Professionally filmed video footage of reunited British rockers THE DARKNESS performing a brand new song, “Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us”, live on July 14 at High Lodge, Thetford, England can be seen below.
THE DARKNESS‘s third studio album, “Hot Cakes”, is being released today (Tuesday, 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.
Just a day after the release of “Hot Cakes”, THE DARKNESS will take over the @Rhapsody twitter handle live on Wednesday, August 22 at 10 a.m. PT to answer questions from fans. Fans can start sending their questions in to the @Rhapsody page with the hashtag #DarknessRhap at any time and the band will bring their sense of humor to the table to answer as many questions as they can come Wednesday morning.
Since THE DARKNESS — Justin Hawkins (vocals/guitars), Dan Hawkins (guitars/backing vocals), Frankie Poullain (bass) and Ed Graham (drums) — resumed active service 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”.
