Darkest Hour Release Re-Recorded Version Of “Payphones & Pills”


Darkest Hour have re-recorded their 2003 track “Payphones & Pills” and given it an x-ray flexi disc pressing. The group decided to revisit the “Hidden Hands Of A Sadist Nation” song amid working on their forthcoming tenth studio album. You can get a copy of that exclusively via the band’s Patreon.

Speaking of revisiting the song, the group stated:

“While working on album ten we thought it would be fun to record a classic jam of ours and press it on something wild, just our way of saying, thank you for your Patreon subscriptions. Out of nowhere, Travis Orbin surprised us with these killer drum tracks and this idea took flight! We were so excited about the energy on the tracks that we had to finish the song. Of course, it is hard to go back and retrace your steps creatively so to speak, but we are happy to say almost 20 years later this song still holds up in all its glory.”
