Eighteen years after first cracking the U.S. charts with “I Believe In a Thing Called Love,” schmaltzy rock band The Darkness is still making music. The band has announced the upcoming release of “Motorheart,” the follow-up to the 2019 album, “Easter is Cancelled.” A press releasing describing the new album’s sound says it features the group’s “trademark blazing guitar riffs and solos, soaring falsetto and immeasurable rock ’n roll extravagance.”

“The time has come, the walrus said, to put your fookin pants on your head and rock like Satan is eating your private parts with a pointy fork,” says quirky frontman Justin Hawkins. “Yes, we, The Darkness, are the f*** back on tour, praise Satan’s better half. Come and party with us like it’s the last orders at the last chance saloon!”
“Motorheart” is due next month.
