the darkness

The Darkness have announced brand new album ‘Motorheart’, due out on 15 October 2021.

The glam rockers upcoming release is set to be jam-packed with their signature guitar riffs, soaring falsetto vocals and immeasurable rock ‘n’ roll extravagance, with fans set to get a taste of the first single next month.

Frontman Justin Hawkins commented, “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! 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’ 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…”

‘Motorheart’ will be the follow-up to the band’s 2019 full-length ‘Easter Is Cancelled’, which earned them their fourth Top 10 UK album to date as well as topped the Official Charts Top 40 Rock Chart and the iTunes Rock Chart.

The Darkness have also confirmed that they will be hitting the road on tour later this year with support coming from British Lion, the side project of legendary Iron Maiden founder and bassist Steve Harris.
