Unfortunately, you'll have to wait a little over two weeks to hear the complete new album, but in the meantime, treat yourself to this new single - 'Hammer & Tongs'! This is one of a few new songs The Darkness actually played on their mini-tour of Ireland earlier this year, so fans might already be familiar with the tune. Album teaser 'Barbarian' and first official single 'Open Fire' are both heavy, rocking tracks, so The Darkness is now showing you a less barbaric - more twangy, groovy side of their new album 'Last of Our Kind' (due to be released on June 1st). Hammer & Tongs definitely carries a resemblance to for instance 'Start Me Up' by The Rolling Stones, so there's never a doubt that The Darkness wears their influences on their sleeves. ...GUITAR!
