The Darkness Announce Next Album: ‘Hot Cakes’ to Hit Stores in August

Marianne Harris

British rockers The Darkness have confirmed they will release their third studio album titled Hot Cakes on August 21 via Wind-Up Records. The record was produced by vocalist Justin Hawkins and guitarist Dan Hawkins with long-time collaborator Nick Brine and mixed by Bob Ezrin (KISS, Alice Cooper).

The Darkness kick off an Australian tour this week (May 4) before returning to the U.S. May 18 for select dates and three festival appearances: Saturday, May 19 at InfieldFest (Baltimore, Md.), Sunday, May 20 at Rock On The Range (Columbus, Ohio) and Saturday, May 26 at Rocklahoma. Following the U.S. shows, they’ll perform festivals across the U.K. and Europe as well as a hometown outdoor headlining gig at Thetford Fest in Suffolk before teaming with Lady Gaga for her Born This Way Ball tour. See all confirmed dates below, and tickets are available now at this link.

Since The Darkness resumed active service almost 12 months ago on the main stage of 2011’s Download Festival with their original line-up, the British group have accomplished a lot. They’ve completed sold-out tours of the UK and North America; were featured in a Superbowl ad; finished recording Hot Cakes and released a free teaser track and video, “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us.”
