DARKEST HOUR have announced that their bassist Paul Burnette (in the photo on the left) is not in the band anymore, but will continue with Aaron Deal as his replacement.
About Burnette‘s departure and the band’s future, they state:
It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the official departure of longtime friend and bassist, Paul Burnette. Paul’s presence on the stage, in the jam room, and everywhere in between will be missed. He has helped us to both conquer the world and develop the sound of the band. For that we’ll be eternally grateful.
Although Paul will continue with the new powerhouse Iron Reagan, his musical footprint will remain with us forever. We love you, dude!
As many of you who have seen us live know, Aaron Deal (ex-Salome mastermind) has been doing an amazing job filling in these past few tours. He’s rocked Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America with us and it’s safe to say, he’s a true bro. We couldn’t ask for a more badass addition to the dudes.
Deal comments on his joining:
As a longtime friend of all the dudes, I think playing with Darkest Hour is a natural fit. I’ve definitely had a blast playing all over the world with them and I can’t wait to take this party to the next level!
