The Darkness have released the first single “Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us” off their long awaited reunion album. This is officially the first new material the band has released since 2006. You can watch the video and download their new song FREE on their website! The Darkness returns all original members: Justin Hawkins (vocals/guitars), Dan Hawkins (guitars/backing vocals), Frankie Poullain (bass) and Ed Graham (drums). The Darkness are currently in the midst of their North American Tour and will be coming to LA @ HOB Sunset 2/19 and the legendary Fillmore in SF 2/21.
The Darkness are known for their outrageous brand of Rock and Roll which translates to an even more outrageous live show…sometimes even stringing up lead singer Justin Hawkins and letting him fly over the crowd like a Broadway version of Peter Pan. It remains to be seen how this 2012 version of the band gets down, but with several California tour dates coming up we’ll soon find out!
The Darkness have announced that they “will perform music from 2003’s multi-platinum album Permission To Land, including favorites “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” and “Get Your Hands Off My Woman”; 2005’s One-Way Ticket To Hell And Back with “One Way Ticket” and “Is It Just Me?”; as well as several new songs off their forthcoming yet-to-be-titled third album.”
