Darkest Hour Announces Split With Bassist Paul Burnette, Names Successor

Darkest Hour announced that bassist Paul Burnette has left the band. Burnette's replacement will be Aaron Deal, who has played with the band as a live musician since 2011.

The band made had the following comments on the lineup change:

"It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the official departure of long time friend and bassist, Paul Burnette. Paul’s presence on the stage, in the jam room, and everywhere in between will be missed. He has helped us to both conquer the world and develop the sound of the band. For that we’ll be eternally grateful.

"Although Paul will continue with the new powerhouse, Iron Reagan, his musical footprint will remain with us forever. We love you, dude!

"As many of you who have seen us live know, Aaron Deal (ex Salome mastermind) has been doing an amazing job filling in these past few tours. He’s rocked Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America with us and it’s safe to say, he’s a true bro. We couldn’t ask for a more badass addition to the dudes."

Aaron Deal commented:

"As a long-time friend of all the dudes, i think playing with Darkest Hour is a natural fit. I’ve definitely had a blast playing all over the world with them and I can’t wait to take this party to the next level!"

Darkest Hour is supporting its latest LP "The Human Romance," which was released in February 2011 through E1 Entertainment.
