British rockers THE DARKNESS recently stopped by Yahoo! Music to play acoustic versions of the songs “I Believe In A Thing Called Love”, “Every Inch Of You” and “Love Is Not The Answer”. The band also sat down for an in-depth interview. Check out the footage below.
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”.
