The Darkness will hit the road in the UK and Ireland later this year in support of their upcoming album Easter Is Cancelled
The Darkness have announced details of a UK and Ireland tour, which will take place later this year.
The band have revealed a total of 18 live shows, kicking off at Belfast’s Limelight on November 26 and wrapping up on December 20 at London’s Roundhouse.
The Darkness have lined up the shows in support of their new studio album Easter Is Cancelled, which will launch on October 4 via Cooking Vinyl.
A statement on the tour reads: “The Darkness are joyous warriors, here to prick the pompous and kick the arses of those who seek to destroy us.
“Easter Is Cancelled sees the four maestros embark upon their most ambitious quest to date with their musical opus soon to be thrust into the ear canals of rock fans around the globe, and a tour that will quite literally resurrect the souls of all who attend.
“Join The Darkness in their mission to take back control from the fools and liars who purport to lead us, and instead march forwards into the sunlit uplands of inclusivity, togetherness and rock’n’roll fellowship.”
Tickets will go on general sale this coming Friday (April 12) from 10am.
The Darkness will also embark on further live shows across Europe in 2020. Find a full list below.
