British glam rock jokers The Darkness have reformed with a new single and an Australian tour for May.
The leather-trousered clowns from The Darkness amused thousands in 2003 with their first album Permission To Land. Audiences were less amused by their second album One Way Ticket To Hell… And Back! in 2005 and they broke up after Justin Hawkins entered rehab.
Now the original line-up is back with a new single ‘Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us’ and have already done reunion shows in Europe and the US.
They’ve booked a tour for early May around the nation, with $72 tickets going on sale next Wednesday 4 April. Get them through MoshTix for Newcastle, OzTix for Brisbane, Ticketmaster for Melbourne, and Ticketek for Canberra and Sydney.
Check out the clip for ‘Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us’ below.
