The Darkness Returning To The U.S. In 2012

    In case you forgot, cock-rockers the Darkness reformed earlier this year with plans to tour and record a new album. While we’re waiting to catch wind of the latter, the band has announced a string of North American tour dates for early 2012. Following a gig in Toronto at the beginning of February, the Darkness will move across the States before landing in California 20 days later. That’s all we know for now, though expect opening acts to be announced soon. I’d imagine. You can view the tour dates below. [CoS]
