The Darkness have revealed another new track in anticipation of their forthcoming album ‘Last Of Our Kind‘ which will be released on June 1st via Kobalt Label Services – not long to go now!!

Check out the latest track ‘Hammer & Tongs‘:

The Darkness will be touring in support of the album later on this year. The ‘Blast of Our Kind‘ tour will commence on November 30th in Norwich and culminate in a triumphant show at London’s Roundhouse on December 20th. It is the first, and a golden, opportunity for enthusiasts to see The Darkness on their own stage in support of the new, fourth album ‘Last of Our Kind‘.

The Darkness have already released the first single off of the album, entitled ‘Open Fire‘:

As well as this, the band have released ‘Barbarian‘ as a ‘teaser track’:

Vocalist Justin Hawkins describes the tracks as “Raw like sashimi, served with all the accoutrements you’d expect from The Darkness. Powerful, emotional lyrics sung from the heart (because it sounds better that way), a massive chorus, stripped naked and weeping, and some really brilliant guitar playing.”
