THE DARKNESS HAVE ANNOUNCED A UK TOUR IN SUPPORT OF THEIR UPCOMING ALBUM ‘LAST OF OUR KIND’.

The jumpsuit adorning figures of The Darkness will bring the glam-rock goodness for 14-dates around the UK at the end of this year.

Beginning in Norwich on the 30th November 2015, the ‘Blast Of Our Kind’ tour ends with a huge finale at the iconic Roundhouse in London.

The tour will be the first headline run of shows following the release of their fourth studio album ‘Last Of Our Kind’ on the 1st June 2015.

The upcoming album already promises to be something special following the release of the epic lead single ‘Open Fire’ and the brutal teaser track ‘Barbarian'; both of which smack of that classic Darkness sound with the majestic caterwauling of frontman Justin Hawkins.

In addition to debuting their new material on the upcoming tour, The Darkness will also show off their brand new drummer: Rufus Taylor. The sticksman is the son of the legendary Queen drummer Roger Taylor and he takes over from Emily Dolan Davies who left the band following a (very) brief stint in the band.

The ‘Blast Of Our Kind’ tour will be the band’s first UK run since their 2013 stint which celebrated the 10th anniversary of their acclaimed debut album ‘Permission To Land’, which featured the unmistakable hits ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’, ‘Growing On Me’ and ‘Love Is Only A Feeling’.

For those who cannot wait until the end of the year to see the band in all their lycra-wearing glory you can catch them at a series of festival dates, following a sold-out album launch show at Dingwalls on the 3rd June. The Darkness will appear at Groove Festival and Daytripper Festival in Ireland before UK slots at Brownstock Festival, Boardmasters and Victorious Festival.

Tickets for The Darkness’ ‘Blast Of Our Kind’ tour go on sale on the 15th May 2015.
