A former member of Periphery and Sky Eats Airplane, drummer Travis Orbin will now be joining melodic death metalheads Darkest Hour as the band's new basher. Orbin has been working with the guys on with the band's eighth album, slated for a late 2013 release.
In regards to joining Darkest Hour, Orbin says, "I’ve been jamming and writing the new record with the guys for over a year. It’s been especially rewarding in that everything was composed in a room together, a wholly organic process that I haven’t experienced in a long while. I’m excited about the tunes, signing on as a full-time member, and can’t wait to hit the road!"
Singer John Henry adds: “This is a very exciting time in the history of the band. Travis is hands down one of the best drummers I have ever seen, and is bringing to the table an incredible and inspiring amount of talent and musical ability. This marks the beginning of a new era for Darkest Hour, one you will have to hear and see to believe!”
