The Darkness have announced their jaw-droppingly ambitious quasi-sci-fi concept album Easter Is Cancelled, out on October 4th via Cooking Vinyl. The sixth studio album from the English rock band who formed in 2000, and the first since 2017’s Pinewood Smile.
Easter Is Cancelled is the band’s first concept record about “man’s brutality to man, the dichotomies that we live within and the alternate realities that exist alongside our blinkered comprehension of the Universe. The song cycle defines human existence through a parable – the slow lingering death and eventual glorious re-birth of rock n roll.”
Easter Is Cancelled will be released digitally and in full technicolour physical glory as a standard CD, digipack CD with bonus tracks and gatefold LP. Join The Darkness in their mission to take back control from the fools and liars who purport to lead us, and instead march forwards into the sunlit uplands of inclusivity, togetherness and rock’n’roll fellowship.
