Darkest Hour have been speaking about their up-coming trip to the UK.

The Washington DC metal act has issued this statement, which also talks of future plans, and does have the look of a spot the odd one out competition!

"We are stoked as hell to travel to the land of Zeppelin, The Darkness, The Beatles, The Who, insert every other great rock band here! DaveO!, BEECHER and FISH AND CHIPS! This will be our last performances on the 'Undoing Ruin' record!

The band say they have been hard at work preparing for a new record.

"We will be traveling to Vancover, B.C. to record once again with Devin Townsend who will produce and mix the record. We figured that no one else could help us put together the follow up to 'Undoing Ruin' better than he and we missed the coffee and great scenery!"

The band hope to have their new record ready for release by the end of June 2007.
