The Darkness – Last Of Our Kind

Rolling Stone exalts “their sound remains perfectly suited for the biggest stages in the world,” Playboy raves they “deliver the thunder,” Consequence of Sound effuses the album “shakes the Earth with pumping fervor,” and Baeble Music rhapsodizes, “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,” declares frontman Justin Hawkins. “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!”

Those in attendance at the Back to the USSA tour will be awestruck and downright delighted by the new material and the early works as The Darkness rip through their repertoire of ruddy great songs.
