The video for “Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us”, the first new song in six years from reunited British rockers THE DARKNESS, can be seen below.
“Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us” was recorded and produced by the band and Nick Brine in Norfolk, England and mixed in Austin, Texas by Chris “Frenchie Smith”. The video for the song was created by artist Thom Lessner and director Ted Passon. As a “thank you” for all who’ve supported the band with sold-out tours on both sides of the Atlantic, an MP3 of the song will be available for free. The song as well as the video will be available on the band’s official site, www.theactualdarkness.com.
THE DARKNESS will kick off its first North American tour since 2004 to a sold-out crowd in Toronto tonight. The tour will wrap on February 25 in Seattle. The trek will feature all the guitar mastery and wild pyrotechnics that THE DARKNESS shows have become well-known for. The group will perform music from 2003 album “Permission To Land”, including favorites “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” and “Get Your Hands Off My Woman”; 2005′s “One-Way Ticket To Hell And Back” with “One Way Ticket” and “Is It Just Me?”; as well as several new songs off their forthcoming yet-to-be-titled third album. This marks the band’s first return to the States since their 2004 tour supporting “Permission To Land”.
THE DARKNESS made its U.K. live comeback in June 2011 in front of just 200 people at the Norwich Waterfront.
THE DARKNESS‘ first album, “Permission To Land”, was released in 2003, hitting the No. 1 spot in the U.K. chart and winning “MasterCard British Album” at the 2004 Brit Awards (along with “Best British Group” and “British Rock Act”).
Between 2003 and 2006, THE DARKNESS was honored with many awards and accolades; along with three Brit Awards, the band won an Ivor Novello in 2004 for “Songwriters Of The Year”, four Kerrang! Awards, two Metal Hammer Awards, an MTV Europe Music Award and even an Elle Style Award in 2004 for “Most Stylish Band”.
