Darkest Hour take a bite out of shark week

Posted by on July 7, 2015

Tune into Shark Week tonight on the Discovery Channel (9pm EST) and you’ll hear some music from Washington, DC metal band Darkest Hour – apparently you’ll even hear their band name mentioned, too. All this according to the band’s official Facebook account:

“Excited to announce that 3 of our songs are used throughout this amazing show (produced by the all mighty Red Rock Films ) that will premier on Discovery chanel s shark week, this tuesday July 7th at 9:00PM Eastern Standard Time. Set those DVR’s as Official Darkest Hour even gets a mention on camera, Big Sharks, Big Riff’s..what else do you need in TV!”

This isn’t the first time that co-founding Darkest Hour guitarist Mike Schleibaum was involved with Shark Week; Schleibaum’s own music was used in a show called “Zombie Sharks” last year. The band also released a self-titled album last year, too, their eighth. Their first album with Sumerian Records, it debuted at #94, selling 3,225 copies in its first week of release.
