It’s been a few years since The Darkness’ last album, 2012’s Hot Cakes, and today the band announced that their fourth album, Last of Our Kind, will be coming in June. The UK quartet are previewing the album with “Barbarian,” which is one of the more metal-sounding songs the band has written. Anchored by a monstrous riff, Justin Hawkins actually restrains his voice until the chorus, which sounds kind of like 3 Inches of Blood. The song is accompanied by an appropriately bloody animated video.
Last of Our Kind will be out on June 1. You can preorder it through PledgeMusic and will get an instant grat download of “Barbarian.”
