Darkness expand Last Of Our Kind

The Darkness have extended fourth album Last Of Our Kind with four previously unreleased songs.

The deluxe edition will be launched on November 20, to tie in with their UK tour. They’ve streamed Million Dollar Strong, available below.

The Darkness say: “The band has found some more tracks hidden under a carelessly-discarded catsuit, and thought they would make an excellent Christmas gift to their fans.

“The tracks join the phenomenal original 10 tracks which were unleashed earlier this year to critical acclaim.”

The three additional titles are Messenger, Always Had The Blues and I Am Santa. Those who pre-order the title on CD or digital will receive an instant download of Million Dollar Strong.
