AceShowbiz - The Darkness will release their new album "Motorheart" in October (21).
The group, fronted by Justin Hawkins, declared the "time has come" to "rock like Satan is eating your private parts with a pointy fork" as they unveiled their follow-up to 2019's "Easter Is Cancelled".
The "One Way Ticket" rockers are set to embark on a tour of the U.K. in November and December in support of the record, which drops on 15 October.
They will be supported by Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris' side project British Lion.
Justin said in a press release, "The time has come, the walrus said... to put your f**king pants on your head and rock like Satan is eating your private parts with a pointy fork!"
"Yes, we, The Darkness, are the f**k 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... (sic)"
The run kicks off in Brighton on 17 November, and concludes with two consecutive nights and London's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on 16 and 17 December.
Tickets go on sale on 11 June from 10 am BST.
