Darkest Hour guitarist/mastermind Mike Schleibaum has launched a new Washington D.C. punk group called Beasts Of No Nation.

Ex-Trial By Fire member Jason Yawn (vocals, guitars) explains: "We've been doing this band in various stages for seven years, since Mike (Beasts' lead guitarist) approached Kevin [Lamiell] (Beasts' bassist, Majority Rule/Trial By Fire) and I to do it. We wanted to make sure we did it the right way without allowing our individual obligations get in the way of us creating something we were proud of. We believe in it, and to see it come to fruition is really exciting."

The currently unsigned band is finishing up their self-produced debut full-length, portions of which can be heard here.

Additionally, Beasts Of No Nation will play their first show on Thursday, August 26th at DC9 in Washington DC.
