The Darkness have announced details of their third album, Hot Cakes, which will be out August 21 on Wind-Up Records. You can check out the cover art for the album below, which fits right in with the band's over-the-top style. In addition to "Everybody Have a Good Time" and "Nothin's Gonna Stop Us" which have already seen the light of day, Hot Cakes also includes a studio recording of The Darkness' take on Radiohead's "Street Spirit (Fade Out)" which has been a live favorite for years. You can stream it over at Pitchfork, and check out the full tracklist for the album below.

The Darkness were last in NYC back in May for a two-night stand at Irving Plaza. No new American Dates have been announced as of yet but the band are about to start a fairly massive European tour opening for Lady Gaga. All those dates are listed below.
