THE DARKNESS Releases Brand New Single 'Motorheart'
August 12, 2021
British rockers THE DARKNESS have unleashed the first taste and title track of their forthcoming opus "Motorheart", out November 19 via Cooking Vinyl.
Paying homage to a devoted sex robot, "Motorheart" growls, pounds and stomps with Rufus Taylor's drums, Frankie Poullain's bass and Justin and Dan Hawkins's guitars all turned up to 11, while Justin's trademark vocals soar to ever more earthquaking levels.
Regarding the single, Justin says: "'Motorheart' rocks harder than anything we've done before. It makes me happy and proud to crank it up and literally shake my Swiss chalet to its foundations. Dan did an awesome job on the production. It'll take your face off, but your skull will be grinning from meatus to meatus. Please, to enjoy."
"Motorheart" is a record of immeasurable rock and roll extravagance, and yet another masterpiece from England's favorite rock icons.
Released in a wide variety of formats, including standard and deluxe versions, both digitally and on CD. There's a heavyweight black vinyl album alongside limited-edition color LPs, an old-school cassette version. With exclusive bundles and signed editions to boot, it's the complete aural experience from THE DARKNESS, and a glorious addition to one of the most exciting canons in British rock music.
