The Darkness have announced dates for a world tour.

The first leg of the "Let Them Eat Cakes" tour kicks off in North America on January 10 before visiting Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

UK fans can buy tickets from today, with the rest of Europe getting access from Friday. Tickets for the US, Australia and New Zealand go on sale next week.

Meanwhile, Amazon is currently selling their new album "Hot Cakes" for a discount at $5 during November. It is their first album since reforming in March 2011, after splitting in 2005.

In August, frontman Justin Hawkins said: "There's something I do that connects with a gay audience... I think we're all a bit effeminate. We're not men's men, much as we may appear to be so."

You can see the full list of tour dates in the image below or at the Darkness website.

    I've always had tremendous respect for this band. It's great that they're coming to Milwaukee, most bigger bands stop at Chicago and keep going through.

    Nice, might go. Their new album was disappointing though.

    As was the 2nd one. Both had like 1 good song on them The only reason why this band should be allowed to exist after all these years is their live show. They're a real hoot, prefect for summer festivals

    went to their concert in Adelaide only a few months ago, will be keen to go again by the time April rolls around. definitely one of the most fun concerts I've ever been to.

    No surprise there! I'm from Wales and I've actually been to LESS gigs since moving to South-west England. The nearest people come to here is like Birmingham at best...

    Yeah I've hardly been to any gigs in Wales, I either have to go to Birmingham or Bristol usually. I'm seeing Steel Panther on Tuesday though, but that is in Bristol.

    No! They're not coming to Montreal. Their show at the Verdun Auditorium on their first Canadian tour was and still is one of the greatest shows I've ever seen.

    For being supposedly influenced by bands like Queen, AC/DC and Thin lizzy, they definitely don't rock hard enough... they have ability to make it happen but they've only put it together on a few songs... There are definitely worse bands though.
