The Darkness to reform with original line-up?

New reports suggest a reunion may be on the cards

Rumours are rife that The Darkness are about to announce a reformation with their original line-up.

The Norfolk hair metallers split in 2007 and formed separate bands. Singer Justin started Hot Leg, who released one album in 2009, while the remaining members formed the Stone Gods, who disbanded last year.

Rumours of a possible reformation first surfaced last summer, but the band members denied the claims.

None of the band have publicly commented on a possible reunion as yet.
