Multi-platinum UK rock icons The Darkness – frontman/guitarist Justin Hawkins, guitarist/producer Dan Hawkins, bassist Frankie Poullain, drummer Rufus Taylor – released the brand new song “Nobody Can See Me Cry” from their forthcoming album Motorheart out November 19th via Cooking Vinyl. Album pre-orders are available at the band’s official store.
“Nobody Can See Me Cry” is a high-octane riffola featuring an eye-watering guitar solo of monstrous proportions, charging verses of utter determination and a high-flying chorus all powered by sheer angst, passion and unfiltered emotion. Regarding the single Justin Hawkins says, “’Nobody Can See Me Cry.’ It’s devastating. I yearn to be seen. On this I’ll settle for being heard. Listen to this song, it’s brilliant. I should know, I sang it."
“Nobody Can See Me Cry” follows the recent release of the lead single and title track of the band’s opus Motorheart. Paying homage to a devoted sex robot, “Motorheart” growls, pounds and stomps with Rufus Taylor’s drums, Frankie Poullain’s bass and Justin & Dan Hawkins’ guitars all turned up to 11, whilst Justin’s trademark vocals soar to ever more earthquaking levels. Motorheart is a record of immeasurable rock and roll extravagance, and yet another masterpiece from England’s favorite rock bands.
Motorheart will be released in a wide variety of formats that offer a complete aural experience. In addition to standard and deluxe versions - both digitally and on CD, there’s a heavyweight black vinyl album, limited edition colour LPs, an old-school cassette version and exclusive bundles and signed editions.
With a back catalogue overflowing with sonic gold and a live reputation that most bands can only dream of attaining, The Darkness has established themselves as one of the most loved and important British rock bands of our time. Their last album, 2019’s Easter Is Cancelled, became the band’s fourth Top 10 album in the UK, whilst also topping the Official Charts Top 40 Rock Chart and the iTunes Rock Chart, alongside receiving swaths of critical praise.
The Darkness will be showcasing the live potency of Motorheart on their extensive 22-date UK headline tour kicking off in November followed by a European run at the top of next year. A true spectacle to behold, fans will be treated to brand new songs from the album as well as hits from across their award-winning, platinum-selling back catalogue. Stay tuned for North American 2022 tour dates to be announced.
