Yahoo Music: Adam Lambert Revisits the Darkness Catalog for Epic ‘Glee’ Performance"More than four years after Adam Lambert recorded one of his finest tracks - the effervescent electro-rocker "Music Again," penned by famously catsuited Darkness frontman and all-around rock god Justin Hawkins - he has forged another glittering connection to the hard-charging pop-metal band, grandly performing the Darkness's "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" for "Glee."
And "Glee" has never been more glam."

The Guardian: Justin Hawkins of the Darkness on waiting for the end of 2013The Guardian did a feature this week where top artists in the music industry pick their best moments of 2013, where Justin Hawkins stated that 2013 hasn't been the best year for him, but there have been highlights.
"My favourite moment of 2013 is going to be 1 January 2014 - I can't wait for it to be over. There has been a lot of unfortunate illness in my family and it's been a weird time. A bad year. But there have been some ups as well. We won a prize [at the Classic Rock awards] for the first time in seven years - Most Members of a Band from East Anglia. No, it was the Showman award. I was in a really bad mood and I had planned what to say: something really ungracious. I had said the night before at our gig at the Electric Ballroom in London that we might get an award, and I asked the crowd: 'Should I be gracious or should I be a cunt?'"

Classic Rock Magazine : The Darkness play their hometown for the very first time“This is the first time in 13 years I’ve been embarrassed,” Justin Hawkins admits during The Darkness’ first ever hometown show.
“I’ve just realised how embarrassing it is to sing songs about going to school in Lowestoft… in Lowestoft, to people who probably went to school with me.
“But don’t worry. It didn’t last long. I’m already back to feeling awesome, as usual.”
With the wind howling in off the North Sea, Justin, brother Dan, Ed Graham and Frankie Poullain created their own weather system inside the brand new Aquarium venue, melting a capacity crowd of 800 on its opening night.
