Do you remember The Darkness? That circus from Scotland? Well, the band has returned and they are preparing a new single which will be unleashed on August 21. "Last of Our Kind" is the title track of the band's recent fourth album, which entered the U.K. chart at No. 12 on its release in June.
For the video, the band decided to go back to the fans and 15 were chosen to come to the video shoot and asked to get "freaky on camera." The result is a very entertaining film which shows The Darkness's audience are as wonderful as the band. Singer Justin Hawkins explained: "Where would we be without our fans? Well, we wouldn't have a video for a start. Or at least, we wouldn't have a video with quite so many brilliant people in it. I'm so proud of them; they never disappoint us."
The album "Last of Our Kind" has received some of the best reviews of The Darkness's career to date, with Classic Rock proclaiming it "a glorious return to form for the flamboyant rockers… They've only gone and made their finest album since 'Permission To Land'" while Total Guitar said: "Their very British blend of battle rock and classy ballads still hits the spot."
The Darkness has announced a U.K. tour for November/December where they will entertain and astonish fans all over the country with their marvelous tunes and killer riffs. A few UK festival spots will also warm them up nicely.
