The Darkness to tour UK

The Darkness have confirmed a UK tour for the end of the year – their first full road trip with drummer Rufus Taylor.

The son of Queen sticksman Roger was named as replacement for Emily Dolan Davies at the weekend.

After a run of summer festivals, the Blast Of Our Kind dates will support fourth album Last Of Our Kind, to be released on June 1.

The band say: “This is The Darkness’ first UK tour since 2013. Those in attendance will be awestruck by the all-new material, and downright delighted by the early works.”

Tickets go on sale via Live Nation at 9am on May 15 (Friday).
