Darkest Hour’s ’25th Anniversary West Coast Tour’ tour with Misery Signals and SECT has been postponed. In an extensive statement, Darkest Hour write:
Due to complications beyond our control, and in an effort to keep our fans and loved ones safe, we will be postponing our 25th Anniversary West Coast Tour, scheduled for this April 2020, and will reschedule for later this year.
All pre-sale tickets will be honored for the re-scheduled dates. Refunds will be available at point of purchase, but we encourage you to hold on to those tickets to help support these venues while they try to survive this.
Many of our friends in bands, who work at clubs, who work as restaurants, who work in other service industry jobs have been hit very hard the past few days with all the virus madness and we encourage you to reach out to those that you can with whatever support you have at your means.
This virus is a terrible threat, but so is fear.
We must be there for each other and you know we will always be there for you.
There are many places you can access our music for free right now. If the stress of these modern times are bringing you down then crank that shit up, that’s partially why this music was created!!!
We also encourage you to support our brothers in Misery Signals and Sect XVX who no doubt have expenses associated with the postponement of the dates.
Please show some love to the clubs and promoters who will DESPERATELY need you to come back once the CDC lifts its crowd limit recommendation. Please keep checking the CDC website for updates and recommendations of what to do during the coming weeks: [LINK]
As for us, we continue to be thankful for the opportunity to do this, a heavy metal show is truly a special thing and we cherish the joy of the stage
We are very active and accessible via our Official Patreon Page: [LINK]
This is the best way to financially support us as well as get some bad ass limited items!
We also have merchandise available via our DIY-Webstore (each order is packed by a band member and we always throw in something special): https://darkesthour.bigcartel.com/
