The inimitable four-piece reveal the first single proper from their first album in three years, Last Of Our Kind

Following the return of The Darkness last month with ‘Barbarian’, they’re now ready to unveil the first single from their forthcoming fourth album, Last Of Our Kind. ‘Open Fire’, which you can hear above, sees the infamous band continue their return from their hiatus which officially ended with 2012’s Hot Cakes album.

Last Of Our Kind marks new drummer Emily Dolan Davies’ first contributions to studio sessions and will be released in all the usual formats including a limited edition colour vinyl. ‘Open Fire’, meanwhile, will be available to buy from June 1, the same day as the album’s release, via Kobalt Label Services. Watch the video for ‘Barbarian’, the album’s opening track, below.
