Justin Hawkins confirms The Darkness' world tour plan

Singer also promises reformed rockers will release new music

Justin Hawkins confirms The Darkness' world tour plan
The Darkness will undertake a full world tour in 2012, according to singer Justin Hawkins.

The Lowestoft hair metallers, who announced that they were reuniting earlier this year after a five-year separation, have said they are now making plans to tour the world and will definitely release new music.

Speaking to Q Hawkins said: "There'll probably be a The Darkness album in 2012, but somehow we'll get new music out before then. A UK tour at the end of that year and then the world. Again."



The Darkness play their first gigs since reuniting next month, headlining the Norwich Waterfront on June 5, the Leamington Spa Assembly on June 6 and London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on June 8. These will act as a warm-up for their appearance at Download Festival playing underneath headliners Def Leppard on June 10.

The band's reunion is with their original line-up with brothers Justin and Dan Hawkins, bassist Frankie Poullain and drummer Ed Graham in the set-up.
