When The Darkness first burst on to the scene back in 2003, they fast became one of the hottest rock bands on the planet courtesy of their classic rock riffs, throwback style and tongue-in-cheek persona. The group’s debut album “Permission to Land” went multi-platinum, propelled by the hit singles “I Believe in a Thing Called Love,” “Growing on Me,” and “Get Your Hands off My Woman,” and the band looked set to rub shoulders with the cream of the rock scene for many years to come.
But that was before they went into meltdown. First, bass player Frankie Poullain left in 2004 due to flamboyant lead singer Justin Hawkins’ cocaine and alcohol addictions. Then the band’s second album “One Way Ticket To Hell... And Back” failed to hit the heights of its predecessor and Hawkins subsequently quit the band after a spell in rehab.
It took four and half years for the group to get back together, but following the release of their third album “Hot Cakes” the boys are back in form and are currently following a successful supporting slot for Lady Gaga to come to Poland as part of their own European tour.
