The ten-track album produced by Dan Hawkins (who also produced the band’s magnificent 2015 release Last Of Our Kind), examines the role of the musician in the barbarous culture of the world today, and their almost divine responsibility to challenge the establishment – something that most rock ’n roll artists seem to have given up on in favour of easy celebrity. And yet at the heart of this tale is love, loss and heartbreak, where redemption is ultimately found in the brotherhood of band friendship and the power of the guitar, as brought full circle in the glorious album closer “We Are The Guitar Men.”
Easter Is Cancelled will be released digitally and in full technicolour physical glory as a standard CD, digipak CD with bonus tracks, gatefold LP, limited edition colour vinyl gatefold LP and cassette. The album is available to pre-order now from the band’s Official Store with special signed copies, deluxe edition and exclusive album bundle offers.
The Darkness will be spreading their Easter Is Cancelled message across the land with a full North American tour in Spring 2020 (dates to be announced). The band is set to open a string of stadium dates with fellow Suffolk-based musician Ed Sheeran in August, they’ll play the KISS Kruise in October and will kick of the UK and Ireland headline dates of the Easter Is Cancelled tour this winter.

I grew up in a household full of rock music, studied journalism in college, and then became a scientist.Although my science career has served me well, music has always played a major role in my life. I grew up reading "Creem" magazine; I play several musical instruments as a "hobby";and it seems a camera has always been in my hand. Now, I am combining what I love the most--music and photography--serving as editor of Rock At Night. I travel between the US and UK seeking my dream! My motto: life is short...no regrets. Chyrisse
