Darkest Hour Announce Drummer Change

Changes are afoot in the Darkest Hour camp. The Washington DC metal band just announced the departure of drummer Ryan Parrish, as well as his temporary replacement, Dead To Fall drummer Timothy Java (pictured above).

The band seems to want to emphasize the fact that Java is just sitting in … at least for now. “Tim did an amazing job on our recent European tour with Machine Head,” the band announced. “As for the future, that’s open for discussion – no permanent decisions have been made in any way.”

Apparently, Parrish has wasted no time, and already began worked with former Darkest Hour guitarist Kris Norris on a new band called A Cancerous Affair.
