It's been 5 long years, but The Darkness are back and have been added to the friday night of Download opening for Def Leppard
It has also been announced that they are recording material for their third studio album in Dan's home studio, Leeders Farm just outside of Lowestoft.

They have just launched a new official website.

I can't wait for some tour dates

Do you love Alice In Chains and Metallica? How about Tool and Velvet Revolver?...then you need to check out one of the most refreshing new hard rock bands in awhile...-->The Liberty Underground<--

That bassist is such a boss. I've never properly listened to the band, but I once bought a poster of theirs on the sole account of them being badass.

good call.

Looks like Justin has traded his jumpsuits for a killer moustache. Was it worth it? Only time will tell. He sure looks strange in a tshirt.
This isn't coincidence
there's no such
Hell, they would rock BDO. I'm only a casual fan but I'd love to see that.

Wow, what a fall from grace haha. I know they've been gone for 5 years, but last time they were in Manchester they played our arena (which is the largest in Europe) and now they're essentially playing a club.
I figure the way it works is that they probably have to prove to the world that they can still do their magic. Bear in mind that they're probably not as popular as they were 5-6 years ago I'm sure when they release their new album they'll fire up the arenas again(I hope).
Anyone have an idea how much the tickets will cost for their tour?
Anyone got any good tips for getting the fuzzy tone Justin uses in the solo of Growing On Me?
Can't wait to hear some new music.

Permission to Land is easily in my personal top 25 albums of all time. Wasn't as keen on their second effort, but Permission must have stayed in my CD player or somewhere near by for at least 2 years.

Saw them in Edinburgh a few weeks ago. Absolutely brilliant. Back better than ever, and the catsuits are still very much alive.
