After a bit of an extended break, the Darkness returned in August with their latest disc ‘Hot Cakes,’ the follow-up to 2005's 'One Way Ticket to Hell... and Back.' Now, as if making up for lost time, the band is plotting to take their tasty musical treats out on the road again for a 2013 headlining run that will span 15 countries.

While the band spent several months at the end of this year opening the show for Lady Gaga, it's time for a return to headlining status. The Brit rockers have announced their own ‘Let Them Eat Cakes’ world tour that will kick off in the States on Jan. 10 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and take them all the way through to mid-April, winding down in New Zealand.

The band will spend all of January in the U.S. before seeing Germany, England, Scandinavia, France Switzerland, Italy, and Australia in February and March, saving Australia for April. Check out all of the announced dates below.
