Lee McKinney (guitars) states: “The European run was a blast. We met some amazing people, not only in the bands we toured with and met for the first time (Protest The Hero, Purified in Blood), but also the fans that came to see us. It was also great being over there with Darkest Hour. We've known those guys for a long time, so it was almost like a vacation with friends. Being our second time in Europe, we got to witness first hand how our fan base overseas grew, and thats always awesome to see.

“Now we get to hit the U.S. again with Darkest Hour on the Atticus Tour! This should be a blast. We are releasing our new CD on this tour and are now going to be playing a good amount of new material live. We haven't toured the states in a few months, so we are excited to head back out with new material and see how it goes.
