The October 24 concert by reunited British rockers THE DARKNESS at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California will be broadcast as an exclusive television event on AXS TV starting at 10:00 p.m. PDT.
THE DARKNESS‘s third studio album, “Hot Cakes”, was released on August 21 via Wind-Up (North and South America) and PIAS (U.K. and rest of the world). After a seven-year wait, “Hot Cakes” — produced by the band’s Justin and Dan Hawkins with longtime collaborator Nick Brine and mixed by Bob Ezrin — delivers the epic rock anthems and infectious pop choruses the band has become renowned for worldwide.
Since THE DARKNESS — Justin Hawkins (vocals/guitars), Dan Hawkins (guitars/backing vocals), Frankie Poullain (bass) and Ed Graham (drums) — resumed active service more than a year ago on the main stage of 2011’s Download festival with their original lineup, the British group have accomplished a lot. They’ve completed sold-out tours of the U.K. and North America; were featured in a Superbowl ad (broadcast to over 100 million viewers in the tense fourth quarter of the game); finished recording “Hot Cakes” and released a free teaser track and video, “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us”.
