Darkest Hour will release their ninth album, Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora, on March 10th via Southern Lord Recordings and are now streaming another new song called “Timeless Numbers”.

“This song, like ‘Knife in the Safe Room’, has a dual meaning,” explains Darkest Hour guitar player Mike Schleibaum. “The first is the continuation of the story line 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!”
