The Darkness will be embarking on a headlining North American tour next year in support of their latest record, Motorheart, and are brining The Dead Deads along with them as support.

The run is set to kick off on March 9 in San Diego, meaning The Darkness will have quite the long flight from the U.K. before finally settling down on U.S. soil and quickly getting back on the move. Then, it's 34 dates on the road with a closing show in Boston on April 24 and a comparatively quicker return flight home.

Excited for the tour, frontman Justin Hawkins cheekily commented, "You there, in the Americas — hear me, and hear me well: The Darkness know your pain, know that you have cried yourselves to sleep every night, bereft of quality English rock music. Well, desist from weeping and pull up your fully grown adult pants — salvation is upon you! As doctors, we UNDERSTAND the healing power of rock music and we have instructed our minions to make arrangements for us to visit your moderately distant shores. The cryogenically sealed Tupperware box of roadies has been set to 'Thor' and the mighty winged chariot has been dusted off. Remember — one lick of Darkness sweat and you will be cured — you will literally walk again, without Covid or anything! But what price freedom and eternal life, I hear you ask? To you sir, about thirty bucks (plus local taxes and booking fee). Now get the fuck in!"

Well, alright then — you heard him!

Tickets go on sale on Dec. 13 at 10AM local time and can be purchased here. See the full list of stops directly below.
