Having recently stormed Download with a secret set backed with a crowd of barbarians (and a 30 row strong crowd outside the tent!) The Darkness unleash a new single on 21st August. ‘Last of Our Kind’ is the title track of their recent 4th album which entered the UK charts at No. 12 on its release in June. The song has been described as 'part Van Halen, part Waterboys, ALL The Darkness'. It features a record-smashing choir of several thousand Darkness enthusiasts (The Darkness Army) who each contributed their individual performances using the Internet service. The single, described by one reviewer as “(the track’s) effortlessly catchy hooks and righteous leads deliver pure rock perfection”, is a stomping rocker which demands hands be thrown in the air (when not playing air guitar on the excellent solo).

The album ‘Last of Our Kind’ has received some of the best reviews of the bands 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” whilst Total Guitar said “Their very British blend of battle rock and classy ballads still hits the spot.

The band have also announced a UK 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.
