The Darkness

The Darkness have just released their first new material in seven years, in the form of single "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us" which is not, thankfully, a cover of the Starship song. It is however, and probably goes without saying, a rocker and reasonably restrained, at least compared to The Darkness' second album. And pretty good! You can download the single for free at the band's website and watch its cool, animated video at the bottom of this post.

The single is timed to coincide with the launch of The Darkness' North American tour that kicks off tonight in Toronto. While their show at Irving Plaza on Saturday night (2/4) is sold out, the band added a second Irving show on Monday (2/6) to which tickets are still available. All Darkness tour dates are at the bottom of this post.
