‘Motorheart’ is due out October 15.

The Darkness

The Darkness have announced a brand new studio album Motorheart. The LP will be released on October 15 via Cooking Vinyl. The album’s first single is due out next month.

To support the record, the band is heading out on a U.K. The trek kicks off on November 17 at Brighton Dome and wraps up on December 16 and 17 with two shows at London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. British Lion, the side project of Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris, will serve as special guests.

“The time has come, the walrus said… to put your fookin’ pants on your head and rock like Satan is eating your private parts with a pointy fork,” Justin Hawkins stated emphatically. “Yes, we, The Darkness, are the fuck back on tour, praise Satan’s better half… come and party with us like it’s the last orders at the last chance saloon. Which it may well be, but I wouldn’t like to comment any further on that. Get in kids, it’s The Darkness, wot you knows and luvs, plus British Lion – Steve Harris’s top rock band who are guaranteed to blow your socks straight up your welcoming arses. What a night! Delirium! Outfits, including hats! Denim that smells of hamsters! Who doesn’t want that? See you down the front, connoisseurs of the finest that life has to offer.”

The Darkness’ last album – 2019’s Easter Is Cancelled – hit No. 10 on the UK Albums chart and No. 1 on UK Rock & Metal Albums.
