The glam rockers are back soon for more Spinal Tap-esque moments...

The Darkness have announced that they will return to North America at the end of next month.

The glam rockers will play a 14-date tour, kicking off in Mansfield, Massachusetts on May 30, reports Rolling Stone.

The band have only just returned to the UK following their biggest ever shows in the US, but they have now decided to fly straight back to continue plugging their debut album ‘Permission To Land’.

The boys will then come back to Europe for a series of festival dates this summer, culminating in headline shows at the Carling Weekend in Reading and Leeds.

The new US dates are:

Mansfield Tweeter Center (May 30)

Portsmouth NTELOS Pavilion (June 2)

Charlotte Grady Cole Center (3)

Boca Raton Mizner Park Amphitheater (6)

Orlando Hard Rock Live (7)

Kansas City Memorial Hall (11)
