The Return of The Darkness

2011-04-14 | Posted in Music News

About a year ago rumors started that British glam rockers The Darkness were reuniting. Brothers Justin and Dan Hawkins were said to have buried the hatchet and started writing music together again. Then all was quiet up until a couple of months ago, when all of a sudden an official Facebook group for The Darkness appeared, and a website, theactualdarkness.com. Now it seems as though a summer tour is in the works, and with the original four-piece lineup none the less! The Darkness are scheduled to appear at the Download Festival on June 10th, as well as Getaway Rock in Sweden on July 8th.




I fondly remember seeing The Darkness back in 2004 at Fryshuset in Stockholm, and the great show they put on. At one point Justin passed right by where we were standing during Love on the Rocks With No Ice, when one of the crew members were carrying him around on his shoulders through the audience while he played the guitar solo. There are also reports coming out of a new album that is supposedly almost done. Hopefully this means that we’ll get to see The Darkness touring behind a new album in the fall as headliners instead of just festival appearances.
