Darren Joins Forces With Weapon UK
Midnight Messiah drummer Darren Lee has joined forces with Weapon UK to help them out with their forthcoming European shows and possibly more. Darren, Dave and Alex all have side projects and play in several other bands besides Midnight Messiah so this is not an unusual situation.
2015 has been earmarked as a year to write new material for the second Midnight Messiah album, so live shows will more than likely be limited this year, so this is an ideal way for Darren to keep his drumming up to his usual top class standard. Darren said: "Just to be clear I'm still committed to MM and looking forward to getting new songs together and doing a new album and shows etc but I feel this is a good opportunity for me that I don't want to let pass".
The currently advertised Midnight Messiah shows will still go ahead as planned.Midnight Messiah wish Darren all the best with his new project.
On another note, Midnight Messiah played through two new songs, 'The Sinner Must Die' and 'The Merry Widow' at rehearsals prior to the Christmas break, and they are sounding awesome! Paul and Phil will be working hard to finish off the new batch of songs throughout the coming months.
Midnight Messiah Rock HRH
Midnight Messiah had the honour of opening this year's edition of Hard Rock Hell, and started the party with a bang! It was a great weekend and the band would like to thank the organisers, stage crew, sound and lighting guys and all who watched the show for the fantastic response. We hope to see you all again very soon! In the meantime, there is a selection of videos of the band's performance in the videos section. That brings an end to our live shows for this year, as the band will be taking a break through the winter to work on new material. We will return in March for a show in London with Soldier and Sacrilege. More details on our Live Shows page.

Meavy Metal Maniacs Festival 2014
Midnight Messiah had a great time playing at the 2014 edition of the Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival in Amstelveen, close to Amsterdam. The band would like to thank the organisers for looking after them so well, and the fans for showing such great support. The band would also particularly like to thank the lighting man who did a fantastic job! Below are some pictures taken by Inka Hyvönen.
