The Darkness have permission to land in the US for another tour

Posted by on February 23, 2016

the darkness 306The Darkness are generally held to the standard of their debut album, 2003’s Permission to Land, and with good reason. It’s a great rock album, anchored by fun songs like “I Believe In a Thing Called Love” and Justin Hawkins high-pitched voice, it was an excellent debut. And while they haven’t quite gotten back to that yet, last year’s Last Of Our Kind is easily their second-best album. The UK band toured the states behind it, and now they’ve just announced that they’ll be coming back in support of the album. Here’s what Hawkins has to say about the band’s return:

America – we give you the BACK TO THE USSA tour 2016, visiting as many glorious US rock citadels as possible before we return to our secret mountain-top castle to begin creating the next astonishing Darkness record.

The Darkness consists of my brother Dan, Frankie Poullain, Rufus Taylor and I. This is golden-era The Darkness. If music and good times are in your soul, come see us perform live. If you aren’t overly bothered about music and/or good times, jog on – there is nothing for you here.

A Darkness show is a place where believers come together, where fluids are shared, and dreams are built. But most importantly, rock and roll is crowned king EVERY NIGHT!
