The Darkness to Tour the UK later this year.




Britons finest are back for a full UK tour.

The Darkness to tour the UK again this winter. A darkness gig is always an eventful occasion as they never fail to put on a great show. Justin never fails to give it 100%. The event was teased on the website with a animation of a clock and the caption "As the clocks go forward... something wicked this way comes"

On top of this news they also announced a new album to be released in September.

Justin Hawkins said. 

“The Darkness is proud to return once again to the stages of our sceptered isle. We are here to confirm our reputation as the mightiest live band treading the boards in this saccharine age of music made by computers, millionaires and halfwits. Sometimes by all three! We will once again be showcasing our trademark mix of relentless rifferama, effortless haute couture, ridiculously loud noises and bright things that flash on and off.

“As any fool will tell you, a Darkness show is a place where believers come together, where fluids are shared, and dreams are built. But most importantly, where rock and roll is crowned king EVERY NIGHT!

“And as if that wasn’t enough, we have made a frankly stunning fifth album that will be unleashed on the world in September of this year by the lovely Cooking Vinyl people. Good times… so come one, come all!!”
