The Darkness announce US tour

The Darkness have announced their Back To The USSA tour this spring.

They’ll play a 20-date run in the US in April and May to promote their 2015 album Last Of Our Kind.

Frontman Justin Hawkins says: “The Darkness are primed to continue their campaign of world domination. If music and good times are in your soul, come see us perform live.

“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.”

Hawkins previously admitted the band were considering adopting a new name after going through several lineup changes.

Meanwhile, The Darkness are also scheduled to play at the TeamRock-sponsored Stone Free Festival, which takes place at London’s O2 Arena on June 18 and June 19.
