The Album Will Be Out In October!

The release will be followed by UK live dates!

The Darkness have been around 21 years now, and in that time, have released some great music in 6 albums. So fans will be pleased to hear that the band will be delivering album number 7 in October of this year. The band confirmed the news this morning via their socials, announcing that the album will release 15th October, with their live dates to promote the album beginning just over a month later.

The album is titled, ‘Motorheart’ and is available to pre-order from their website. As is tradition these days, the album is being made available in multiple formats, such as CD, Heavyweight Black Vinyl, Coloured Vinyl and Cassette! With each pre-order, you get access to pre-sale tickets for the live shows.
