THE DARKNESS to Perform at the HOB in May

After thrilling sold-out crowds with their critically acclaimed U.S. tour this past February, THE DARKNESS will return stateside this May for select dates including a stop in NEW ORLEANS at HOUSE OF BLUES on WEDNESDAY, MAY 23.

Hailing from Lowestoft, Suffolk, THE DARKNESS–JUSTIN HAWKINS (vocals/guitars), DAN HAWKINS (guitars/backing vocals), FRANKIE POULLAIN (bass) and ED GRAHAM (drums)—are ready to launch a full-scale invasion with the release of their third studio album and first in eight years. Due out late summer, the as-yet-untitled album marks the follow-up to the group’s 2003 multi-platinum debut Permission To Land which spawned fan favorites “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” and “Get Your Hands Off My Woman” as well as the revered One-Way Ticket To Hell And Back which featured “One Way Ticket” and “Is It Just Me?.”

So far, 2012 has been a stellar year for THE DARKNESS, described by the LA Weekly as “…heroically reunited, with a returned sense of fun and still this millennium’s most multi-dimensionally entertaining live rock show.” They’ve left fans stunned, critics delighted (see select soundbites below), debuted a free new song “Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us” and made a surprise Superbowl commercial appearance with their classic hit “I Believe In A Thing Called Love.” The British-based band–who have won three prestigious BRIT Awards and sold millions of records worldwide—are also set to appear at this year’s Rock on the Range and Rocklahoma festivals while they’re stateside.
