Darkest Hour have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora, at Loudwire. Titled “Timeless Numbers”, the new track features a four-minute onslaught of concussive rhythms, flesh-ripping angular riffs and Darkest Hour‘s signature blend of scathing aggression. Guitarist Mike Schleibaum told Loudwire the following about the track:
“This song, like the first tack we released, has a dual meaning,…The first is the continuation of the storyline that permeates the album. In this track we see our main character struggle with the inherit history of the culture he / she was brought up in and the realization that it was always in our nature to divide and consume ourselves.
In simpler terms, it is a reflection on the drain of modern life and the subsequent division / internal destruction that this life seems to always lead humanity towards. As we travel the world, we have seen how no matter where you are, humans divide themselves. We interact with immigration policies, boarders and barriers that are cultural, economic and political everyday that we are on tour. While traveling the world we have done our best to spread a message of anti-nationalism, unilateral respect for humans of all forms, and lastly the basic idea that music/art is more powerful and more eternal then religion, nation states or even TECHNOLOGY!”
Check out the track below.
Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora will be released on March 10 via Southern Lord Records.
