Born Of Osiris Comments On Upcoming Tour Dates

Born of Osiris is gearing up to release the new album "The Discovery" on March 22nd, 2011. The band will also be embarking on the third annual "Atticus Metal" tour as co-headliners with Darkest Hour. The bill is rounded out with As Blood Runs Black and The Human Abstract.

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. This tour will be a great time, so come out and don't forget to come say hi to us at the merch table.”

Darkest Hour Announces European Release Date

"The Human Romance," the new album from Washington D.C. metal act Darkest Hour, will be released in Europe on March 7 through Century Media Records. The new album, which will be issued in North America on February 22 through eOne Music, was recorded at a North Carolina studio with producer Peter Wichers.

Darkest Hour guitarist Mike Schleibaum commented by saying:

"We have been working on these tunes ever since we left the studio last April. 'The Eternal Return' was written during a very dark, bleak time for the band and I think that record matches that in both tone and character. Our vision was for it to be an in-your-face, no-frills aggressive assault. The new material shares in that aggression and pushes Darkest Hour beyond the unknown."
