Celebrating their 25th anniversary this year, Darkest Hour have announced a special livestream event to benefit their "favorite local venue during these unprecedented times." To aid their good friends at the Black Cat in the band's hometown of Washington DC, Darkest Hour will lead a worldwide livestreaming event to be held on September 26 via Veeps.com. All profits generated by the event will go to the Black Cat Employee Fund. The band comments: "We have been spending a lot of time thinking of our family, friends, and colleagues who are all struggling to find a way through these trying times. The Black Cat has been a constant refuge for us over the years and so it feels right to our best to give back now. We need art, we need music, and we will need a place to all come together eventually to heal form all of this. We want those of our friends who work in the music/art/live events industry to know that we see you, we are here for you, and most of all that you are not alone. We will be rolling out a special digital merchandise store, and some other surprises so follow along on our social media as we reveal more details. Happy to do our part to support the fund and give back to a community and club that has given so much to us. Thanks so much in advance for helping get the word out. Just trying to get creative, stay active, give back, all while we try and write the best album of our lives!"
