UK rockers THE DARKNESS will unleash a new single, “Last Of Our Kind”, the title track of their recent fourth album, on August 21st. The song has been described as “part VAN HALEN, part WATERBOYS, ALL THE DARKNESS.” It features a record-smashing choir of several thousand DARKNESS enthusiasts (The Darkness Army) who each contributed their individual performances using the Internet service. For the video the band decided to go back to the fans and 15 were chosen to come to the video shoot and asked to get “freaky on camera.” The result is a very entertaining film which shows THE DARKNESS’ audience are as wonderful as the band. Singer Justin Hawkins explained “Where would we be without our fans? Well, we wouldn't have a video for a start. Or at least, we wouldn't have a video with quite so many brilliant people in it. I'm so proud of them, they never disappoint us”

Last Of Our Kind is the meaty and impassioned follow-up to 2012’s Hot Cakes, which saw the band reunited having enjoyed a well-publicized and well-deserved hiatus. As distinguished guests of DEF LEPPARD, THE DARKNESS destroyed Download Festival in 2011, then waved goodbye to their loved ones and toured planet Earth for over 18 months. They rounded off 2013 with a celebratory tour marking the 10th Anniversary of their legendary number one debut album. Permission To Land featured “I Believe In A Thing Called Love”, “Love Is Only A Feeling”, “Love On The Rocks With No Ice” and “Love Is A Many Splendored Thing”; it was the fastest selling debut album by a British band in America since that of THE SPICE GIRLS.

Last Of Our Kind is available on limited edition colour vinyl, CD and downloadable computer files.

THE DARKNESS recently announced the Blast Of Our Kind UK tour, to commence on November 30th in Norwich and culminate in a triumphant show at London's Roundhouse on December 20th. It is the first, and a golden, opportunity for enthusiasts to see THE DARKNESS on their own stage in support of the new, fourth album Last Of Our Kind.
