The Darkness Reform


    We’ve been here before: Cock-rock titans the Darkness looked like they were going to reform in 2010, only for singer Justin Hawkins to call the rumors “essentially horse shit.” But now it looks like he’s had a change of heart about putting the band back together, and Gigwise is reporting that the deed is done and the original lineup of the group will perform once again. This essentially means that Hawkins has patched up his differences with brother Dan, although presumably some tricky negotiations with bassist Frankie Poullain, who left the band at its peak and wrote a tell-all book about the experience, were also undertaken. Let’s hope some ridiculously over-the-top reunion hi-jinks are in store.

    You can find out what they’re up to with this recently launched website.
