Classic Rock Exclusive: The Darkness Reveal New Album DetailsLowestoft rockers The Darkness have been speaking to Classic Rock about their forthcoming album. Frontman Justin Hawkins says that they’ve nearly finished writing the follow-up to 2012 comeback, Hot Cakes.
And it seems that the band’s choice of locale has been key. “We’ve been writing it on a remote island just off the coast of Ireland,” he explains. “It’s been a really inspirational place to work and a real luxury to be able to do that. It’s a great place to write songs. There’s really nothing to do but rock out and enjoy the scenery and the Atlantic. We have loads of super-strong material.”
Happy Birthday Frankie Poullain!Happy Birthday to the main man on the 4 string axe in The Darkness, Frankie! Hope you have a rockin' day in the sunshine!
