Since reforming for Download Festival 2011, The Darkness have kept a relatively low profile but with a couple of warm-up shows and the festival itself coming in the next 10 days, the Lowestoft boys have posted a three-minute video of them rehearsing and Justin talking into the camera whilst driving a car. Nice.
The new album, small chihuahuas and Justin Hawkins’ twirly moustache all feature heavily. The Darkness are one of the great British rock bands of the past two decades. Get excited.
