After what will be a three-year gap between visits, UK rock favourites The Darkness will be back on Aussie and New Zealand shores to spread their Easter Is Cancelled message with a headline tour in March 2020. On a mission to lead us to the sunlit uplands of inclusivity, togetherness and rock ‘n’ roll fellowship, The Darkness will play shows in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Auckland.

These performances promise to be incredibly special, reflecting the grand scope and vision from the band’s new album Easter Is Cancelled, alongside epic live favourites such as  ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’ and ‘Love Is Only A Feeling’ from their spectacular canon of hits.

In addition to today’s announcement, The Darkness have also gifted us a brand new single ‘Heart Explodes,’ taken from their jaw-droppingly ambitious quasi-sci-fi concept album. ‘Heart Explodes’ is an almighty mini-rock opera, which finds The Darkness baring all in a multitude of heartfelt emotions reflecting the hardships, struggles and changing relationships of life.

Listen to ‘Heart Explodes’ here.

The new Easter Is Cancelled album is due for release on 4th October 2019 and you can pre-order it here.
