“MOTORHEART” FROM THE DARKNESS OUT NOW
LOS ANGELES, CA – Multi-platinum UK rock icons THE DARKNESS – frontman/guitarist Justin Hawkins, guitarist/producer Dan Hawkins, bassist Frankie Poullain, drummer Rufus Taylor – released their brilliant new album Motorheart, via Cooking Vinyl. The band’s opus has been greeted with both critical acclaim and huge excitement from fans, who have been titillated by a string of fantastic tracks and videos.
Singles “It’s Love, Jim,”“Jussy’s Girl,”“Nobody Can See Me Cry” and “Motorheart” demonstrate an album of immeasurable rock and roll extravagance and yet another masterpiece from England’s favorite glam rock giants. “It’s Love, Jim” is an all-out rock ‘n’ roll barrage, “Jussy’s Girl” oozes melodic rock, “Nobody Can See Me Cry” is a high-octane riffola and the growling, pounding “Motorheart” brims with the band’s trademark vocals and blazing guitars.
Loudwire dubs Motorheart “A full force rock ‘n’ roll bash,” Kerrang! calls it “Riff-filled and joyfully thrusting” and The Big Takeover raves, “Motorheart… is a glorious exercise in meaty arena rock guitar riffs and soaring falsetto vocals.” Billboard praises, the “album helps solidify the band’s legacy as one of the United Kingdom’s preeminent rock acts of the past two decades,” Alternative Press gushes, “On their seventh album, the four-piece are back at it, creating joyous, defiant rock that pummels and shakes” and The Aquarian enthuses, “The amazing Motorheart (is) another eventual classic, with songs that should be chart toppers and radio staples.” Ultimate Classic Rock declares, “The Darkness’ rock ‘n’ roll sounds like one of the genre’s last great hopes, all delivered with a wink, a smile and an armful of killer riffs,” Vintage Guitar Magazine proclaims, “The Darkness is a fierce, rockin’ band that wears its influences proudly” and Riff Magazine says, “With Motorheart, The Darkness lives up to its glitzy, campy, hard-rocking reputation, crafting its best album since its debut.”
