The Darkness announce 2013 world tour

UK rockers The Darkness have announced dates for part one of their 2013 Let Them Eat Cakes World Tour.

The trek is in support of the reunited band’s third studio album, “Hot Cakes,” which was released in August.

The 2013 live shows start January 10 in Fort Lauderdale, FL, with a North American run that wraps February 2 in Aspen, CO.

On February 16, The Darkness bring their show to Europe and the UK for six weeks before heading to Australia and New Zealand for a series of dates in April.

Since The DarknessJustin Hawkins (vocals/guitars), Dan Hawkins (guitars/backing vocals), Frankie Poullain (bass) and Ed Graham (drums) – resumed active service a year ago on the main stage of 2011's Download festival with their original lineup, the British group have accomplished a lot.

They've completed sold-out tours of the U.K. and North America; were featured in a Superbowl ad (broadcast to over 100 million viewers in the tense fourth quarter of the game); finished recording "Hot Cakes" and released a free teaser track and video, "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us."

The Darkness made its U.K. live comeback in June 2011 in front of just 200 people at the Norwich Waterfront - check out video of the show here.
