DC band Darkest Hour are metal veterans, but their forthcoming album, The Human Romance, is a new beginning. Their first album on eOne Music, it’ll be out on February 22nd, but you wont have to wait until then to hear it if you’re in the New York area. Metal Insider and eOne are presenting a listening party for the album next Friday (21) at Idle Hands Bar (25 Ave. B between 2nd and 3rd). In addition to getting to hear the album before anyone else, there will be drink specials and metal spun before and after the album is spun. There’s even talk of the band coming up and hanging out. All the information is in the flyer to your right, so come on out! As a taste for what you’ll be hearing, check out “Savor the Kill” over at Noisecreep.
