DARKEST HOUR Announce New Drummer
Darkest Hour have acquired drummer Travis Orbin (Ex-Periphery and Sky Eats Airplane) as their newest member. Holy crap!
According to Orbin-
“I’ve been jamming and writing the new record with the guys for over a year. It’s been especially rewarding in that everything was composed in a room together, a wholly organic process that I haven’t experienced in a long while. I’m excited about the tunes, signing on as a full-time member, and can’t wait to hit the road!”
Interesting! Especially considering how much studio stuff Orbin does without any real interaction with the people he's working with or the songwriting process, I'm sure this is a great change of pace for him. More than anything, it's a total shock that Orbin is joining Darkest Hour… I just… seriously, who in the hell saw that coming? It's going to be crazy awesome considering how much the man brings to the table in terms of composition and creativity, but still; just wow. He's the last person I would have paired with the band. Here's to hoping it's extra awesome! Vocalist John Henry certainly thinks so-
“This is a very exciting time in the history of the band. Travis is hands down one of the best drummers I have ever seen, and is bringing to the table an incredible and inspiring amount of talent and musical ability. This marks the beginning of a new era for Darkest Hour, one you will have to hear and see to believe!”
