Posted by on February 1, 2015

Darkest Hour’s Mike Schleibaum: “If It’s Not Dangerous And It’s Not Crazy, Then It’s Not F**king Interesting”

Posted by on August 27, 2014

Darkest Hour has never been one to repeat itself. Yet with its self-titled eighth album, the Washington D.C. band may have outdone itself.
