Vocalist Trevor Phipps comments on the trip: "Touring the planet playing our music is a privilege. The fact that metal has brought us around the world numerous times and now to South East Asia continues to blow our minds. To our fans in S.E. Asia, get ready because we're coming for you. See you all soon!"

"strong, dynamic songwriting…it highlights Unearth's strengths superbly." Decibel Magazine
"a whirling torrent of passion and aggression" 4/5, Terrorizer Magazine
"it's the bands reawakened urgency and positivity that makes this like discovering them for the first time again." Metal Hammer Magazine
"Darkness In The Light is a maelstrom of melodic riffs, screamy shouts and enough noodling to keep Guitar Hero nerds happy. But it's not chasing maidens and slaying dragons; Unearth have enough of the '90s straight-edge hardcore scene still left in their blood to give the lyrics an impassioned warrior cry against corrupt politics and wavering faith." 4/5, Alternative Press Magazine
