Rejoice, Australians fair, in your home which you so rightly claim to be girt by sea – THE DARKNESS are quite simply thrilled to be returning to your shores. 

Those lovely people at Groovin The Moo festival have realised that there is simply NOT ENOUGH ROCK on your otherwise wonderful island, and have tasked us with saving YOU from inferior musical stylings. 

Besides leading the stellar festival line up at GTM, we also gift you headline shows in all of Australia’s favourite cities, showcasing our trademark mix of relentless rifferama, effortless haute couture, ridiculously loud noises and bright things that flash on and off.

Ask any fool – a DARKNESS show is a place where believers come together, where fluids are shared, and dreams are built. But most importantly, where rock and roll is crowned king EVERY NIGHT! Come one, come all…
