The Darkness announce new album
Out on the 1st June 2015, The Darkness’ new album ‘Last of Our Kind’ will be released in partnership with Kobalt Label Services and is the first album to feature new drummer Emily Dolan Davies. She replaces original drummer Ed Graham who departed in mysterious circumstances. Having been drumming since 1999, Emily has played with everybody from the likes of Bono, Bryan Ferry and Tricky. Now she has shown herself to be equal to the ultimate music challenge.
‘Last of Our Kind’ is the meaty and impassioned follow-up to 2012’s ‘Hot Cakes’ which saw the band reunited having enjoyed a well-publicized and well-deserved hiatus. As distinguished guests of Def Leppard, The Darkness destroyed Download Festival in 2011, then waved goodbye to their loved ones and toured planet Earth for over 18 months. They rounded off 2013 with a celebratory tour marking the 10th Anniversary of their legendary number one debut album. ‘Permission to Land’ featured the classics ‘I Believe In a Thing Called Love’, ‘Love is Only a Feeling’, ‘Love on the Rocks with No Ice’ and ‘Love is a Many Splendoured Thing’; it was the fastest selling debut album by a British band in America since that of The Spice Girls.
‘Last of Our Kind’ will be released on limited edition colour vinyl, Compact Disc and downloadable computer files. The Darkness will be announcing more touring plans for later this year very, very soon.
