Two bands and two new albums

Darkest Hour and Bring Me The Horizon have both began working on new releases for next year.

Darkest Hour, who just got off tour with Trivium, are in the midst of finding a new label and are starting to write for an upcoming album during the process. They plan to start recording early in 2010. We wish them the best in finding an awesome label for the release!

For now we are waiting on the new music video for “The Tides.” It’s been shot and currently being edited.

Bring Me The Horizon seem to already have some material written and will be hitting the studio over the next few weeks with producer Fredrik Nordstom; he’s worked on albums with Dimmu Borgir and In Flames…so we know it’s legit.We can expect the album in summer 2010.

What Oli Sykes has to say about it:

It’s been one hell of a year, non-stop for us really! Our second album Suicide Season has taken us further than we ever thought was possible. I think we found our unique sound with that album and the next is going to be using Suicide Season as a base, but pushing it further in every single way imaginable.

It’s happening with Fredrick Nordstrom again, since he made us sound so amazing last time – all very exciting, stay tuned!
