Is there a happy end or not? Today it seems like that there is one after the The Darkness reunited in 2011 and the critics of their latest album were more than good – so many people swear that this was the best album they ever brought out.
However, one thing they didn’t lose after the break up and the conciliation and that is the fun to play live on stage and the happiness they get when they play their songs.
The Darkness is coming to Vienna, Arena Wien on March 14, 2013 and with sounds similar to AC/DC or Queen they will convince the Vienna crowd for sure.
“Hot Cakes” is a great album and full of power and joy to play and one is for sure: Justin Hawkins is more enthusiastic than he ever was before – so you can prepare yourself for an evening full of pure hard Rock’nRoll!
The guitarist tells Billboard, “I think it’s important the next album comes out quickly. ‘Hot Cakes‘ has been a great introduction to let people know we’re back. Now we need to keep the output up, really.” To that end, Hawkins says the band members have already started looking head to the next release.
He explains, “Every day we set up our little [portable] studio and start jotting down ideas. It’ll be out in 2014. This year we’ll be touring and writing, then early 2014 we’ll hopefully be recording it or continuing to write it and get it out later that year.”

The Darkness’ Justin Hawkins has claimed that he “connects with a gay audience”. Speaking to the Guardian, the flamboyant frontman insisted that although his sexuality is his private business, he and his bandmates had found popularity with a gay audience because they’re not “men’s men”.
“My sexual persuasion is no one’s business but my own – but I’m easily persuaded,” he said. “Just kidding. It’s funny because it came up recently in a German interview. They reckoned that when you Google Justin Hawkins, one of the first things that comes up is ‘Is Justin Hawkins gay?’”
He then added: ”And I’d like to think that’s because there’s something I do that connects with a gay audience.”
Speaking about he and his bandmates’ style, meanwhile, he said: ” Yeah. I think we’re all a bit effeminate. We’re not men’s men, much as we may appear to be so.”
