Last of our Kind, the new album being released by glam rockers The Darkness is set to be released on June 1st. A single, named “Open Fire” was released a few days ago, and it might sound a little different to what most Darkness fans are used to. We get a better idea of Justin’s broader than expected vocal range in this song in particular. He is definitely more grunge than squeal in this track, and I like it.
The other single, “Barbarian”, which was shown off back in February is the only other taste we have had of the album so far. According to Justin it features “a riff that weakens lady-knees and a chorus that makes grown men shit directly in their pants”.
Sounds good to me, check out the two tracks below:
