The Darkness Still Exist, Release New Song
Drugs are bad, mmkay? No need to look any farther than The Darkness for proof of that (or, you know, the hundreds of talented musicians we’ve lost to OD or burnout since the beginning of rock n’ roll), as the band went on a seriously long hiatus after achieving success with their album Permission to Land and has had nothing but a string of disasters befall them ever since.
But through every darkness, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and it seems as though the band has at last pulled themselves up by their bootstraps, and with a revitalized lineup that includes Rufus Taylor (the son of Queen drummer Roger Taylor) and the return of all three other original members, they are releasing a new album and single.
The album, entitled Last of Our Kind, is slated to be out this June. Here’s hoping they can hold it together, it sounds pretty promising.
