Band are making a new album and playing Download
Justin Hawkins has said he is “gobsmacked” by the fan response to news that The Darkness are reforming.
The spandex-clad rockers, who split in 2007, have got back together in their original line-up to make a new album and play the Download Festival.
“Thanks for all the lovely messages of support,” he wrote. “I’m gobsmacked and overwhelmed by all the positivity in and around The Darkness!”
