The Darkness Brings Tour De Prance to Showbox

It’s been almost two decades have passed since two brothers in England decided to have spot of fun by forming a band.  They teamed up with two other English lads to become what we now know as powerhouse metal band known as The Darkness.  Their initial single “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” shot to the top of the charts. While The Darkness took a brief hiatus in 2006, and returned stronger than ever after launching a new album Hot Cakes.  Since then, The Darkness has been busy touring the world and making new music. They’ve recorded and released two more albums since their return, including 2017’s rocking Pinewood Smile. Now these legends of British metal are coming to Seattle as part of their “Tour De Prance” tour.  You can catch them blowing up The Showbox on Tuesday, April 3rd. They’re on tour with the oddly named but incredibly fun Diarrhea Planet.
