The Darkness have announced 2021 UK tour dates in support of their seventh studio album.
The Darkness will release their new album ‘Motorheart’ on 15 October 2021 and embark on a UK tour this winter.
Justin Hawkins and co confirmed their follow-up to 2019’s ‘Easter Is Cancelled’ and shared their plans to take it on the road in 2021.
Joining them on their dates will be Iron Maiden legend Steve Harris’ side project, British Lion.
The band said in a press release: “The time has come, the walrus said … to put your f***** pants on your head and rock like Satan is eating your private parts with a pointy fork! Yes, we, The Darkness, are the f*** 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”.
