Due to the obvious complications from the continuing COVID pandemic, DARKEST HOUR is saddened to announce the cancelation of their December USA tour with MISERY SIGNALS. Refunds can be obtained from your point of purchase. In the same breath, the bands are excited to present to a live stream event to include full sets from both acts.
On December 5th, DARKEST HOUR will be streaming an encore presentation of their Live At The Black Cat 2020 Benefit Concert while Misery Signals will be streaming a never before seen set recorded especially for this online event. Band members from both bands will be available in the live chat during the streaming event and on the live Zoom after party directly after the show, all of which will be free to all ticket holders.
Writes DARKEST HOUR‘s Mike Schleibaum, “Both DARKEST HOUR and Misery Signals have built our careers on live music, and we will continue to do our best to give back and use this digital connection to help ensure our future physical one. Portions of the proceeds from the ticket sales will go to benefit clubs all over the world who were either affected by our tour cancelations or have hosted a DARKEST HOUR or Misery Signals Concert in the past. DARKEST HOUR‘s first digital event raised over $6000.00 for our favorite live venue in DC, The Black Cat. Let’s do it again this December and continue to spread that love across the globe!”
The show will take place on Saturday, December 5th at 6:30 PM Pacific/9:30 PM Eastern. Bundles include a ticket to stream both sets live and watch on-demand for 24 hours, as well as an official event t-shirt.

Century Media Records are proud to welcome US death metal/grindcore veterans MISERY INDEX to its worldwide family!

“We are very excited to spew forth our next batch of vitriol with our good friends at Century Media. It is a massive pairing for a new chapter! Respect!” – MISERY INDEX
“When I started working at Century Media, MISERY INDEX was the first band I suggested to sign right after the release of the “Overthrow” MCD on the band’s own Anarchos Records. Now, many years later, the plan finally worked out. We are excited and very happy to welcome them to Century Media Records!” – Philipp Schulte, Director Century Media

Death Metal outfit MISERY INDEX are now premiering a brand new video for the track ‘Decline and Fall’ which is taken from the bands’ latest album ‘Rituals of Power’ (2019). Watch the new offering, which comes with a somewhat chilling message, below.
MISERY INDEX comment on the video: “All civilizations fall [and] decline and, in the present, its members grapple dually with the lamentation of its demise and the hopefulness of new beginnings. This is us expressing precisely that.”
The band previously announced new European tour dates together with NAPALM DEATH and label mates ROTTEN SOUND. A full list of confirmed shows can be found below.
