Hour have released the first new music from their forthcoming album, “Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora” (March 10, Southern Lord), debuting the song ‘Knife in the Safe Room’.
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 for “his obvious genius” (as guitar player Mike 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.
Pre-orders are available now, physical bundles can be placed via the Southern Lord Europe store and digital downloads, which include a download of “Knife in the Safe Room,” available via Bandcamp, iTunes and Apple Music.
