The Darkness have announced their new album Motorheart is set for release on 15th October 2021 via Cooking Vinyl. Alongside the album announcement, the band have revealed they will be heading out on tour across the UK in November and December.

The time has come, the walrus said… to put your fookin pants on your head and rock like Satan is eating your private parts with a pointy fork! Yes, we, The Darkness, are the fuck 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…,” comments Justin Hawkins.

Motorheart is available to pre-order now on a number of formats, including as part of signed bundles. Fans who pre-order the album before 10th June 2021 will gain access to a pre-sale for their recently announced dates. Head here to pre-order now.
