there’s some “proper” new music coming your way very very shortly. we’ll send you news on that soon.
BUT, in the meantime… if you’re coming to any of the shows on the tour, you might need … ‘SECOND FIDDLE’ from HERE ;
that there is a home demo of the track some of you will recognise or will come to recognise as the intro track from the shows these days.
download it for free, and familiarise yourselfs with it!
and, here’s the lyrics, for those who wish to singalong on the night -

It is with great regret that we have to announce that, unfortunately, The Darkness will be unable to perform in Buckley tonight.
Justin has been told by a doctor that not only should he not be singing tonight, he should also not even be talking throughout the day, such is the inflammation of his throat caused by an extended run of shows without a day off, and lingering traces of a cold.
we do NOT take these decisions lightly. all of us here at Darkness HQ hate having to announce cancellations, and they only ever happen when all other avenues have been explored and discounted.
due to the fact that the tour runs right up until Christmas, with no suitable spaces to reschedule the show during that time, we will have to look at trying to make this show work early in 2014.
in the meantime, refunds are available from point of purchase for those that would rather get a refund now.
once again, and on behalf of Justin, the rest of the band, and us here… we apologise for any inconvenience this causes you.
PS: at time of writing this, the doctor and Justin believe that a day’s full rest, vitamins and soothing liquids will ensure he is back on form by tomorrow. so this should NOT cause concern for our friends in Scotland who’s shows follow.
should there be anything not addressed here, please contact information@ mythophonic.com for human contact.

Dear United Kingdom & Ireland.
WITH the first show on 18th December selling out pronto and lots of you missing out, we’ve been able to arrange a second show at CLAREMONT PIER (Britain’s furthest Eat venue) on 19th December.
Even better, this show will be 14+, but EVERYONE ATTENDING regardless of age will need to bring a valid form of ID to get in to make this work.
The first show is still 18+.
Tickets go onsale TOMORROW morning at 9am (no presale!) from http://www.theactualdarkness.com/tour-dates/
ALSO… we’re pleased to announce that Derbyshire’s magnificent LostAlone (https://www.facebook.com/lostaloneofficial) will join us as special guests for the whole UK & Ireland run.
opening the shows on the mainland will be our friends from The River 68′s playing as an acoustic duo (young Daniel Hawkins has produced their debut album too).
opening the Dublin & Belfast shows will be Belfast’s own Mojo Fury
