The Darkness’ upcoming Blast of Our Kind tour will culminate in a triumphant show at London’s Roundhouse. It is the first, and a golden, opportunity for enthusiasts to see The Darkness on their own stage in support of the new, fourth album Last of Our Kind.

Last of Our Kind is an album of unparalleled beauty and power. It is to be released on June 1st, at which point children and adults alike will rejoice. The first single Open Fire has already been unveiled and the video, directed by Simon Emmett, is currently lording over the internet, stamping it’s scaly feet and pecking at cyber grubs like a magnificent peacock. The album also features Barbarian, which was released as a ‘teaser track’, with a brutally beguiling animated lyric video illustrated by Nick Roche.

Blast of Our Kind will be The Darkness’ first UK tour since 2013. Those in attendance will be awestruck by the all-new material and downright delighted by the early works as The Darkness rip through their repertoire of ruddy great songs with new drummer Rufus Taylor.
