DARKEST ERA have been added to ALESTORM’s Useless Drunken Bastards UK and Ireland tour in February 2012!
Guitarist Ade Mulgrew comments: “We are really looking forward to hitting the road around the UK with Alestorm on what should be a crazy couple of weeks. It’s our first proper tour so a really big deal for us. Most of the cities involved are ones we’ve never been to before so it’s going to be cool seeing new places and meeting new people. What we are most looking forward to however, is getting to play live so many nights in a row – we’re at our best live and we can’t wait to unleash our full heavy metal torrent across the UK at last!”
The tour kicks off in Plymouth and zigzags all over the country before finishing up in Norwich’s Waterfront two weeks later. Catch them here:

Check out DARKEST ERA live footage from their recent Siege Of Limerick show HERE.
The Last Caress of Light was recorded at Foel Studios in Wales at the end of August 2010 with producer Chris Fielding. The result are eight tracks of dark, stormy, epic Celtic Metal with which mix the melancholy and atmosphere of Irish Folk with the epic might of heavy metal bands such as Warlord, Iron Maiden and Thin Lizzy. The album stands out from all else as a record of intense emotional power and honesty; holding the listener within a dark heavy metal storm and not letting go until the last chords have rung out.
