THE DARKNESS UK TOUR 2017
Supported by Blackfoot Gypsies
“The Darkness is proud to return once again to the stages of our sceptered isle. We are here to confirm our reputation as the mightiest live band treading the boards in this saccharine age of music made by computers, millionaires and halfwits. Sometimes by all three! We will once again be showcasing our trademark mix of relentless rifferama, effortless haute couture, ridiculously loud noises and bright things that flash on and off.
As any fool will tell you, a Darkness show is a place where believers come together, where fluids are shared, and dreams are built. But most importantly, where rock and roll is crowned king EVERY NIGHT!
And as if that wasn’t enough, we have made a frankly stunning fifth album that will be unleashed on the world in September of this year by the lovely Cooking Vinyl people. Good times… so come one, come all!!”

The Blackfoot Gypsies have unleashed a set of original roadhouse rockin’ tunes with To the Top, on Plowboy Records. The Nashville, Tennessee based powerhouse quartet demonstrate raucous energy and soul on this collection delivering their take on white-knuckled rock’n’roll.
Across the 15 tracks of To the Top, the Blackfoot Gypsies fuse their influences — swamp blues cool, downhome hillbilly funk and homegrown punk panache — into a lean, mean machine invoking such classic musical malcontents as the Rolling Stones, the Faces and Mott the Hoople, while sparking and spitting 21st-century fire. It’s the type of record that could only come from a band that learned to rock the old-fashioned way — one sweaty, full-throttle live performance at a time.
