The EP is out on 5 Nov.

The Darkness have released new single ‘Nobody Can See Me Cry’. “It’s devastating”, says frontman Justin Hawkins. “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”. Their new album, ‘Motorheart’, will be out on 19 Nov.
