It’ll be the UK outfit’s first studio album since 2017’s Pinewood Smile. Tickets on sale Friday, April 12th @ 10 am from Ticketmaster.
Having formed in 2000, The Darkness consists of Justin Hawkins, his brother Dan Hawkins, Frankie Poullain and Rufus Tiger Taylor. The Darkness came to prominence with the release of their debut album, Permission to Land, in 2003
Frontman Justin Hawkins says: “We live in dark times. As power-hungry clowns cast a shadow of despair across this land, our people cower in tumbledown hovels. The birds do not sing and the children do not dance. Hope is crushed.
“Where are the heroes that this world needs? Where are the heroes that this world deserves? Cast aside despair, people, for the tide, will turn!
“We are men in tight costumes and we are ready to fight with every weapon that our forefathers have bequeathed – the guitar axe, the drum hammer, the bejewelled codpiece and the banshee wail of righteous anger.
“Nor shall we be cowed by the nay-sayers, nor shall we be bought off by the money lenders, nor gagged by the reeking stench of pious indifference that pours from the orifices of the clown-lords.
“Cometh the time, cometh the band. We are The Darkness and we bring you light.”
The Darkness will be taking to the stage in Dublin’s Academy on Wednesday, 27th November with tickets on sale from Friday, April 12th priced at €30 (inc booking fee).
